With the Stonewall riots began the gay civil rights movement of this country.
In New York today thousands of people took to the streets to commemorate that day in a parade that stretched from Central Park to Greenwich Village and to the best of this writer's knowledge no one got beaten up because of sexual orientation. In fact, both Michael Bloomberg and David Patterson joined the parade. And get this! Michael Bloomberg said, "People have the right to love who they want, marry who they want." Of course we know that in almost every state in the wonderful country they do not have that right but it was nice of him to say it. His heart is in the right place. He likes abandoned dogs and homosexuals. With those values he has to be a pretty good guy.
Here's to civil liberty. May it soon long live for us all.
