It's the 40th Anniversary of the Stonewall Riots. I would've completely forgotten this if I hadn't been listening to a recording of an interview with Noel Coward and Judy Garland, whose nearby funeral was supposedly a big reason the Stonewall Inn was so crowded that night.

Anyway, it's pretty amazing how things have progressed with the gay rights movement. Of course, there are still many strides to take, but it's still as good a time as any to stop and look around for a minute and ponder on how in a lot of ways, things are moving in the right direction on this fucked up rock we call home.
