Eddie’s back with another episode of “Queer History 101”, and today we’re time-traveling to the vibrant streets of 1960s San Francisco. πŸŒ‰βœ¨ Dive deep into the heart of the Tenderloin neighborhood and discover the powerful uprising at Compton’s Cafeteria. 🍽️πŸ”₯

From the sanctuary it provided to the marginalized transgender women to the fiery resistance against police raids, Compton’s Cafeteria was more than just a dinerβ€”it was a battleground. πŸŒͺ️πŸ’₯ With the help of Vanguard, an LGBTQ+ youth-led organization, the community stood tall against discrimination and injustice. 🌈✊

Drawing insights from Susan Stryker’s “Transgender History,” πŸ“– we’ll explore the confrontations, the spirit of unity, and the legacy of this pivotal riot. A precursor to the iconic Stonewall Riots, this event reminds us of our community’s enduring spirit of resistance. πŸ’ͺ🌈
