June 28, 2009 marks the 40th Anniversary of the riots at Stonewall Inn in Greenwich Village, New York. In the beginning, there were only a handful of men and women that took to the streets after becoming victims of another police raid. They were the spark that lit the fire and changed gay forever. As more and more people joined their movement, laws in the U.S. started changing. The struggle has been long and hard, but because of these men and women, life is a little easier for my generation.
