In honor of Pride, today I’m re-posting a drawing I made at The Stonewall Inn, in downtown New York City. The drawing was made at a vigil held for the victims of the Pulse nightclub shooting in 2016. (See original post HERE)
I post it today not to bring up those painful memories, but to highlight the role that the iconic role the Stonewall plays as a symbol for the LGBTQIA community. It’s said that here was where the gay rights movement was born.
Due to the months-long lockdown in New York City, this iconic bar is in danger of closing. In my opinion, a place that holds so much meaning for so many people should not be allowed to close down.

Happy Pride 2020!
