Selected Shorts: Stonewall at 50 with Nancy
About Selected Shorts: Stonewall at 50
2019 marks the 50th anniversary of the riot at Stonewall Inn that spawned the gay liberation movement, an act of civil and social engagement that has evolved to embrace a wide range of sexuality, gender, and identity issues. This evening will feature works that reflect the importance of the movement, accounts from The Stonewall Reader from Penguin Classics, and also some of its most famous, outspoken, poetic, and fabulous artists and writers. Co-hosted by Kathy Tu and Tobin Low from Nancy, the acclaimed podcast from WNYC Studios featuring stories and conversations about the queer experience today. With readings by Ivory Aquino (When We Rise), Kay Ulanday Barrett (When The Chant Comes), Becca Blackwell (They, Themself and Schmerm), Kate Bornstein (Gender Outlaw), John Benjamin Hickey (The Good Wife), and more!
Actors subject to change.
There will not be a book signing at this event.
