He OWED DRUG MONEY to those other fellow drug-dealers, one of whom he often humped (or was humped by).
He died SITTING, not hung from a fence.
Stonewall bar in NYC is a historical gay mecca where homoz rioted after they could no longer stand police repression, right?
Wasn’t a bar, it was a bottle-club and it was mobbed up.
The primary income of the biz was selling drinks to gay guys, yes, but some of the patrons caused trouble and when the trouble-maker was closeted, often the mob guys would kill 2 birds with 1 stone by BLACKMAILING the trouble-maker:
They’d get money, plus the guy would stop going there, right? Which was what they wanted.
Well this one guy got really violent about getting blackmailed and THAT is why there was a riot.
They just changed the story cuz that’s what they preferred, just as with the Holy Saint Matt Shepard BS story.
