LGBTQ History Panel

 

What do you know about your history as a queer person? What do you really know about Stonewall, the first Christopher Street Parade, the AIDS-crisis, and what life was like as a LGBTQ person in the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s? What was coming out like? How did life change when AIDS came? Where did one find lovers and soulmates before Grindr, Tinder, and social media?

This is an opportunity to learn our queer history through the experiences of those who were present in the early movement. Come listen to those who came before us, those who paved the way. It's a chance to ask questions about what life was like being a part of, or an ally to, the LGBTQ community in the midst of the gay rights movement.

Anthony Whitfield, Associate Professor of Art and Design Parsons
