To celebrate LGBTQ+ History Month, the Intercultural Diversity Center will host the Stonewall National Museum’s “50 Years: The Stonewall Uprising” traveling exhibit. The June 1969 riots at the Stonewall Inn in New York’s Greenwich Village are generally cited as the starting point of the LGBTQ+ rights movement. Participants will learn about the creation and execution of the LGBTQ+ rights movement, the era of LGBTQ+ liberation, the impact of gay activist organizations, and understand why the Stonewall riots became the catalytic movement in the effort to secure equal rights for LGBTQ+ Americans. For more information, contact the Intercultural Diversity Center at ua_idc@ua.edu.
