|Show your colors: German wood bracelet + necklaces at Momo.|
June 28th, 2019 marks the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall uprising, where patrons stood up to New York City police during yet another late night raid of a gay club. The clashes incited activist groups and gay rights organizations across the US to unite and bring their cause to light. A year later, the very first Gay Pride marches were held on the streets of NYC, LA, San Francisco and Chicago.
Back then, Seattle was a sleepy burg — we’ve since woken up to become leaders in recognizing and embracing gay and LGBTQ rights. Momo is proud to be part of a city of such inclusiveness, and you can be sure that Seattle will be jumping with activities related to this momentous anniversary.
