Twenty-One
Add to My Calendar

A reflection on my son visiting the Stonewall Inn because of his passionate commitment to LGBT equality, only to find that he couldn't go in.

I remember the age of consent cut from twenty-one
A landmark amongst all the battles our struggles have won 
And now it's the age of admission the Stonewall Insists

A child of the Pride years goes pilgrim to Christopher Street
But finds there's no room at the Inn here at history's seat
Our movement has won so much more than its birthplace admits
