STONEWALL 50 | PLACE, COMMUNITY, AND LGBT HISTORY

June 12 | 6:30 PM7:30 PM | 143 Jewett Parkway
Buffalo, NY 14214 United States
| $10

The historic uprising at the Stonewall Inn, a Greenwich Village gay bar, took place fifty years ago this June and is considered a key turning point in the LGBT rights movement. However, long before the summer of 1969, LGBT people were leaving their mark on New York City and America.

Amanda Davis, project manager of the NYC LGBT Historic Sites Project, will discuss the importance of place in connecting and providing refuge for a marginalized LGBT community. She will also highlight the Project’s collaboration with the museum staff of the Alice Austen House, the pioneering early 20th century photographer’s residence, to reinterpret its historical narrative and acknowledge the life of Austen’s same-sex partner.
