The Legacy and the Future of Pride Month

"June twenty eighth nine thousand nine hundred sixty nine fifty two years ago. Police raided the stonewall in a gay bar and the uprising. That followed was led by trans activists. Marsha p johnson and sylvia rivera and it sparked a movement that has continued for decades marsha and sylvia like the trans vibe in lower manhattan at the time. It was real. They were taking up space at the stonewall inn and other places and that's why when the police raided they were like nana. You're not gonna quietest so. The first pride march in new york city was held on the one year anniversary of that uprising at stonewall similar marches went on in chicago san francisco los angeles but the history of that is rooted in resistance towards police violence over the last few years. It's like you know. Hey everybody is celebrating pride there you see. Cvs there you see comcast there you see. At and t. Putting out statements basically professing to be lgbtq allies but still giving money to politicians who are pushing anti lgbtq legislation and this is just three out of the twenty five companies that are actually pushing anti lgbtq federal state politicians. So as june comes to an end can do a little bit of a temperature. Check kinda how are you feeling at this moment in our. I'm wondering how are you thinking about this moment in going forward in two thousand twenty one post pandemic to put it singly. I think that aside from everything i think. That pride is as much about a recommitment to the unfinished business of nineteen. Sixty-nine as it is a celebration celebration has to be a part of any type of commemoration especially for people color. It's how we retain joy in the moments of difficulty but at the same time. I think that we have to recognize that. There's a lot of unfinished business. And specifically when it comes to the intersection of gender identity and race and economic opportunity all of those things that sylvia and marsha embodied in their life of the challenges in the hope that still remains very much on the table. And so i think that's what pride is every year and that's what i look to do with a recommitment

Throw the first Stone(wall)

"In the early hours of june twenty eighth nineteen sixty nine new york city police raided the greenwich village. Gay club called the stonewall inn. Let me set the scene for you. Gay clubs were much more than a place to get drunk or look for love in the nineteen sixties and frankly all the decades leading up to it. They were not exactly accepting of lgbt people. Being queer wasn't only societally unacceptable. It was against the law same sex relations between consenting adults or illegal in new york city in nineteen eighty and you could be arrested on the street for not wearing at least three articles of gender appropriate clothing now out on a limb here and say that men in skirts found themselves on the receiving end of that one a lot more often than women and slacks did understandably. Lgbt people flocked to gay bars and clubs refuges where they could socialize and more importantly be themselves openly. You still weren't safe there though. The new york city state liquor. Authority penalized and shutdown. Gay bars arguing. That the mir gathering of more than three homosexuals was technically disorderly. These regulations were overturned in nineteen sixty six thanks to the efforts of strident activists but things as simple as holding hands with someone of the same gender was still illegal so police harassment of gay bars continued. There was another player. In the game the mafia the mob saw profit to be had in catering to the displaced and disenfranchised gay clientele by the mid nineteen sixties. The genovese crime family controlled most of the gay bars in the village in nineteen sixty six. They purchased the stonewall inn which had been a bog standard bar and restaurant renovated it on the cheap and reopened it as a gay bar. Stonewall inn was registered as a private bottle bar which did not require a liquor licence because patrons were supposed to bring their own liquor club attendees had to sign their names in a book to maintain the club's membership facade. Police initially left the stonewall inn alone by dint of regular bribes from the jennifer easies patrons benefited by the fact that the police hassling the owners but it also meant that the owners could run the club as they saw fit which meant as cheaply as possible. The club lacked a fire exit. There was no running water behind the bar to wash the glasses. Though there was plenty of water in the drinks themselves and the less said about the bathrooms the better

And during this time gay people faced regular attacks and persecution. The police regularly raided the stonewall inn but this day. lgbtq people there had enough and fought back protests and violence continued for days afterwards capturing national attention. This event became a turning point and it's credited with launching the modern gay rights movement which still continues to this day as lgbtq fight for equality pride events like parades and street festivals are held all over the country and around the world.

acquire people this weekend for million are expected to make the pilgrimage for world pride netto n._p._r. news new york the stonewall riots fifty years ago sparked a wave of gay activism at a time when many l._g._b._t. people were afraid to show their faces publicly just over a decade after stonewall a plague would begin to wipe out gay men this was an a._b._c. news report from nineteen eighty two it's mysterious it's deadly and it's baffling medical science acquired immune deficiency syndrome as we mark the fiftieth anniversary of stonewall this week we're going to look now at how the activism of stonewall transformed into the fight against aids david france is an investigative journalist he created the book and documentary how to survive a plague welcome to the program thanks for having me to start with the big picture did stonewall change the mindset of gay people in a way that allowed them to publicly protest in the face of aids they might not have if stonewall hadn't happened what we learned from stonewall was that the community no longer felt comfortable being as isolated and disenfranchised as it had been the we had carved out these little pockets of semi-freedom and stonewall said that's not enough and all the organizations that grew from that time said you know we have a right to citizenship we have a right to kind of all the responsibilities but all the benefits of being human being an american and when aids hit what became really clear very early on was that we were being denied really basic fundamental things that sense of entitlement is what carried through when we started to realize that hospitals were routinely not taking aids patients that nobody in the public health firmament was doing anything effective in response to the disease so we started taking care of ourselves by creating organizations like games health crisis in the shanty project in san francisco that took on the caregiving challenges that the community needed let's talk about one specific group that sprang up to respond to aids act up new york which staged protests and actions like diane's that were deliberately intentionally in your face obviously the group act up was a response to aids but did you see that as an outgrowth of what had happened install people who were really on the frontlines of the formation of act up we're new generation six years into the nineteen eighty-seven there still was no medication online to treat the disease there was no public health response on the federal level or the academic level nobody was responding to this at all in this new generation of l._g._b._t. folks were outraged and that's what act up was active was a responsive outrage different cities responded in different ways to the democ how would you compare what happened in new york to san francisco the san francisco model of responding to really care based it was kind of a famille response to the disease people were can help ing ease as aids patients in to death in the most comfortable way possible the activism of anger and of politics was really an east coast response it was an effort finally to break down those walls around the ghettos that we had built and and to say that we are not going to be able to do this ourselves we've done so much else ourselves but we are not gonna find a cure to this mysterious retrovirus it so we started going to the doors of big pharma and the halls of scientific research in demanding action from the people who had the training in the background and really the the ethical obligation to respond and so when you take a step back and look at this arc from stonewall fifty years ago to aids activism what lessons do you take away for for today for twenty nineteen what we learned from aids activism is that really street action and st organizing can be incredibly effective that even the most disenfranchised populations and certainly the queer population was disenfranchised in the eighties as any other can seize power can find a way to make positive change to end the disenfranchisement and the fact of that being a possibility i think is really the lasting message from that time journalist and filmmaker david france thanks very much thanks Sorry. you're listening to w._n._y._c. coming up next it's marketplace cubicles route the.

for million are expected to make the pilgrimage for world pride netto maybe n._p._r. news new york the stonewall riots fifty years ago sparked a wave of gay activism at a time when many l._g._b._t. people were afraid to show their faces publicly just over a decade after stonewall a plague would begin to wipe out gay men this was an a._b._c. news report from nineteen eighty two it's mysterious it's deadly and it's baffling medical science acquired immune deficiency syndrome as we mark the fiftieth anniversary of stonewall this week we're going to look now at how the activism of stonewall transformed into the fight against aids david france is an investigative journalist he created the book and documentary how to survive a plague welcome to the program thanks for having me ari to start with a big picture did stonewall change the mindset of gay people in a way that allow them to publicly protest in the face of aids they might not have if stonewall hadn't happened what we learned from stone law was that the community no longer felt comfortable being as isolated and disenfranchised as it had been we had carved out these little pockets of semi-freedom and stonewall said that's not enough and all the organizations that grew from that time said you know we have a right to citizenship we have a right to kind of all the responsibilities but all the benefits of being human being an american and when aids hit what became really clear very early on was that we were being denied really basic fundamental things that sense of entitlement is what carried through when we started to realize that hospitals were routinely not taking aids patients that nobody in the public health firmament was doing anything effective in response to the disease so we started taking care of ourselves by creating organizations like gay men's health crisis and the shanti project in san francisco that took on the caregiving challenges that the community needed let's talk about one specific group that sprang up to respond to aids act up new york which staged protests and actions like diane's that were deliberately intentionally in your face obviously the group act up was a response to aids but did you see that as an outgrowth of what had happened in stonewall people who were really on the frontlines of the formation of act up we're a new generation six years into the dynamic nineteen eighty-seven there still was no medication online to treat the disease there was no public health response on the federal level or the academic level nobody was responding to this at all in this new generation of l._g._b._t. folks were outraged and that's what act up was active was a responsive outrage different cities responded in different ways to the pedantic how would you compare what happened in new york to san francisco the san francisco model of responding to the z's was really care based it was kind of a famille response to the disease people were helping ease as aids patients in to death in the most comfortable way possible the activism of anger and of politics was really an east coast response it was an effort finally to break down those walls around the ghettos that we had built and and to say that we are we are not going to be able to do this ourselves we've done so much else ourselves but we are not gonna find a cure to this mysterious retrovirus and so we started going to the doors of been pharma and the halls of scientific research and demanding action from the people who had the training in the background and really the the ethical obligation to respond and so when you take a step back and look at this arc from stonewall fifty years ago to aids activism what lessons do you take away for for today for twenty nineteen what we learned from aids activism is that really street action in st organizing can be incredibly effective that even the most disenfranchised populations and certainly the queer population was disenfranchised in the eighties as any other can seize power can find a way to make positive change to end the disenfranchisement and the fact of that being a possibility i think is really the lasting message from that time journalist and filmmaker david france thanks very much thanks This is NPR news. democratic candidates say america needs a health care overhaul but how will they do it a heartbreaking photo highlights the risks of a little known immigration policy and reporters spent years studying the sex lives of three american women desires one of the things we think about the most it's also our biggest secret all that.

50 years of Stonewall

"Fifty years ago this week patrons of the stonewall in a gay bar in New York's Greenwich Village stood up to police who had raided the venue since then the stonewall uprising has become the most storied event in the history of the LGBT, right struggle. But there's a history that has been and continues to be both under documented and overlooked. There isn't even a consensus on exactly what transpired on the evening of the uprising itself, I wanted to find out more about what forces have shaped the documentation of LGBT history to begin I paid a visit to pick Marcus at his home in Manhattan. My name is Eric Marcus. And I am the founder and host of the making gays repot cast. And we bring LGBTQ history to life to the voices of the people who lived it, and we draw much of material material from my archive of one hundred interviews that I recorded thirty years ago for an oral history book of the same name. I knew nothing about the movement before nineteen sixty nine I thought everything began stonewall. I discovered that was wasn't the case that I was really outraged. I thought why didn't I know this history to me? And so in most ways the most interesting part of our history is the history before stonewall, and I was able to find all of these people, mostly elderly, who had been there at the very beginning of the movement in the US, and I got to record their stories, my conception of LGBTQ history, changed dramatically that I spoke with people on there wasn't much written about it at the time I started my work, and so I had ideas about people, especially in the early movement that there was some how accommodation as so that all they wanted to do as simulate and it was the perspective of the people who wrote about it writing through the lens of the nineteen eighty s. What I didn't realize what the times were like and what people were up against early in the movement, and how courageous really radical, they were in their thinking that they that they imagined a world that could be different and slowly found a way I fit into the world. And then to begin changing it, and that to me made them radicals, even though some of a lot of the activists came along later looked at them and thought of them as less than and old fashioned that somehow there, what they did didn't matter very much, given the, the history of the movement goes back so far before stonewall. What do you think explains the editor of stonewall as a kind of watershed within algae, PT, Hugh history, stonewall uprising in stonewall was indeed a watershed of the movement? It was a turning point. But there were between fifty and sixty existing organizations in nineteen sixty nine there was a, a modest national movement. What stonewall did is it? Channeled or I should say the organizing that happened in the aftermath of stonewall based on the infrastructure that existed already channel, this new energy and anger into a much larger national movement. It, it inspired it triggered the gay liberation phase of what had been called the home afoul movement. So you went from fifty to sixty organizations in nineteen sixty nine to a year later, fifteen hundred organizations across the country, and then another year later twenty five hundred organizations thousands of young people at colleges and universities were brought into the movement. It was very young movement, and the people who are involved earlier were for the most part swept away some people continued on through the next days of the movement, and they brought their experience into this new phase of the movement. In fact, the first organizing meetings that were held right after stonewall were hosted by the Mattachine society, an organization founded in nineteen fifty in Los Angeles. And the daughters of leaders in organization for lesbians, founded in nineteen fifty five so it didn't. I thought that the movement sprang whole from the uprising of the stonewall inn, I didn't know, otherwise until I did my research and discovered that. It required. Concentration organizing in hard work to get from the stall uprising to the first pride March here in New York when you're later and then to this movement, that's now grown across the country and all over the world records of LGBT life have been shaped by the same divisions influence other histories, these include splits along sexual racial and generational lines. The lesbian her story archives are a historical repository run by lesbians for lesbians. I met Maxine Wolfe, one of the archives coordinate is in the Brooklyn brownstein. Whether kept most archives that call themselves LGBT are g and t they have practically no ill. Okay or be. So part of it is that we can't rely on other people to preserve our history. If you read most history books about the gay movement. A lot of what is in. There is about men and their movement, not what lesbians would doing at the same time, and even if they're lesbians in the organization, they don't get as much visibility. So this is about making sure that lesbians are at the center of that history. Also the way that we define it is very different than most archives. We define it as being as broad as possible we don't want to create an archive that's about only about famous lesbians, which most archives, they want material from well-known members of the community, and we have that, but we also value, the idea as Joan Nestle said that any lesbian at walks in here can see an image of herself which. Means that we have the papers of lesbian prostitutes, and go, go dancers, and truck drivers and secretaries as well as having papers of people like orgy Lord, or Audrey enrich, or other well-known, lesbians, would you mind showing me around? So on the first floor we put the things that most people who are not necessarily academic, researches would want to see novels autobiographies biographies. We also have literary criticism we have and Thala geez. We have poetry books. We have poetry anthologies, my favorite thing on this floor, though is we have books from other countries. And one of my favorite books is this, which was may? It's, it's called a Dikshit airy and it's handmade by a group of Japanese lesbians who brought it here, and it has phrases in English, and then Japanese, and then Japanese and English, and you can see it's all handmade. So it has things like are you monogamous? Women's take back the night it has a Butch on the streets in between the sheets. This is all an English. And then in Japanese this, reflects the way that I think, so many lesbians feel about wanting to make sure that people remember us. And that's what this archive is about the most touching thing that happens here is to see somebody come in and see something that they were part of some lesbian will walk through the door from some other state and, you know, an older woman who will say, you know, I was part of this poetry, collective in one thousand nine hundred seventy five and I bet you know, we did this book but you probably don't have it. And then I'll say, well, let's look, and then we look and we find it and people cry, you know, women cry when they come in here and see a couple of things not just something that's there's, but a place that respect. Who they are a place that is beautiful, and that is put together and that cares about who they are. And that's very important to me. And I think to everybody who is at the archives today, LGBT history is documented move freely in extensively even ever before. But as the wheel celebrates pride this month, we would do well to remember the people whose lives anti, we're not giving the attention. They deserved for multiple twenty four in New York on Henry Sheridan.

"No, I wasn't involved into Mattachine society at all. But I was gay. I came out in college and. You know. Even then, you know, I walk I railed against the Bush fan dichotomy that, you know, that you could be lesbian, and you could wear dresses. You know, you know in high cops and I used to actually walk with a little star mustache. That's. Many, you know, fascism in any level, you know, even you know, feminist fascist fashioned fascist, you know, they I'm gonna let you go Pamela. But thank you so much for that memory Lillian. Pamelas. I am so happy. She brought Bill at six up because his as early as nineteen seventy four absent, who was in congress tried to get an equality act, which would mean that, that lesbian and gay people, we recall in would be a protected group, just as ethnic minorities, and religious minorities. And women were at that time, we still don't have an equality at trying to get it passed yet again. But they'll absolutely had the foresight in nineteen seventy four and again in nineteen seventy five to try to do that for us. So she was one of our first, public allies, and she really deserves to be remembered. So thank you, Pamela furr that memory. I'm talking to historian, little Lillian fater, men and Eric markets, creator of the making gay history podcast about the village and the stonewall uprising back in nineteen sixty nine which was just a few blocks from where I'm sitting now and we are taking your calls as well. We want to hear your memories of that time. Give us a call at eight four four seven four five talk, that's eight four four seven four five eight to five five. Let's turn to that night itself. Now are, are really early Saturday morning, June twenty eighth nineteen sixty nine. Tell us what stonewall was like, then it's so interesting interviewing people about stone will as thirty years ago for my original oral history book, because each person has a different take on it. And recent podcast episode, we intercut tape from people who talked about what they thought of stone will was a refuge, a dive dump that the glasses were thirty so the, the stonewall bar that, that is there now. Is not the bar that was there in nineteen sixty nine that bar occupied twice the space of the current stonewall, and it was in a space that was once a restaurant called Bonnie's stonewall inn and bonus in burned in the mid sixties, and it was reopened as the stonewall inn bar in nineteen sixty seven they slap some black paint on the walls. Put up a mirror ball put in some bars, but there was no running water on the main bar, so they would have tubs of water where they'd washed the you can imagine wash the glasses and over and over again, people got sick. So it was a dive, but it was refuge, and it was a dance bar, which made it very unusual in New York for for, for gay people. I understand it was known for its jukebox. It was known for its jukebox. It was principally bar for men and in terms of the types of men who were there. One of the people I interviewed said, I was like Noah's ark two of every kind from college students to street, kids to drag queens to business people, but mostly young twenties and thirties. And so that in, in what is the Loor law around the. Jukebox. Why, why is that a thing well Martin boy? So I interviewed who was at stonewall who still very much alive is very early. Seventies was one of the street kids. But unlike most of the street kids was not homeless. He had parents to go home to and very supportive parents. He talked about the jukebox being controlled by as he said, the queen's, the drag queens. And he said, you didn't you didn't dare choose the wrong music? And she did once anything by drinks for everybody. Wouldn't let him jukebox again. So there was there was turf within the stonewall bar different kinds of people hung out in different places. So it was very balkanized, even though it was a gay bar. But in fact, it wasn't even gay bar. It was a gay club to try to get around some rule. So you have to get past bouncer who controlled the kinds of people who were there wanted to tip one way or the other to meet people of color, not too many street, kids, not too many of, of whatever, and then you have to register. And if you look at one of those registers you think that Judy Garland or Donald Duck was there every night. Ran multiple time. They can't just filling out this. You didn't put your real name. Yeah. And so we've talked about how there were regular raids. Here's some tape I wanna play of transgender activist Sylvia Rivera who was a regular at the bar. And she says that the raids didn't usually affect the bar business at least that we don't have that tape. I'm sorry. So we will hear from Sylvia, but oh, here we go great. They would come in beta Gable padlocked the freaking door. The police will leave one way, the mafia was stare Konin adore that had a new register. They have more money in the head more booth. Lillian. What do you think about that? What's, what, what was actually happening with these rates where they just a nuisance. Took a risk. When you went to the gay bar in the nineteen sixties in the nineteen fifties. You knew that, that was a possibility. And yet, I think you went because there was no place else to go virtually they man could cruise in the parks on the streets. Women had softball teams. But that was about it, too. It was the only semi-public venue where you knew you would meet a crowd of people like yourself. And so you kept going back, even though it was possible that you would end up in a paddy wagon that evening. Let's take another call. Rich in New Jersey. Rich, welcome to WNYC. All right. Thank you. The reason I wanted to call in. Is that came out in nineteen seventy three very end was seventeen years old? And I at the time I met someone at your New Jersey who is, you know, older than me tie us, thirty or thirty one years old. But as a seventeen year old he's older than me. So he took me to the city into the bars because I had no idea where to go. I just brand new to it. All the bars. But the distinct memory, I have is Israel walking down. She. I bar. He said. Go into a bar. His you look for the exit sign. And if the police, come in run for that exit sign a just pointing, don't wait for me. He said, I'll meet you find you somewhere having streak, but just keep running. So it's interesting, you know, even though this is four years after stonewall, there were still sort of like looking left and right waiting for it to happen. And it hadn't quite you know, although there was some great freedom at the time, still it was the memory was still fresh in nineteen seventy three. When I first came out, thanks for that. Rich. It wasn't. It wasn't immediate future freedom. No. And it wasn't as the Borrego stopped immediately after or that entrapment stopped immediately. There's a famous rate of the snake pit bar after hours bar in March of nineteen seventy. I in fact, led by in spectra Seymour, pine who led the rate of stonewall inn. And there was they arrested one hundred sixty seven men took them to the Charleston police precinct, and one of the young man Vignelles, who was a, an Argentinean immigrant jump from the second window and second floor window and landed on offense was impaled. They had to cut the fence around him to take him to Saint Vincent's. And it was that event that led to a major protest that night organized by the Liberation Front, and the gang this alliance that drew into the key people who led the movement during that era. Vito Russo and Morty Manford, so not everyone was even activated by stonewall. It was something that it unfolded over a period of time during a period of very intense organizing we want to bring in somebody to. Talk a little bit about the village now as well. Andrew Berman who's on the phone with us. He's the executive director of the Greenwich Village society for historic preservation, and they wanna big victory yesterday's where I wanna talk to him five years, after they started lobbying for their inclusion the gay activists alliance headquarters and the center, which is a community center for algae, LGBT people in village have both been landmark plus for other sites. So they joined the stonewall in itself, which was, of course, the first LGBT site that was Lambda landmark in the city. So Andrew, thanks for joining us to talk about that. Thanks for having me. Can you tell us a little bit about these sites? And and why they got recognized yesterday. Sure. It was a great victory at least five years in the making in twenty fourteen we had proposed the stonewall and along with the LGBT community center on thirteenth street. The gay activists alliance firehouse on street for landmark designation. Stonewall was the first in two thousand fifteen and it's amazing to think that until twenty fifteen there were no buildings in New York City, that we're landmark based on LGBT history. And until yesterday, the only one so those two joined it along with or others the site of the cafe chino, which was a very influential theater in the nineteen fifties and sixties. That was a home to theater that cater largely to gay and lesbian play rights and audience and was enormously important as a space for gay people that also had a huge impact on theatre, the residences of both Audrey board and James. Ball. Twin went on the Upper West side, and Audrey Lord on Staten Island, where landmark and the women's community center on twentieth street in Chelsea, which was a really important space for organizing around seminar, and lesbian issues in nineteen. Seventies, these were all landmark, and they're very important parts of New York City's history, which, you know, until this time hasn't really been recognized in this way. And when you elevate a site to landmark status, you're saying that it has value to everybody in the city, and that it should be it should be remembered, it should be maintained, and it should be honored. Enter stay with us. We're going to take a short break. You're listening to a special live broadcast from WNYC. We've been talking about the uprising at the stonewall in fifty years ago. And after the break, I'll take more of your calls and, and I want to hear from everyone then not only people who lived here in the stonewall. Era. But did you make your way to New York City because this was the place for you to find some kind of LGBT community. I want to hear about that. And did you find it if so tell me about it? It's your turn to call it the number is eight four four seven four five talk, that's eight four four seven four five eight to five five. We'll be right back.

"And this is what the the article really gets at. If you think about cultural landmarks, like the stonewall inn in Manhattan, which is historically significant because it was the site of the stonewall riots that led to the you know, that was the origin of the gay rights movement around the world, really, historically. It's a dingy little pub. You know, right off seventh avenue, it's not a great looking building. But it's culturally significant because of what happened there in the past the strand on the other hand is culturally significant because it continues to exist. That's what's really unique about the strands. So architecturally land marking the building may have the ironic affect of actually destroying the strand because it's going to cut into the really really thin margins that bookstore already operates on in this era of Amazon, and what the city should be doing. And this is what we what the article says what I mentioned, and they quote me actually, my comments at our public hearing to the landmarks preservation commission, which is people should come together, and we should work together here too. Try to figure out ways to ensure the continued survival of the strand. We don't wanna put an a regulatory stranglehold on businesses that were trying to preserve cultural and marking of live cultural icons means doing what you can to keep them alive. That's I think a great point that was made in in this New York Times piece today. So I would encourage our listeners at like bookstores like books like the strand that are just curious about this to go and check it out. I believe that hacker radio show tweeted out a link to confined link to the New York Times article on Twitter page, that's us, by the way hacker radio show. That's true too. So what's what's the next? The next thing that happens next thing that happens is February nineteenth nine a m one central sake. Why at nine am? I know who goes to two hearings at nine the morning. I do and and hopefully a lot of other people. We had a great deal of WBAI listeners there last time we wanna get double the amount this time we are expecting.

"And when we have a mystery to solve we have to get together the Cobra game when. When. You. Okay. So madonna's. But can we talk what happened to Madonna's Budi you? I asked this question because there was some video made available to the world that her booty don't look like it's from planet earth. Actually, if you look at some site shots looks as though. Well, it looks as though she stuffed some sort of like drag Queen hip padding into her jeans get what is going on back there. This all I think this was New York, excuse me, New York City for New Year's Eve, which actually did something pretty cool. She went and performed at the stonewall inn, which is an iconic gay nightclub. That also is a part of gay history. Long story you'll hear more about it this year because it's a fiftieth anniversary anyway, so she was in Greenwich Village in Manhattan on Monday night. She performed like a prayer. And she also did can't help falling in love Elvis is bizarre. Whatever. John was playing guitar which was kind of David Wright. Anyway. So she was hanging out doing her thing and her booty does not look human. No, it's not. And also people are saying that this could be well, first of all let me ask you. Okay. What what say you? What is going on with her? Well. I can't I wish I what's going on with donnas. But I wish I understood first of all I have got a couple of questions, and I don't know if you have followed the trail so to speak, but let's see what you did. There have has she been seen with this booty elsewhere or only because it seems like the only pictures we have of the booty are from on stage at the stonewall inn. But Madonna has been elsewhere. Probably in the intervening days and possibly before. And she's had. So you know, was she wearing a, but is this a, but that was implanted is this a, but that is a stick on. But I don't know. Stephen Madonna at all, I don't know not a Lee press on. But is it? So here's my thought. Okay. Is that I was trying to find footage of Madonna from earlier in two thousand eighteen what was Madonna wearing? What was her but up to now, I felt was her butt up to some footage from the MTV video music awards which happened in late August and Madonna was wearing a very billowy Cape. So we are not able to identify. We can't we can't Madonna's the, but no it's. Also be interesting from Madonna's, but perspective, if she had been post, but surgery if indeed implants going on I can tell you that Bonnie Fullers Hollywood life has a thought that they have an expert. So we don't take kindly to this tabloid because they're usually full of. Yeah. But they say, quote, Madonna sixty.
