  • @juliusbarnyc, the oldest queer bar in NYC, is at risk of going under! We’ve been doing our monthly #MattachineParty there for 12 years. See link in bio to help owner #helenbuford.  I will be selling signed @hedwigonbway photos to help. More on that soon.  Repost from @antonycherrienyc

On April 21, 1966, members of the Mattachine Society, an early gay rights group, organized what became known as the “Sip-In.” Their intent was to challenge New York State Liquor Authority (SLA) regulations that were promulgated so that bars could not serve drinks to known or suspected gay men or lesbians, since their presence was considered de facto disorderly. The SLA regulations were one of the primary governmental mechanisms of oppression against the gay community because they precluded the right to free assembly. This was particularly important because bars were one of the few places where gay people could meet each other. The Sip-In was part of a larger campaign by more radical members of the Mattachine Society to clarify laws and rules that inhibited the running of gay bars as legitimate, non-mob establishments and to stop the harassment of gay bar patrons.

I had the pleasure of meeting Dick Leitsch one of the members of the historical sip in he did his part and now we should do ours.

Keep this bar open.

  • #aimeestephens who passed on May 12 won a Supreme Court decision for her fellow  trans siblings when it was ruled her firing from a funeral home for her transition was discriminatory under the 1964 civil rights act. Shocking that this court did the right thing. Her surviving wife Donna needs our love. See link in bio to help with trans justice at @tgijustice. We’re selling #hedwigandtheangryinch foam wigs for this org at @junctioncitymercantile and we’ve already raised $1600 in 2 days!
