June 27th, 1969 - Enough is enough!
These celebrations have changed over the past 41 years since the Stonewall riots kick started the Gay Rights movement.
Canadians can be thankful for having equal legal rights which, it seems royally pisses off the homophobes as hate crimes against gays have increased nearly 20% since 2008.
There is still much to do before every LGBT person can hold hands in public, bring their boy (girlfriend) home to the parents or open a joint bank account without being self conscious or afraid for their safety.
As we mark the 41st anniversary of the Stonewall riots and the 40th anniversary of the first Gay Rights march,take a moment to think about your gay friends and family; send them a good thought and when you see them, give them a great big hug.
