Ravelry commemorates Stonewall anniversary!

Screen Shot 2014-06-28 at 12.31.40 AM

I just logged in to Ravelry to look up something and I noticed a little rainbow flag that appeared to be attached to the ‘l’ as though the ‘l’ were a flagpole. Although June is LGBT History Month and pride month, I was pretty sure it hadn’t been there any of the other times I logged in this month. So I searched the forums and found a thread (login required) in which it was explained that it was for the 45th anniversary of the Stonewall riots. The riots are considered by many to be the beginning of the modern LGBT rights movement.

Thanks, Ravelry, for recognizing this important day as we continue to fight for equal rights!
