Don't go gay

This Do Not Enter sign is at the corner of New York's Christopher Street and Stonewall Place - which is kind of funny as - in case you didn't know - it is the birthplace of Gay Pride Day (called Christopher Street Day in some countries). Here the NY police raided the gay bar "Stonewall" in 1969 sparking off riots and demonstrations for gay rights, and it's still New York's queerest neighborhood. Of course the sign indicates a one-way street and isn't a warning sign set up by homophobic citizens - well at least I think so :)
