The other day I was sitting around a table with women my age and the topic of the Stonewall Riots came and one the of the women said it was the beginning of the Gay revolution (I could have commented on several areas of that statement like it wasn’t a “riot” it was an “uprising” or that there were many other demonstrations around the country before Stonewall) and said that I didn’t like to label Stonewall as “Gay” but rather LGBT. A couple of the questioned why, they say nothing wrong with using “Gay” as in LGBT and my reply was it writes out of history all the lesbians and trans people who took part in the uprising.
After a discussion about it I think I brought them around to seeing why I prefer LGBT to “Gay.”
What do you think?
