When Reza, a 29-year-old Iranian, heard that his president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, had denied in New York that homosexuals were in Iran, he was shocked but not surprised. Reza knows the truth. He is gay.

In 1969 three events happened in U.S. history. One of them was Stonewall. It was the law to arrest people for cross-dressing and homosexuality. One night police stormed the Stonewall, a popular hangout for gays. Instead of going quietly into that good night, the entire crowd, including the employees, stood up to the police.

That was the beginning of the civil rights movement. It is interesting to consider it is less than forty years old.

That was the beginning of the civil rights movement? I think you are a couple decades off and looking at the wrong group of people but if that was indeed the beginning of the gay rights movement then good for them.
