"It is true that in this time people set their faces hard for photographs … The women seem suspended in a state somewhere between melancholy and fury and are surrounded by old men in strange beards that look as if someone had dabbed glue at random points on their faces, then hurled buckets of white hair in their direction."

— Thunderstruck, Erik Larson

Stonewall Riots, June 28, 1969 (and following days)

What I can’t think stop thinking about is how brave it was to be part of this movement, because — on top of all the other brave things — they were outing themselves to the police and the media and maybe their families at a time when it was even more frightening to be out.

Also, struck by the fact that I’ve never seen these photos before. This is a part of the American civil rights movement that we didn’t study in school.

‘Tis the reason for the season.

It never occurred to me that there was a reason that Pride tended to fall around the same time - but varied a bit from place to place. It wasn’t until I read the Stonewall Riots history that I actually got why.  History isn’t always old.

Just only 13 years old, Zev (Fiddle Oak) creates a fantasy dreamland through his photographs. His camera is named Betsy. Zev’s sister and assistant Nellie is 17. They enjoy working and creating together. The magic of Fiddle Oak cannot be described in words; no word that already exists can accurately sum up the extreme talent and wonder of Zev and Nellie.
