What are We Remembering Today?

By Tyler Sikov, Abby Stoudt, Sonya Acharya


This memorial day at the Pittiful News, we’re remembering gay rights!

  1. On this day, on the 25th of May, in 1895 (in the olde London time), Oscar Wilde was arrested for doing gay things in public. The 1890s were not a good time to be gay. #BeGayAndDoCrimes
    1. (Basil to Dorian) “It is quite true that I have worshipped you with far more romance of feeling than a man usually gives to a friend.”
  2. Then, 118 years later, Ukraine held its first pride parade in Kiev. Coincidence? I think not!
    1. It was the biggest ever pride parade, too!
  3. That is it, but like just remember gay rights with us today! :  ^)
