Photo by Robin Hammond @hammond_robin | Fifty years ago the LGBTQ+ community in New York rose up against discrimination. The Stonewall riots, as they became known, are widely considered the most important event leading to the LGBTQ liberation movement. There has been significant progress in the fight for equality for LGBTQ Americans, but there is a long way to go, especially for vulnerable groups such as seniors. Many LGBT seniors face prejudice, with their relationships, even when decades old, still not recognized. Here, 79-year-old Robert Waldron (left), with his partner of 37 years, Vernon May, also 79, explains that he’s been to many funerals of LGBT friends and has seen partners sit alone while their loved one is buried. “They were like a stranger at the funeral,” says Robert. “Can you imagine? You go to a funeral, and you, as a partner, sitting there, your name not even mentioned!” See "Stonewall at 50: Stories of resilience and resistance" on the Nat Geo site.

While the reminders of a still active cod fishery abound in cuisine and in harbor activity, many of the original fishing huts have been converted into idyllic guest houses for travelers to enjoy the views of surrounding mountains and the midnight summer sun above the arctic circle.

Moonrise Over the Eastern Sierras | Photograph by Benjamin Kirsch
“On a summer night in the Eastern Sierra Nevada, a friend and I reached the crest of a 12,000-foot mountain pass as the sun was setting,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Benjamin Kirsch. “We found that the moon was rising in the distance, and it made us feel as if we were on another planet looking up at a distant planet.”

Today is the 50th anniversary of the moon landing, and to celebrate, we invited @usairforce Major General and @nasa astronaut Bill Anders to guest edit our assignment, “The Moon in Your Life.” To submit your best moon photo, to the link in our profile (www.natgeoyourshot.com). Submission deadline is July 25, 2019.
