The daily Metro newspaper has not always been in the community's good books. Indeed, some ill considered headlines once earned it the monicker “The Hetro”. Nevertheless, the newspaper has published a major feature looking at what to expect in New York during this summer as the city marks the fiftieth anniversary of the seminal Stonewall Riots, the event that marks the end of the old apologetic “homophile” movement, and its replacement with a proud, liberation themed gay movement. The Metro says that there are more than one hundred exhibitions, talks, screenings and debates this summer, with full details being listed at a special website, stonewall50consortium.org. At the legendary Guggenheim musem, there will be a retrospective of the life and work of Robert Mapplethorpe, whose images of leather pride and acts were controversial and a touchstone in the nineteen eighties between the community and the fanatical right wing of the Republicans. Among the best LGBTQ bars in the city, the paper lists Boxers, Marie's Crisis Cafe, Cubbyhole, Julius and of course, the Stonewall.
