ENDURING LEGACY

It is so comforting to hear this voice associated to the topic that President Obama is speaking about.

The tone, the sense of protection, the equanimity, the strength.

All that we need to go on. 

We must stand tall.

There’s no going back.

We will do so to honor those who came before us, for our generation and for the younger generation coming up.

We will do so also in gratitude to this amazing ally, President Obama!

Millions around the world took part in parades and marches in honor of National LGBTQ Pride Month, but these celebrations may not have been possible if not for a group of LGBTQ activists who 48 years ago stood up in a local New York bar and fought back against hate.

On June 28, 1969, when New York City police began again harassing LGBTQ patrons of the Stonewall Inn simply for congregating, those patrons decided they’d had enough. They began bravely fighting back against the consistent oppression and brutal intimidation they faced. From those early demonstrations grew a modern social movement determined to rid the nation of discrimination against all LGBTQ Americans.

Exactly one year later, the first Pride marches took place in New York, Chicago and Los Angeles to commemorate the anniversary of the historic stand against injustice at Stonewall.

The significance of the events at Stonewall, and their influence in shaping the national conversation surrounding LGBTQ equality in America, cannot be overstated. Last summer, then-President Obama acknowledged the historic contributions of the events of 1969 by designating the Stonewall Inn as the country’s first LGBTQ national monument, a place essential to telling the story of the LGBTQ community’s struggle for equality.

“We can’t rest, we gotta keep pushing for equality and acceptance and tolerance, but the arc of our history is clear,” said Obama.

“It’s an arc of progress and a lot of that progress can be traced back to Stonewall.”

The LGBTQ community hailed Obama’s announcement, which recognized what many consider the birthplace of the LGBTQ movement, providing a public acknowledgement of Stonewall’s much-deserved place in history.

Though Stonewall’s legacy is cemented in history, LGBTQ progress remains on shaky ground in the Drumpf Era

HRC takes inspiration from the brave members of our community who stood up for themselves – and all of us – at Stonewall, and remains committed to ensuring all people, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity, are treated equality and with dignity under the law.

~~Announcing the Stonewall National Monument~~

~~Published on Jun 24, 2016~~

“I’m designating the Stonewall National Monument as the newest addition to America’s national parks system.

Stonewall will be our first national monument to tell the story of the struggle for LGBT rights. I believe our national parks should reflect the full story of our country – the richness and diversity and uniquely American spirit that has always defined us. That we are stronger together. That out of many, we are one.”

~President Barack Obama~

On June 24, 2016 President Obama designated the site of the Stonewall uprising and birthplace of the modern LGBT civil rights movement the “Stonewall National Monument.”

This new monument is a testament to the diversity, inclusiveness, and individual freedom that make America great.

Gay Pride or LGBT Pride is the positive stance against discrimination and violence toward lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people to promote their self-affirmation, dignity, equality rights, increase their visibility as a social group, build community, and celebrate sexual diversity and gender variance.

Pride, as opposed to shame and social stigma, is the predominant outlook that bolsters most LGBT rights movements throughout the world.

In a world where some people still try to silence LGBTQ+ voices, the act of being yourself is an act of bravery for all to see. And in the context of a global climate that highlights the vulnerability of LGBTQ+ rights. It’s more important than ever that LGBTQ+ voices and stories are shared and heard.

An inclusive, vibrant, ever-expanding LGBTQ+ community has been a vital part of YouTube since we started. And we’re proud to stand with a group that believes every human being deserves the right to be who they are and love who they love.

So to all those brave voices who continue to make Youtube the colorful, diverse and supportive place it is, we’re #ProudToBe with you.

APPEASEMENT

“Let the country burn now rather than turn the fire out now!”

~DEFINITION~

To make concessions to (someone, such as an aggressor or a critic) often at the sacrifice of principles

Synonyms
conciliation, placation, concession, pacification, propitiation, reconciliation; fence-mending

~Wikipedia~

BLineGFireBLine

There’s no reason to continue on the bandwagon of appeasing this ‘little, orange man-child‘.

It’s time to stand up and call things are they are.

No more alternate facts, no more alternate universe.

The emperor is indeed naked and we all see it. 

The nation, Republican legislators, the sycophantic base, the elected Democrats, the media and some others may be added.

There are secondary gains for those who hold this position. The country is burning and they are waiting for a better position down the road.

“Resist … because these people are not going to do it for you!”

Medicaid isn’t about politics, it’s about lives
Mike Phillips is severely physically disabled, but thanks to Medicaid, he’s able to be cared for at home by his family.

In a remarkable interview with Ari Melber, Mike and his mother Karen Clay explain how Medicaid cuts would literally end life as they know it.

During June 23rd’s broadcast of MSNBC’s The Last Word, guest host Ari Melber spoke to Mike Phillips and his mother, Karen Clay.

Phillips lives with spinal muscular atrophy and Clay is his full-time caregiver. Melber spoke with the two because Phillips stands to lose Medicaid benefits if the proposed Senate health care bill is passed.
