Pride month is coming to an end, this year pride was different, it wasn't filled with the parades, parties, fun events and rainbow consumerism that makes boomers shake in their boots,this year pride came back it's roots. On June 28th 1969, Marsha P. Johnson a black trans woman threw the first brick that started the Stonewall riots. Pride was a riot against police brutality, led by BIPOC queers and allies. In 1969 we marched holding banners and signs which proclaimed our freedom, in the following years we marched in drag, holding flags and voguing, in 2020 we marched with our signs once more. We marched for the most vulnerable members of our community who have time and time again fought for us.
