[a href="http://View My Video"]GOAL PRESS CONFERENCE Outside CUPS Bar[/a]
As we remember the 19th Anniversary of GOAL's Convention in Puerto Rico, I'll finally let loose with a couple of clips from my video archive of the event. These will be crude 3rd generation type videos and they're meant to be just glimpses into what went on. you can refer to the previous postings to get an idea of what happened. The above was a couple of days after our difficulties with the PR PD. A press conference outside "CUPS", the bar that was raided by the PRPD in order to intimidate and harass our members. We did not take it lying down. I'll try to post more here within the next few days. But for now....enjoy!
************The above link takes you to the TinyPic site where the video will be displayed. This is the first time I've ever done this so bear with the crudeness of it.... ******

Today marks the 20th Anniversary of GOAL NY's groundbreaking convention in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Some of us called it the "Puerto Rican Stonewall" at the time. Ordinarily, I'd be celebrating the 20th anniversary from the rooftops but seeing as how one of the main people involved in the event has since "come out" as virulently anti-cop and, to be honest, virulently racist, I can't or won't celebrate the way I'd like to. So...I'll just post a mischievously altered photo...in good fun of course . But it was a great time to be a GOAL member even though it was pretty dangerous down there for most of us! We got through it though!
