THE LGBTQ+ MOVEMENT AFTER STONEWALL

Saturday 26 October: 3:00pm - 4:30pm

Pembroke College, Nihon Room, Trumpington Street, CB2 1RF

How has the memory of the Stonewall Uprising informed LGBTQ+ politics in the present day? Join queer activists to discuss queer history and social change since 1969.

The Stonewall Uprising, which took place in Greenwich Village, New York in June 1969, is generally considered to be a turning point in the history of the LGBTQ+ community. The riots helped to spark a queer revolution both within the United States and around the world, leading to the creation of the gay liberation movement and the first gay pride parade the following year. The importance of the Stonewall riots was recognised by President Obama in June 2016 when he announced the creation of the Stonewall National Monument, the first ever national monument dedicated to the LGBTQ+ equality movement. To mark the fiftieth anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising we are holding a series of events to explore the history of the riots and the impact of this event on the subsequent evolution of the LGBTQ+ rights movement.
