Honoring Gay Pride

Gay Pride Special – 10% Off

Recently, someone asked us, “What’s Stonewall?” It was a fair question. This curious soul hadn’t yet been born when the raids in New York City’s Greenwich Village came to a head one late June night in 1969 at the Stonewall Inn just off Sheridan Square. Thirteen men were arrested. By the next morning, hundreds of gay men and lesbians were protesting in the streets. Stonewall was the dawn of Gay Pride.

Most LGBT people remember hiding in their lives, whether as a kid in school just coming to terms with being gay, or as an adult working in corporations where a wedding ring – whether or not you’re legally married – is de rigueur. It still happens.

It takes courage to bare your sexuality to the outside world. Sometimes it takes courage to practice your sexuality at all. It takes special courage to stand up for the rights of other people to openly practice their sexuality.

So we salute those high-school students in the small town of Clovis, New Mexico, who had the courage to include gay couples in their yearbook.

We salute the courage of all the people, gay and straight, who call and write to us from all over the world where “deviant sexuality” is not tolerated – from small towns in Arkansas and Texas and Trinidad to cities in Poland and Lebanon.

We salute the California Supreme Court for overturning the ban on same-sex marriage.

In honor of those courageous acts, and in celebration of Gay Pride Month, we are pleased to offer 10% off all items at Fatale Media through the month of June. Order three or more DVDs and you get free shipping in the U.S.!

We are as committed as ever to showing sexuality in a real and positive and authentic way, and we thank you for having the courage to stand beside us.

Happy Pride!

Nan & Christi
