Stonewall Goodbye?

I just read in UK's pink news that the Stonewall Bar in New York is apparantly closing. Maybe unknown to many young gays and dykes this is one of the very few historic places we have and one of the most important ones! Actually it should be landmarked and preserved by the City of New York - or at least sponsered by the rich and famous GLBTs over 40... It might not be a trendy place folks, but if it weren't for this bar and the brave women and men back in 1969 we sure wouldn't live the life many of us are living today.

A photo I took two years ago - I hope it isn't the last.

It's a shame. And I haven't even been to New York. And I never saw the Berlin wall. I guess I'm one of the "ewig zu sp├Ąt kommenden"...
