ANNIVERSARY OF STONEWALL READING, TODAY AT DOWNTOWN ATLANTA LIBRARY!!

ANNIVERSARY OF STONEWALL READING, TODAY AT DOWNTOWN ATLANTA LIBRARY!!
I am honored to get to read alongside other LGBTQ writers, poets, activists, at a memorial reading for the 40th Anniversary of the Stonewall uprising, in 1969, in New York City.
As LGBTQ, we are still fighting for civil and legal rights(are you listening, California??) but taking time to remember those who got us where we are today, is a worthwhile thing, a thing we must do, not only to honor those who scarificed, but to move forward--in strength, confidence, and yes--even in joy!
For all the great details on this event, hit the following link to Collin Kelley's blog,

Remember, the reading is today, Saturday, June 27th. It begins at 10:00 A.M., and runs until 4:00 P.M.
I'm scheduled during the noon hour, but I'm getting there early to catch some of the early readers, and plan to be there awhile. It should be a swell afternoon of reading and remembering.

Peace, kids.

Great Lisa have fun. I am afraid that fight will go on as long as we do.

I hope you guys are successful and the reading goes great. Knowledge and imagery are a great way to get people to understand.
