50 Years of Stonewall: LGBTQ+ Activism in the U.S.
A new display at the Library of Congress will commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall uprising, which occurred June 28-July 1,1969, at the Stonewall Inn, Greenwich Village, New York City.
Materials are drawn from the papers of Lilli Vincenz and Franklin Kameny, two early LGBTQ+ rights pioneers. Kameny and Vincenz worked together frequently, both being present at some of the earliest LGBTQ+ protests in United States history. The Stonewall 50 display also includes flyers and ephemera from the first pride march, also known as Christopher Street Liberation Day 1970.
