Stonewall & Beyond: Honoring 40 Years Of Radical Queer Organizing

Published on Apr 20, 2009

Join Astraea in marking the 40th anniversary of the legendary Stonewall Rebellion, a spark that helped launch four decades of queer radical movements — sex radicalism, lesbian feminism, and transgender liberation; anti-war, HIV/AIDS, economic and racial justice struggles; and more.

USA- New York

Some LGBT activists would draw a straight line from the uprising against police violence then to the campaign for marriage equality now — but we know there has been a diverse abundance of agendas and visions for queer and trans politics every step of the way.

In conjunction with Left Turn magazine’s new issue focused on queer radicalism, this event will present an informative and inspiring evening of stories from movements past, strategies for the present moment, and our dreams for the future.

Featuring: Katherine Acey, Executive Director, Astraea Foundation and Astraea grantee partners and colleagues.
