Police raid Stonewall Inn, 01:20 am EDT, June 28, 1969 (10:20 PM June 27 PDT)

Not the first times trans folks fought back (that was the Compton's Cafeteria Riot). But the first time it really stuck.

And yes, it was trans folks, and POC at that that did much of the fighting over then days that followed.

Here's some more info on what was going on before Stonewall:

I'm reading a short story titled "Prep School", only when I glanced up at the open tabs after checking something else I misread it as "Perp School". Now *there'd* be an unusual story.

Which reminds me of an idea that came out of an IM conversation a few years back. I forget what exactly sparked the train of thought, but it may have been a combo of talking about alternate realities that had more reasonable attitudes about sex and other things, and some item about sex ed classes.

Anyway, what came out of it was the idea of a world where "sex worker" was not only legal, but there was a Voc Tech track for it in school. Sort of like shop and Home Ec.

Which lead to "How did you manage to get an F in Intro to Sex??!!"

Whether it's a parent or a fellow student that definitely is going to lead to some *odd* questions and discussions. :-)

And just think of the classes for that track. As well as just what might be *in* those classes. And then there are the electives...
