Giuliani's Gay Pride celebration at New York City's Gracie Mansion.  Pictured on the far left is the vicious Harryette Garblestein; the vivacious Cristina Hayworth bussing the famous Mayor; on the right busting out with laughter is S.R.V.A. director Willson L.

Cristina navigates across Avenue of the Americas/NYC in "Stonewall Car"

The famous blue 1969 convertible "Stonewall Convertible" is shown in the heart of Greenwich Village in Manhattan, NYC traveling west on Waverly Place crossing Avenue of the Americas heading toward the Gayest street in the world:  Christopher Street.  The well-known signage on the side of the car reads: "The 1969 Stonewall Car".  S.R.V.A. Stonewall Veterans ridin' high in the "Stonewall Convertible" pictured above are (l-2-r):  Terri Van Dyke (ridin' "shotgun"); Cristina Hayworth (up for her annual trek from San Juan standing in the car a-la-Evita Peron); Yvonne Ritter, RN (atop rear seat, left) and Rev. Magora Elmira (atop rear seat, right).  Countess Conni Briana (sun-glared) is driving the "Big Blue".  Because for the first time in New York City parade herstory, the "S/W-Car" contained only females, S.R.V.A. director Willson Henderson labeled it the "Stonewall Fish Tank""!  Hello!

shown in four pictures above in Puerto Rico, looking faux regal with that gold plastic head piece!


Cristina Santiago Hayworth has been a longtime member of the STONEWALL Rebellion Veterans' Association ("S.R.V.A.") of the 1969 Stonewall Rebellion in Greenwich Village, New York.  Cristina was first elected as the S.V.A. (international) Ambassadress in 1994 -- the year of "Stonewall 25", celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Stonewall Rebellion throughout the world.  The largest celebration was in New York City in Manhattan where there were two separate Gay Pride "marches" (not "parades" that one special year).  Cristina tearfully accompanied 24 other Stonewall veterans on the huge stage in Central Park.  The SRVA's elected spokesperson Queen Allyson provided the riveting speech.  One of the major themes was the natural Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender ("G.L.B.T.") diversity -- particularly transgender leaders such as Allyson, Brooke, Cristina, Eleanor, Gertie, Ginnie, Ivana, Rose and Sylvia -- of the original STONEWALL Club in the late 1960s and the S.R.V.A. now.   

See Cristina Hayworth with the S.R.V.A. leading a Gay Pride parade in NYC and with a Mayoral guest at:


The SRVA's Ambassadress Cristina Hayworth of Puerto Rico is riding in the famous 1969 convertible "Stonewall Car" -- owned by the STONEWALL Rebellion Veterans' Association.  New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is the guest of the S.R.V.A. leading the NYC Gay Pride Parade.  The captivating photo shows the mayor coming to the "Stonewall Convertible" to personally meet the welcoming Cristina (standing), Bert Coffman (sitting) and Chyna Fucito (sitting atop back seat).  You can see the metallic blue color of the "Stonewall Convertible"!  This photo was published in the major newspaper New York Newsday.

The Executive Committee of the STONEWALL Rebellion Veterans' Association approved the S.R.V.A. director Willson Henderson's appointment of Cristina S. Hayworth as the official S.R.V.A. Liaison to Puerto Rico and Latin America.  Cristina is also involved with the creation of a new political party in Puerto Rico, which will embrace the civil rights Stonewall history and current GLBT concerns and issues.  The name of the group is appropriately and proudly called Heritage of Pride Puerto Rico ("HPPR").  Senorita Cristina is its "presidente prominente primera"!


On the occasion of the 39th anniversary of the Stonewall Rebellion, S.R.V.A. Director Willson L. Henderson expanded Cristina Hayworth's S.R.V.A. realm to include all of Latin America besides Puerto Rico!  Cristina has the helpful advantage of natural and fluent Spanish for the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual & Transgender ("G.L.B.T.") people who may telephone the S.R.V.A. from any of the countries in South America, Central America and Mexico in addition to the Dominican Republic and her native homeland Puerto Rico.  

SVA-er Cristina Hayworth was campaigning with American presidential candidate -- active S.R.V.A. Honorary Member -- U.S. Senator Hillary Clinton in Puerto Rico on their "Democratic Primary Day" on Sunday the 1st of June 2008.  Cristina thanked the most-famous American woman Senator Hillary for the wonderful letter that the senator recently sent to the S.V.A. on the occasion of "Stonewall 39".  Not to miss a beat, Cristina cellphone-called the S.V.A. director Willson Henderson in Manhattan directly from the scene.  For your information, Hillary won the P.R. primary election by a blow-out of 69%!  Fast-forward to the last Sunday in June when Cristina is in Manhattan, NYC, leading the "New York City 39th Annual G.L.B.T. Pride Parade" with the STONEWALL Rebellion Veterans' Association of the 1969 uprising with the classsic 1969 blue vehicle known as the "Stonewall Convertible".   

Senorita Cristina called the S.R.V.A. on Thanksgiving Day to wish all of the American Stonewall veterans a very "Happy Thanksgiving"!  She repledged her 'gracias' to the STONEWALL V.A.  Cristina looks forward to the new year start of the historic and milestone commemoration of "Stonewall 40"!
