"Queer Day "
It's the year 41 after Stonewall,..I think.
Let's see the Queer Revolution has devolved into a cute safe reformist movement full of calm liberals, and republicans. Actually more republicans than I ever imagined. This judging by the number of far rightwing politicians getting caught in airport shit houses with their pants down.
What the hell this is the fate of all radical movements that make any progress. The get absorbed by the mainstream. All the stuff that made them interesting, and dangerous is chopped off.
Being a serious pervert I got chopped off.
So Stonewall day means nothing to me, and hasn't for decades. I mean what with homophiles joining with assorted moralists to put my sort in jail where we'd get a shiv in our kidney before dark on the first day.
I feel like Tom Paine must have when he at last realized that the American Revolution wasn't what he thought it was. The land still belonged to the gentry, and the slaves were still in chains.
Still a party's a party. Like the Saint Patrick Day Parade which was also once a radical act. The Gay,..nolonger Queer, Pride Day March is still worth a song, and a drink.
Harry Hay is 'still' my Hero. He 'never' betrayed or abandoned the faith.
