The Story

50 years ago, this June 28th, some very brave people stepped forward, fought back, and said no more.  On this night, June 22nd, 2019, we will celebrate this resistance.  On this night, we Cross the Line just like our foreperson, Stormé DeLarverie, did when she engaged the authorities with her words and her body at the Stonewall Inn.  On this night, we will use our bodies to dance, and celebrate, and touch, and shout, and be the out and proud people that our foreparents made possible for us.

This night is called Afterglow.  Why? 

Because we are living in the embers of the fire that was started with the Riots on that Saturday Night in 1969. 

Because the red neon lights of the Stonewall Inn burn just as brightly today as they did 50 years ago.  

Because the fire must continue to burn. We still have a lot of work to do to move the needle further for everyone in our community. 

Because it is time to get sweaty and dance our asses off!

And for those of you who have no idea what I am talking about take a look at this video about our shared queer history, and subscribe to his channel!
