Forty years to the day after the raid on the Stonewall Inn, the unofficial birthplace of the gay-rights movement, the Dallas Voice's Instant Tea blog has been full of updates Sunday concerning last night's Fort Worth police raid on the Rainbow Lounge on 615 S. Jennings Ave. There are myriad first-hand accounts, including one from former Star-Telegram critic Todd Camp, who happened to be celebrating his birthday at the recently opened gay bar; wrote Camp in the comments, "This looked like random harassment, plain and simple. It's sad that in this day and age, on the anniversary of one of the most important days in gay rights history that the Fort Worth and State police would choose to attack gays in such an aggressive and unjustified manner." http://blogs.dallasobserver.com/unfairpark/2009/06/on_40th_anniversary_of_stonewa.php

If your In DFW, Rally tonight at the new Rainbow Lounge (651 Jennings st Fort Worth TX) and Protest Walk into Down Town
