Subject

Queen Power article in the Rat Subterranean News

Description

An article in the Rat, Subterranean News entitled "Queen Power" chronicling the night of the Stonewall Riots. Included on the page is a caricature of a gay man captioned with a lisp. The reporter who wrote this account is not credited and neither is the cartoonist. In David Carter's Stonewall research he cites the author of this account as "Tom" the Rat reporter. This account continues to develop the Stonewall narrative and reinforces the idea of spontaneous action. The "kids" were taking back what was theirs (and rightfully theirs from the beginning) from the oppressive power of the police.
