In 1959 a group of queer and trans patrons were hanging out at Cooper Do-Nuts (a popular spot between two Los Angeles gay bars), when it was police came to harass and arrest patrons for wearing clothes that were not in line with their assigned gender. As the people were being put in police cars the crowd began to throw coffee, donuts, and garbage at the police sparking the first recorded queer uprising in the United States. This is an original design based on the Cooper Do-Nuts sign and we are happy to include it in our Mimeographic History line of designs. The profits from this design help us keep making the podcast Totally Trans.
