Thursday, June 24, 1999 -- Pictured are STONEWALL Rebellion Veterans' Association ("S.V.A.") Ambassadress Cristina Hayworth (up from Puerto Rico) and bussing a very amused and fun-filled New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani.  S.V.A. President and contact for the event Williamson Henderson is laughing big time.  In the rear, S.V.A. Vice-President Jeremiah Newton is beaming.  Literally to the far left is former S.V.A. correspondent and diehard Brooklyn lesbian Harriet "Mo" Garblestein.  At this popular event, well-covered by the media, Mayor Giuliani proudly announced the Federal government decision to proudly add the legendary Stonewall site in Greenwich Village into the "United States Registry of Historic Places".  The landmark decision was done at this time to coincide with the 30th anniversary of the historic 1969 Stonewall Rebellion started by the visionary and now legendary Stonewallers.

The Mayor was with the STONEWALL V.A just three days later leading the annual New York City Gay Pride Parade down famous Fifth Avenue in Manhattan.  When Mayor Rudy Giuliani used to march with the un-popular NYC Log Cabin Gay Republicans, the Mayor unfairly received many boos and hisses from the parade spectators.  In sharp contrast, whenever Mayor Rudy marched with the S.V.A. and the famous knock-out blue classic 1969 Cadillac convertible "Stonewall Car" leading the parade, he received cheers and kisses from the crowds!  Mayor Rudy gladly observed and verbally commented on the very welcomed change!  By the way, Rudy loves the big car... big time!
