  In 1969, the cops raided the Stonewall Inn. Today, 48 years later, they were there to protect it, in the wake of the massacre in Orlando.

  Laws and attitude have come a long way over the last few decades, but there is still obviously a long way to go.

  You can not legislate against hate, or stupidity. But you can educate and lead by example.
Look at all these photos. Think about what happened. Do what you can to help make sure it never happens again.

  The Save the Village tour stops at Stonewall. Now, unfortunately, there will be one more story to tell, about June 12, 2016, when thousands gathered there to share their sadness, grief and hope for a better world not only for the LGBT community, but for everyone.

  Go to the Save the Village Tours Facebook page to see amany more photos of the sad day.
