So I spent three days struggling with a post before deciding that it wasn’t worth publishing at all. Instead I shall give you a much better post, about an important event that is well-written and informative and is really just one of those things everyone should read.
(Also, in celebration of Pride month, she (the owner of the blog, Engie/Nevillegirl/Dark Lord of the Seven Kingdoms), has been posting consistently about LGBTQ+ themes every single day this month, and if you’re interested in that you should probably give her blog the ol’ look-and-see. She could also shoot fire out of her mouth, so that’s pretty cool.)
OH MY GOD, YOU GUYS. I AM SOOOOOO EXCITED TO WRITE THIS POST. I HAVE BEEN LOOKING FORWARD TO IT FOR LIKE THE WHOLE ENTIRE MONTH AND NOW I FINALLY GET TO PUBLISH IT.
…sorry, I get a little overenthusiastic about history. Today I’m going to talk about Stonewall! If you only ever learn about one event from LGBTQ+ history, let it be Stonewall. I mean, hopefully you’d learn more than that, but if your mind is absolutely CRAMMED full of information and you can only fit one more thing in there or else your brain will dribble out your ears? Then just remember Stonewall.
The Stonewall riots took place on June 28, 1969 – forty-six years ago today. They occurred in response to a police raid on the Stonewall Inn in New York City. The Stonewall was a bar and, at that time, the largest queer establishment in the United States.
