Stonewall Riots

The Stonewall Riots were a series of spontaneous, violent demonstrations against a police raid that took place in the early morning hours of June 28, 1969 at the Stonewall Inn, in the Greenwich Village neighborhood of New York City. They are frequently cited as the first instance in American history when gays and lesbians fought back against a government-sponsored system that persecuted homosexuals, and they have become the defining event that marked the start of the gay rights movement in the United States and around the world.

Sunday June 26, 2011 in NYC

It was a perfect day for Gay Pride festivities around town. I'm happy to see gay marriage legal in NY but have to wonder about the duality of life and the issues that go along with marriage. Just as in the straight world, living together means one thing and marriage another. Will divorce lawyers who make a fortune in the straight world, soon have a new revenue stream? It's all part of the games of humanity trying to figure out how to survive here with some degree of balance.
