June 27, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
The Center is proud to partner with the Mob Museum to bring you Stonewall and The Mob: The 50th Anniversary of the Gay Rights Movement.
In June 1969, patrons of popular New York City gay club Stonewall Inn gathered to protest ongoing raids and harassment conducted by law enforcement. This uprising marked the beginning of the gay rights movement in America.
Join us for a special presentation with historian Alex Hortis as he discusses:
•The integral role the Mob played in controlling New York gay clubs
•How this event impacted LGBTQ history
•And much more
A book signing will follow this program.
