The Homos Will Close Down the New York Stock Exchange This Afternoon


Ring My Bell-el-el, Ring Me Bell, Ding Dong! If you’re in the New York City area today, you can hit up the New York Stock Exchange on Wall Street, where gays will be ringing the closing bell and having themselves a party in honor of gay pride and Stonewall’s 40th anniversary. From the release: “From Stonewall to Federal Hall” (get it?) welcomes you to “the ringing of the NYSE Closing Bell by the NGLCC, a symposium discussion on the LGBT movement in the 40 years since Stonewall followed by an exclusive cocktail reception on the NYSE Trading Floor.” All the A-gays will be there!

(And yes, we’re aware that’s New Kids on the Block in the photo, which seemed appropriate.)
