For the full story you can go to JoeMyGod here, but above is the original newspaper article about the Stonewall riots and the ongoing hostility of the police to the gay community back then. The article is homophobic and entirely making fun of gays, particularly concentrating throughout the story on drag queens. I guess that's how they viewed gays back then, as girlie men.

We owe so much today to those that have come before us and fought against such prejudice and bigotry.
