Where it began

I was but a young boy when people like me lived in the shadows.

Stonewall Inn New York NY circa 1969

Thanks to a few courageous souls who had had enough, I’d never really fully know that life they were forced into.


Coming in September

The base story is true, the movie embellished and charachters portrayed not necessarily exactly the ones responsible. Yes… Hollywood producers need the box office, however the story needs to be told and remembered. It was the ones actually there at Stonewall we can thank for where we are today. Stonewall jump-started the movement.

I wish to thank those  who rioted, as well as those who walked through the times after the riot.
