  1. This was years before I came out but can you imagine how safe these people must have felt being part of a large group? And how for the first time many of these people felt that there was more than just a few gay people? It is one thing for a young person today to feel isolated and alone but can you imagine what it must have been like to be in your 20’s or older and feel isolated and alone? Today’s youth have so much to be grateful to these people for. You are right Will. We must never forget.

    I was there that day. It was a bare bones march of gay men and women and supporters making a political and moral statement. It was moving and exhilarating.
