I'm Matt. I'm from Massachusetts. I'm 21, a writer, artist, talker, listener, joker, smoker, midnight toker, gay, movie lover, friend, brother, son, grandson, nephew. I have big ideas and goals for myself, and soon they'll come true.
Maryland. Our motto is thank you, you pieces of shit.
Good job SC for at least being polite.
southern hospitality y’all. Bless y’all’s hearts.
AS SOMEONE WHO HAS BEEN BORN AND RAISED IN MASSACHUSETTS, I CAN FUCKING TELL YOU WE SWEAR, A LOT. MY DAD WHEN HE’S PISSED, HIS FAVORITE THING TO SAY IS “YOU MOTHERLESS CUNT!” OR “FUCKING WHORE!” AND MY MOM’S FIANCE, HE SAYS FUCK AFTER LITERALLY EVERY OTHER WORD, AND MY MOM AND GRANDMOTHER AND SISTER AND MYSELF FUCKING SWEAR UP A STORM TOO.
Okay so we all know about the Stonewall Riots in 1969, right? (if you don’t you should research it, as it was the turning point in the gay community where a gay bar was raided by the police and the people inside had decided they had been abused enough and fought back). The riots started June 28th, 1969.
Judy Garland, who is famously known as Dorothy from The Wizard Of Oz, was and still is an extremely high regarded gay icon, and she died June 22, 1969, and her remains were taken to New York City on the 27th for her funeral, and for the public to view and mourn.
NOW, you may be wondering why I mentioned the Stonewall Riots and Judy Garland in the same post, here’s why: it has been suggested that those who were in Stonewall at the time the fighting broke out were mourners of Judy Garland, who came to the bar to drink mourn over their lost actress, and when the police came in and tried arresting people, the patrons weren’t having it. So, with all that said, it’s been hinted that Judy Garland’s death had influenced the riot; one of the people who was there even went as far as to say, “I guess Judy Garland’s death just really helped us really hit the fan.”
