PHOTOS: Relive The 1969 Stonewall Riots In Comic Book Form

October is LGBT History Month and to celebrate, Queerty’s gaying up each day with our 31 Days of Queerstory.


PHOTOS: Artist Mike Funk renders the 1969 Stonewall Uprising, the birth of the modern LGBT civil rights movement, in a comic book available on his Flickr. This isn’t the first time the riots have been given the comic treatment, with Blue Water Productions launching an Indiegogo campaign to fund their own earlier this year.

    It’s a nice comic book, but it won’t help you “relive” the Stonewall riots. That’s not possible any more, the world has changed too much. You’ll have to be content with a few simplified facts mixed with some imaginary stuff, surrounded by some seriously anachronistic beliefs and attitudes.

    I enjoyed it – but it’s a story for modern people, not a reliving of the past.

    When I was first out, a nice wise old queen grabbed me by the arm and asked did I know about the Stonewall riot. He faked shock when I said I never heard about it. I was barely 20. He pulled me on his lap like he was my grandma and started telling me the story. “Know your history young man”, he said to me before he sent me on my way while grabbing my ass.
