Från Stonewall till global frigörelse

The world we live in exists in the aftermath of the British Empire and other forms of colonialism, which crimes against humanity includes imposing upon the world a deeply homophobic, transphobic, kinkophobic and misogynistic form of sexual morality. Against such oppression stands the global struggle for universal Human Rights, in forms such as the growing global Pride movement which started to gain momentum through the uprising at the Stonewall club in the USA in the summer of 1969. Today, we are largely building our movement's narratives on various stories of this incident. What narratives about Stonewall should we focus on, and why? We now live in a time characterized by both liberation and oppression. A wave of legalization of same-sex marriages sweeps over the traditional western countries as well as over Asia. Thanks to the efforts of the WHO and others, genital mutilation of intersex people is now on the decline worldwide, and since summer 2018, sadomasochism and fetishism have finally been removed from the global list of mental disrders. Meanwhile, regressive forces from the USA and many other countries are fighting against this development. In this context, let's take a look at the Stonewall uprising from a global perspective.
