Not so very long ago, on the neighbouring island of Fuerteventura, there was the concentration camp of Tefia where, amongst others, Octavio Garcia was imprisoned simply for being a gay man. Some were imprisoned there even without trial, subjected to forced labor, and miserable conditions. Let me tell you about Stormé.
She was the butch lesbian responsible for starting the first Stonewall riot at a. That night, this brave woman of color, Stormé DeLarverie was hit on the head with a billy club and handcuffed.
That summer night a revolution began and it was this strong, butch woman that is believed to have thrown the first defensive punch. That night the gay men, lesbians, drag queens and drag kings who hung out there decided for the first time to fight back! Instead of the festive PRIDE celebrations we see today, it was in those days a political demonstration in response to what had happened at the Stonewall Inn on Christopher Street, New York, the year before.
This PRIDE demonstration was severely repressed by police, with injuries to, and arrests of, many of the participants. And that brings me to Darío Jaén Rivero; a kind and nobel man who took upon himself the task of spreading the word of acceptance and diversity, and with the support of our Alcalde Marco Aurelio Pérez Sanchez, he founded our association GLAY together with several members of this unique and international LGBT community of San Bartolomé de Tirajana.
He was a man who lived for, and by, his principles of acceptance, equality, and inclusion for all, regardless their origin, gender, or sexual orientation. Darío Jaén brought people together and helped build a strong community! Today we thank and honour Octavio Garcia, Stormé DeLarverie, Dario Jaén, and all the numerous gay men, lesbians, bisexuals, drag queens, drag kings, and transgender people, who have endured persecution and discrimination, who stood up for equality and acceptance, and who gave their best, like Martin Hakan Hett who I like to mention as well, so that we as an LGBT community can enjoy our basic human rights today, here in Maspalomas!
Let us honour their lives and make a stand against injustice and discrimination, at home, and wherever we find it in the world! Let us celebrate their legacy and perseverance, to whom we owe our present freedoms!
It is up to all of us now to continue their path to a better, diverse, and more inclusive world!
