June 29,
The 40th anniversary of the Stonewall riots and for the fist time it seems like it is a national observance, with the mainstream mega media press paying attention to this as it relates to where we are today regarding legislation of gay civil rights laws. The mood of the country has moved past the legislation. A majority of people feel that gays should be able to serve openly in the military for instance. So the government is hedging its bets to move forward by lock-stepping into homophobic myths entrenched in the national fabric. Those myths are smashed every day by gays living openly just as they were smashed when the Stonewall girls smashed the windows of hate 40years ago.
