A Month of BLTs

image

In order to remain current with the schedule of US Government sponsored exaltations, we formally announce June as Bisexual, Lesbian, and Transvestite month. Here is the official proclamation.

BLT Pride Month is currently celebrated each year in the month of June to honor the 1969 Stonewall riots in Manhattan. The Stonewall riots were a tipping point for the Gay Liberation Movement in the United States. In the United States the last Sunday in June was initially celebrated as “Gay Pride Day,” but the actual day was flexible. In major cities across the nation the “day” soon grew to encompass a month-long series of events. Today, celebrations include pride parades, picnics, parties, workshops, symposia and concerts, and BLT Pride Month events attract millions of participants around the world. Memorials are held during this month for those members of the community who have been lost to hate crimes or HIV/AIDS. The purpose of the commemorative month is to recognize the impact that lesbian, bisexual and transcriptease patients have had on history locally, nationally, and internationally.

So you see this is a month in which the USG honors…ummm…riots? Well yes. And by that standard we are going to require several more open slots for the many honorable conflagrations that are future faits accomplis in this Petri dish.

But what made these particular riots so outstanding in comparison to more hoi polloi efforts? Were there more deaths? More maiming? More destruction? Here’s the Wiki capsule:

The Stonewall riots were a series of spontaneous, violent demonstrations by members of the gay community against a police raid that took place in the early morning hours of June 28, 1969, at the Stonewall Inn in the Greenwich Village neighborhood of New York City.

Very few establishments welcomed openly gay people in the 1950s and 1960s. Those that did were often bars, although bar owners and managers were rarely gay. At the time, the Stonewall Inn was owned by the Mafia. It catered to an assortment of patrons and was known to be popular among the poorest and most marginalized people in the gay community: drag queens, representatives of a newly self-aware transgender community, effeminate young men, male prostitutes, and homeless youth. Police raids on gay bars were routine in the 1960s, but officers quickly lost control of the situation at the Stonewall Inn. They attracted a crowd that was incited to riot. Tensions between New York City police and gay residents of Greenwich Village erupted into more protests the next evening, and again several nights later. Within weeks, Village residents quickly organized into activist groups to concentrate efforts on establishing places for gays and lesbians to be open about their sexual orientation without fear of being arrested.

Well I do hope they’re now able to at least walk out-of-doors without being accosted by magistrates. I mean that’s just decent society. Here are some decent examples…

Hey, I recognize those guys! But more importantly, I recognize the impact of publicly prancing BLTs on the social fabric of this country.

And while this month is explicitly dedicated to the bisexual, lesbian, and transvestite, in America…every month is gay.

  1. On the one hand, you have BLT Month, Harvey Milk stamps and – probably soon – the BLT equivalent of MLK Day. One the other hand, you have governments being pressured into making public holidays of days sacred to Muslims. Why do I get the feeling this isn’t going to end well?

    • Muslim chickens are already coming home to roost for some. That attack was deprived of media attention by its coinciding with the Elliot Rodger spree in California. Though if the perpetrator really was French, as he’s being described, you can be sure Rodger’s attack would soon be demoted to second billing in MSM.

  2. I always thought the gays have it made. The world is their playground, at least the progressive portions thereof.

  3. I saw BLT, and thought ohh yes, that is sandwich, maybe he some super BLT recipe!🙂 .

    Alas, it was not that. The photos are frightening. Lord have mercy.

    I believe homosexuality to be wrong, but when they have no consideration for others and wear this in public, it is even more wrong.

    • I am sorry to rant and most so many comments. But really, for homosexuals to go out like that and it be CELEBRATED is insane. The people are clearly mentally ill. And they need medical help, not applause.

      If a heterosexual goes into street like that, they will likely be thought to be insane, or arrested. It is goes to show how crazy the world is becoming, that this type of thing is championed any one who opposes is it is deemed intolerant or discriminative. To celebrate insanity with its own “month”.
