Love and Resistance—Stonewall After 50 Years
The 2019 World Pride celebration in New York City marks the fiftieth anniversary of the Stonewall riots, the demonstrations in Greenwich Village that paved the way for more recent advances in LGBTQ+ equality nationally and worldwide. Jason Baumann, the curator of a Stonewall exhibit at the New York Public Library and the editor of two books on the riots, reflects on the defining events of the summer of 1969 and how they might inform our ongoing struggle for justice.
