Stonewall Riots Remembered

Yesterday in Times Square on the TKTS stairs some folks did a photo “recreation” of the Stonewall Riots, this weekend being the 40th Anniversary.  Participants included Gavin Creel and other cast members from HAIR, sexy chorus boys dressed as sailors, and dancers/voguers from the Federation of Ballroom Houses, who will be featured in this Saturday’s LOVE BALL – the official opening night party of NYC’s Gay Pride –  at the Nokia Theater, Times Square . 

Hippies, drag queens and white boys were all present at the Stonewall Bar the night of the police raid, which ignited the riots.  Remembering the continued need to fight for equal civil rights and marriage equality, performers re-staged this protest in Times Square in an effort to draw attention to this ongoing battle.
