Sorry...I'm a day late...but better late than never...  
June 27, 1969



The Stonewall Riots were a turning point in the struggle for homosexual equality. Yet the brutal 1998 murder of 21-year-old U.S. student Matthew Shepard, and the British government's unwillingness to implement promised reform, indicate how far there is to go. Lionel Wright assesses the role Stonewall played in shaping the modern lesbian, gay, and bisexual movements.

There's a bit of hope out there. Tonight, Bill C-38, federal legislation extending civil marriage rights to same-sex couples, goes to final reading and vote in Ottawa. It is expected to pass.
