Breaking Down a Stonewall: 40 Years of LGBT Jewish Activism
AIRED:
On June 28, 1969, police raided a gay bar in New York City known as the Stonewall Inn. After years of police harassment, LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) people decided to fight back. Often cited as the defining moment of the modern LGBT rights movement, that fateful night became known as the Stonewall riots. In honor of the 40th anniversary of the Stonewall riots, GLOE and Sixth & I present an insider?s look at several generations of activism from the LGBT Jewish community.From Harvey Milk to Adrienne Rich, some of the most pioneering activists have shared a common Jewish background. In this moderated discussion, we'll delve into the intersections between Jewish cultural heritage and activist work for and by the LGBT community.moreless
