121 and 40

Written on: June 28th, 2009 by: in NewsReviews

During this last week, the Delaware legislature voted to amend State anti-discrimination laws to include gay and lesbian Delawareans for the first time. Shortly after the legislation was passed, Delaware Lt. Gov. Matt Denn published a touching blog post about the history of the decade-long attempt to pass this legislation.

June 28th also marks the 40th anniversary of the “Stonewall Riots” in New York City, one of the pivotal events in modern Gay and Lesbian history- the event that is credited with beginning the movement for liberation movement that has made events like the passing of S.B. 121 possible.
The Delaware Library Catalog has several books and movies about the event itself and more resources about the 20th Century gay liberation movement.
