On the 50th Anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising, A Simple Message

The President of Russia, Vladimir Putin, just made international news by saying, “Liberalism has become obsolete,” and the liberal order has pursued mindless multiculturalism. To the young people I know who think the fight is over, I gently remind them, history is a circle not a line.

And to those who have gone before me to live their lives as LBGTQ people, as well as to those who have fought, and continue to fight for us, in ways large and small, I would like to send a heartfelt thanks.

I couldn’t have done it without you, and I will honor your memory by continuing the fight.
