NYC to PGH: 50 Years After Stonewall

Jun 28, 2019 @ 6:00 pm

In the early morning hours of June 28, 1969, the New York City Police Department raided the Stonewall Inn in Greenwich Village, a bar frequented by members of the LGBTQ community. However things didn’t quite go as planned when the LGBTQ community, led by transgender people of color, started a peaceful demonstration that quickly turned violent against the New York City Police Department.

Five decades later, let’s come together to remember and honor this important turning point in our history as we unveil a permanent art installation at the intersection of Ellsworth & Maryland thanks to the efforts of Councilwoman Erika Strassburger. Show up, stand up, and let your voices be heard as our fight for equality continues!
