Happy Gay Pride Everyone!

Today marks the 35th Anniversary of the Stonewall Riot. (**Edited to include the link)

Let's raise the roof today, wherever we may be. Lift up a glass to our fallen brothers and sisters who have fought the good fight for us...we've come a long way and still have a ways to go.

Whether you are gay or straight or something in between, declare it today. Tell someone that you love them. Give someone a hug. Hold someone's hand.

Finally, if you haven't already, register to vote. And don't just register. Actually get out there and vote when the time comes!

For those of us who aren't as up on gay culture, can you provide a good link to the Stonewall Riots?

Ak, Wikipedia. When will I learn of your never-ending bounty?

Thanks. Doesn't seem like a terribly big riot, but I guess the fact that there was one was kind of landmark.

The Columbia University Stonewall Exhibit. I would also recommend the movie (though it's a fictionalization): Stonewall
