Dubbed ‘The Queer Brick’ and weighing at 4.5 lbs ., the item was hand-painted by Black queer arms and has historic importance. ‘Pride was a riot’ is printed on the piece and a popular quotation by legendary drag queen and activist Marsha P. Johnson seems on the reverse aspect. The format of the Pleasure brick remembers the first brick thrown at the Stonewall uprising—an party that was fundamental in the homosexual liberation motion.
