Celebrating 40 Years of Pride Since Stonewall


On June 28, 1969  a series of demonstrations took place at the Stonewall Inn in Greenwich Village in New York City that was cited as the first time gays and lesbian fought back against government sponsored discrimination.

With Gay Pride celebrations reaching its pinnacle in June, a new video has been released commemorating that event and the legacy of activism and history of the gay rights movement for 40 years by the LGBT community.

There has been a lot of progess but we still are in the midst of the biggest civil rights movement of our day.  Let us remember those brave souls of Stonewall and carry on the fight for equality!

  1. I commend you for speaking out for your rights. I have a gay brother who actively protest for his gay rights and I could never be any prouder of him. I am helping him fight Proposition 8 through the sell of his 40 Years of Pride commemorative t-shirts. If you are interested in helping with this initiative please contact us. You can view the t-shirt at http://www.bitchyteez.com or on my brother’s blog at http://anythingbutstraight.blogspot.com/.
