Stonewall Pride Parade: Dishonest History
Posted in the Columbus Forum

Alot of people have heared of the Stonewall Riots of the 60's, and know it by reputation. But few dig down and learn about what truly happened. The true story, I'm afraid, is miles apart from the noble narrative it was made out to be.
The Stonewall inn was under fire because of the underage male drag queens being prostituted there. And secondly, the owner of the establishment was constantly cheating on his taxes and other fees owed to the city. With all this corruption in place, it's days were numbered before the inevitable raid.
Gays rewrote what happened into a cause celebe - a useful narrative to vindicate them. Because when the raid finally happened, a bunch of intoxicated drag queens, they themselves not truly understanding the reason for the raid, began to violently resist the officers.
So you see, the Stonewall Riots were not a noble landmark where gays stood up for themselves in the face of peopel tormenting them for their sexuality, no. They stood up to cops, allright, who were there on a completely separate reason. End of story. End of noble, distorted rewrite of history.
