Time Magazine's coverage of Stonewall Uprising in the Short List section, June 28, 2010

I suggest you reread your words used in reporting on the documentary Stonewall Uprising, unless you really understood their true meaning. You say it evokes the "Rosa Parks moment of the gay rights movement." That is more accurate than most people know, including most "gays." The black civil rights movement had been going on for years, and the event with Rosa Parks was the result of long preparation for that moment. That is true of Stonewall, since there has been a homosexual civil rights movement, now called a glbt movement, continually since 1950, and the same type incidents had happened earlier in several cities, but the lazy media just had not "discovered" such an event until it happened in their area.
