Stonewall: A Lesson From History

The Stonewall Riots began on the morning of June 28th 1969.

That was quite a long time ago, which means it's okay to celebrate it as an empty icon.

It's even fetishised now by those who would have condemned it at the time.

History allows people to laud past events we no longer have to take sides over - at least in any meaningful sense.
