The event today marking the Stonewall Revolution was sombre and quiet, for news that was received from across the frontier that the Supreme Court of the United States ruled in a ground-breaking and progressive manner for the first road and precedent on to social healthcare. However, let us report on today’s events from the Palaso d’Etato:
At 01:20 SLT, the Sôgmô saluted the State Flag of Sandus, the hour symbolic for the beginning of the Stonewall Revolution and the first uprising of the LGBTQ community in response to the NYPD’s homophobic and discriminatory policies.
After drinking his morning coffee, the Sôgmô prepared for the day’s celebrations by personally baking small blueberry pies, which were the shared with neighbours and residents of le Palaso d’Etato, from 09:00 to 13:00 SLT. In an act of community indicative of the measure of today’s historic meaning, the Sôgmô presented these pies to foreign neighbours and to Kremlum Sandum Residents in the afternoon and evening of the day, a move which received kind gestures all around for the hard work dedicated to the State Day of Recognition of the Stonewall Revolution.
In the evening, further community was shared with a celebration of the historic meaning for the past 43 years for the LGBTQ community in North America and for the social progress as a result of the American Supreme Court’s ruling. As a result of today’s day of recognition events, State business was not hindered in matters of foreign affairs and work was started on the edict establishing Tax Titles. Work shall continue over the next few hours to reaccomplish the past hours lost as a result of kind celebration and State business shall continue to advance the State and fulfill this week’s policy projection goals. This government shall take all necessary steps in order to ensure the business of today’s goals will be met in accordance with tradition and the law.
With the celebration of the first Pride Week, a week of State recognition — a holiday in which work is still to be accomplished — has been spent in order to express Sandus’ true and faithful support to the expansion of LGBTQ rights and recognition the world around. As a result of some of the survey results coming in from the Relations with Sandus project, it is clear that the State has an urgent need in becoming more vocal in its support for the LGBTQ community: a support that has been expressed this week by the news the Sôgmô has sent in news of bigotry against members of the LGBTQ community, by the dressing of Sandus and its Facebook page in rainbow colours, and by the out-pouring support from the State for matters of LGBTQ importance.
Happy 43 Years of Progress for the LGBTQ community as a result of the Stonewall Revolution!
May the importance of this event and the on-going Gay Liberation Movement be expressed by the benevolence of the State of Sandus!
