Stonewall was the New York City riot that is often cited as the beginning of the movement. The mile-long "unity" flag was seen as their symbol and this summer commemorated Stonewall. Lesbian Those who took part in the Manhattan parade had other things besides the 25th anniversary of Stonewall to celebrate this year: The Supreme Court of Colorado reversed that state's antigay legislation; voters in Oregon and Idaho defeated antigay measures; a record 40 countries were represented at the Rights... 1994 Gay Games, for which President Clinton waived a visa rule to allow HIV-positive foreigners to participate. Still, joy was tempered with sadness and anger as the gay community mourned those lost to AIDS, the elusive cure for which remains unseen at the far end of the rainbow. Peace in the Middle East... After 46 years as enemies, Israel and Jordan made peace and all but ended the threat of another war between the Jewish state and its Arab neighbor. With President Bill Clinton presiding at a White House Mideast Peace ceremony, Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin and King Hussein of Jordan met in public for the first time, shook hands and signed "The Washington Declaration" that an nounced: "the long conflict between the two states is now coming to an end.

Five times that many fled to Tanzania or to Zaire and refugee camps grew to rival cities in population. Ken Griffey, Jr. of the Seattle Mariners was well on his way to breaking Roger Maris' h o m e r u n record of 61 when the baseball season came to an abrupt end. No World Series. No Ken Griffey jr. homerun record. He's looking to the 1995 season to find a big place in the record books. Baseball Stike... The Baseball Season ended early in 1994. The players went on strike in August and a month later the owners voted to cancel the remainder of the regular season, including the playoffs and the World Series. It was the eighth strike in 23 seasons. The dispute centered on the owner's demand to create cost controls through a salary cap. The players wouldn't accept it and went on strike. It was the first time since 1904 that the World Series, which had survived world wars and an earthquake since its inception in 1903, was not played. The Classroom 173
