He was the breaker of the enigma code in WW11 and driven to suicide…….or was me murdered…..when he was forced to undergo chemical castration because he was GAY.
On the day of the STONEWALL riot…………..Judy’s funeral was taking place several blocks away. Judy was worshiped by gays and female impersonators.
It was a night of GAY BASHING……word spread thru out the Village and gay bars emptied out into the streets around the STONEWALL.
Hundred of cops were ordered to the scene by the MAYOR Robert F.Wagner, jr.
Gays tried to help the TRANS who were being beaten and piled into paddy wagons………but were bashed and arrested. It was a night of horror.
NEW YORKERS are getting it in gear…..for the GAY PRIDE PARADE on Sunday……….down 5th Avenue to Greenwich Village.
150,000 people have registered to march in the Parade.
TWO MILLION spectators will line the parade route. Lots of cheering going on in support of the GAY community.
What is the best part of living in New York. It isn’t the Broadway Shows…..or the Met Opera…..or the NYC Ballet…..or the Museums….it is the PEOPLE.
Who are these people. What do they do. Where do they live? How do they live?
Imagining about their lives is endless fascination for me.
I LOVE NEW YORK.
GAY and PROUD…..the Pride March in NYC today. It is wonderful to be confident with who we are and proud of our bodies…and no shame in showing them off.
TWO MILLION spectators lined the route down 5th Avenue.
37,000 marchers joined the parade. It was exhilarating.
The streets of New York are packed with people who have descended on the city…….ready to march in the PRIDE parade on Sunday.
The parade will have 25,000 marchers and 200,000 spectators lining Fifth Avenue.
