All about Cats. A CATchy tail indeed.

NB The show uses a segment about the Black Cat Tavern Raid and Riot in Silver Lake Los Angeles on New Years Day 1967. 2017 marks the 50th Anniversary of this event where patrons of this then newly opened queer bar were subjected to a brutal and homophobic attack by undercover police, sparked by two men kissing to ring in the new year. Two of the men arrested for kissing were later convicted under California Penal Code Section 647 and registered as sex offenders.

Only 50 years ago…..We still need JOY!!
