The event will be followed by a small reception.
EVENT SUMMARY: On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots, the RLS–NYC office is hosting a panel discussion with author and historian MARC STEIN, Professor of History at San Francisco State University, and PATRICK HENZE, PhD in Gender Studies and political drag queen from Berlin, Germany. Providing a historical overview of the early beginnings and developments of the movements in both countries, the panelists will analyze the political motivations and philosophies behind them as well as their connections to the anti-capitalist left. They will also explore how the New York riots inspired gays and lesbians in Germany. The panel will be moderated by ELLEN BROIDY, an early member of the Gay Liberation Front and part of the Come Out cell as well as co-founder of the First Annual Gay Pride March.
