CBST.JEWISH.LGBTQ.60+ trip: NYPL's "Love & Resistance: Stonewall 50" Exhibition
Join Rabbi Marisa James on a Docent Led Tour of the New York Public Library's "Love & Resistance: Stonewall 50" Exhibition.
The Stonewall Riots were a flash point in LGBTQ history. After the riots that took place at the Stonewall Inn in June 1969, the LGBTQ civil rights movement went from handfuls of pioneering activists to a national movement mobilizing thousands. This season, The New York Public Library is commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots. Through a major exhibition, a series of programs, book recommendations, and more, we invite you to learn more about the emergence of the modern LGBTQ movement, as well as culture, issues, and activism today.
Discover the emergence of the LGBTQ civil rights movement throughout the 1960s and 70s through the photographs of Kay Tobin Lahusen and Diana Davies—pioneering photojournalists who captured the pivotal events of this era and change the ways LGBTQ people perceived themselves—alongside items from the Library’s vast archival holdings in LGBTQ history.
