Stonewall Is Alive and Well

In the early hours of June 28, 1969, a group of gay customers at a popular gay bar in Greenwich Village called the Stonewall Inn, who had grown angry at the harassment by police, took a stand and a riot broke out. As word spread throughout the city about the demonstration, the customers of the inn were soon joined by other gay men and women who started throwing objects at the policemen, shouting “gay power.” – See more at: http://www.civilrights.org/archives/2009/06/449-stonewall.html#sthash.qzFV7Q3n.dpuf

Whatever happened to Queens of Sheba-All female, all black rock band in the Uk?

I’m on a quest to find these ladies! I love that they existed in this capacity of blackness and music. Anyone with any information about them please comment below. Thanks!

As of June 2012-“We’ve got an announcement to make. As of yesterday, Queens of Sheba have disbanded. This is not due to any sort of dispute between us. We’ve had a disagreement with our manager, and as a result the only option for us is to regroup and reform under a different name. Do still watch this page for updates, as we will be continuing with our music and will send you all details of where you can find us.”
