50 years ago this month, June 28-29 to be precise, the famous Stonewall Riots took place in New York.


It's a pivotal moment in twentieth century history whose repercussions are still being felt today.

A year later, in 1970, the first Gay Pride marches took place on the anniversary of Stonewall. And from there, it mushroomed into an international celebration of LGBTQ+ people and culture. Now, most cities in North America have Pride marches, often with the official sanction and participation of governments. Officially, June is now Pride Month, so most of these festivals take place then. However, some, such as London, Ontario where I live, come later (ours is in July, probably to avoid the already crowded Pride calendar in June).

This year, for the first time, Wondercafe2 is showing the rainbow banner in its header for the months of June and July, showing our welcome and support for Pride and the LGBTQ+ community. And we invite all WC2 members to join in by taking on rainbow avatars or other signs of support.

Let's show Pride in our community and our LGBTQ+ friends, family, and neighbours!!

FYI, I put the banner in place of the header image, so if you're on a phone or small tablet, you may have to turn the phone to "landscape", ie. long edges on top and bottom, to see it.

The ability to easily change that image was part of the redesign done for the upgrade this past winter. Going forward, I hope to start changing it for various seasons, festivals, etc. Ideas are welcome. Just send me a conversation. If you have an image (preferably with public domain or some kind of creative commons rights) we can use, even better, otherwise I could scout one up. I plan to find something Christmas-y that will go up in December but don't have anything planned for later in the Summer or in the Fall yet.

It looks good! At first I thought it was an ad banner or something that wasn’t supposed to be there...then I clued in!

My ape is showing his colours. Pride version of my avatar is courtesy of an English friend on my writing boards who has mad Photoshop skills and is a hell of a writer. She's also a bit of a geek and does moderation and admin work over there.

The splash of colour does brighten up the place.
