STONEWALL UPRISING

~HONORING THOSE BRAVE SOULS WHO CAME BEFORE ME~

I was a teenager at this time.

I was barely 18 going on 19.

I wasn’t sure about my sexuality yet I knew I was different. I was living in Puerto Rico and cut away from these happenings in New York.

With time, I have come to learn about the importance of this uprising and I honor those who came before me and cleared the way that allowed me to accept and cherish my sexuality and live a fulfilling life, the way I am …

for I was born this way!

Forty-eight years ago today, New York City police began harassing LGBTQ patrons of the Stonewall Inn simply for congregating, those patrons decided they’d had enough.

~Human Rights Campaign~

The Stonewall Riots (also referred to as the Stonewall Uprising or the Stonewall Rebellion) were a series of spontaneous, violent demonstrations by members of the gay (LGBT) community against a police raid that took place in the early morning hours of June 28, 1969, at the Stonewall Inn, located in the Greenwich Village neighborhood of Manhattan, New York City.

They are widely considered to constitute the single most important event leading to the gay liberation movement and the modern fight for LGBT rights in the United States.
