Stonewall Uprising is a 2010 documentary reconstructing the historical events that led to the Gay Rights Movement. "This was the Rosa Parks moment, the time that gay people stood up and said no" , said Lucian Truscott, IV, Journalist for The Village Voice.
Told with compassion by those who were there, the story begins June 28, 1969 with a police raid on a gay bar, The Stonewall Inn in New York City, a raid that sparked three days of riots and the start of a movement for human rights that continues under the LGBTQIA+ banner today.
The film is followed by a facilitated discussion led by Catherine Shuler and Stephen Colgan. Childcare is available. The event is free (small donations happily accepted) and ALL ARE WELCOME.
