by 40th Anniversary of the Stonewall Riots

Today I’m going to be out celebrating LGBT Pride in New York with some friends. If it weren’t for the people who stood up for themselves 40 years ago today at Stonewall Inn, I likely wouldn’t have much to celebrate. To all the Stonewall Veterans and anyone who fought for our rights before me…thank you.

And here and here are two IFD stories that involve Pride and its meaning. Have a safe, fun and happy Pride, everyone.
