    Thanks for posting this. I’ve been obsessed with remembering and restoring lgbt history, but this is a piece of our history that I had forgotten about.

    I was there the night it went off…I was standing exactly at the garbage can where it was hidden, then went around the corner to watch a Madonna video…and then two minutes later: “Pow!”…half the crowd ran into the street, and the other half stood there in a daze nursing their drinks…

      I was also there that night and I’ve been telling people about that night for years, but had never heard anymore about it. I was also standing about six feet from the trash can and I remember those moments being in slow motion – the smoke, the flash, debris falling, and then people running to get out. My roommate was one of those leaning against the bar nursing his drink in a daze.
