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.

IN A PUERTO RICO STATE OF MIND

My country is always on my mind. Y

ou can take a Puerto Rican out of the Island but you can’t take the Island out of a Puerto Rican.

This is a view of one of the old Spanish forts in the Old San Juan are.

The sun, the ocean, the breeze, the sky, the clouds.

That’s how strong being Puerto Rican is.

LONGEST DAY, SHORTEST NIGHT

Summer solstice 2017 in Northern Hemisphere was at 12:24 AM on Wednesday, June 21, 2017
All times are in Eastern Time.

~SUMMER SOLSTICE~

The summer solstice (or estival solstice), also known as midsummer, occurs when a planet’s rotational axis, or geographic pole on either its northern or its southern hemisphere, is most inclined toward the star that it orbits.

On the summer solstice, Earth’s maximum axial tilt toward the Sun is 23.44°. This happens twice each year (once in each hemisphere), when the Sun reaches its highest position in the sky as seen from the north or south pole.

WEPA WOMAN

WEPA

A word of jubilation that is uttered by mainly Hispanics, especially within the Puerto Rican community. It normally is yelled at high volumes in a nasal manner, especially after something that is celebrated.

“Wepa” normally means, “All right! Good job! Congratulations! Yeah!”

~SOURCE~

Combine ‘WEPA’ with woman and you have the epitome of a Puerto Rican female.

‘Then God said let there be smart, sexy beautiful and bossy women so he made Puerto Rican women.”

 I HAVE NO RECOLLECTION

THE KEEBLER ELF

I didn’t watch live. I just couldn’t.

Even watching last night, listening to the clips and the pundits explanations, made my stomach lurch, my chest tight and my sense of integrity smirk.

Another shameless episode in all this mess!

By Tom LoBianco, CNN

1. Sessions shut the door on Kislyak, then he re-opened it

2. Sessions’ recusal started almost immediately, and left him blind on Russia’s hacking

3. Sessions did a strong job protecting Trump, and himself

4. Senate Republicans lined up more with Trump for this hearing

5. Senate investigators aren’t done with Sessions yet
