STONEWALL RIOTS - Guatemala

Dark Arts Coffee

The Stonewall Riots began in the early hours of June 28th 1969 in response to a Police raid. Police raids on gay bars were common, but this time, enough was enough and at The Stonewall Inn patrons fought back to the point where the police actually had to barricade themselves in the bar. Six days of rioting followed, and from that, an international Gay rights movement was born, which evolved into the LGBTQ rights movement we see today. 

I owe so much to these people. They inspired me to become the butch, queer, visible lesbian I always wanted to be and to have the courage to speak up and live honestly, openly and proudly. I'm lucky to live and work surrounded by people who not only accept my queerness but celebrate it. Others, however, aren't so fortunate. All over the world LGBTQ people are still being beaten, murdered, jailed and ostracised for being who they are. None of us are free till we all are so, until then, as well as celebrating and being proud during this time, we have to remember that Pride is still a protest.

We are stoked to be bringing you this coffee, where a portion of sales will be going to the Albert Kennedy Trust, who support LGBTQ young people facing homelessness due to coming out. 

We have made sure to get enough of this coffee in so it will be available for wholesale and online over the coming month.

Don Gregorio Zamora founded Finca Rabanales - now run by his great great grandchildren making this a five-generation family-run farm. The farm didn’t start out with coffee - it originally farmed livestock. Don Gregorio Zamora planted coffee in 1894. From the beginning, the Ventura’s have been guided by their commitment to producing high-quality coffee, something that has been passed on to each generation.
