Gay Pride

Gay FlagJune 28th, 1969 — A lot has changed Since Stonewall But not enough.

Employment discrimination. Bashings. The military ban. (may be changing, finally) etc.

Don't feel much like celebrating this year.

You think a lot would have changed in 41 years, since the Stonewall Riots, but last year Fort Worth, TX celebrated by reenacting the raid on a gay bar. Gays can be fired from a job just for being gay. Kept out of housing. etc. You know, all those "special rights" we keep asking about. Like being treated equally before the law.
