This Pride Month, June 2019, marks the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots, a series of spontaneous protests that broke out after police raided a gay bar in New York City. The impact of these riots reverberated throughout the country and are generally considered the events that sparked the gay liberation movement.
As we approach this anniversary, it is worth taking stock of what has been accomplished and what has yet to be achieved—specifically for those at the intersections of race, religion, and non-conforming gender identities within the LGBTQI community. Cristela Guerra, arts and culture reporter for The ARTery, joins a panel discussion with journalists, organizers and leaders as they identify what needs to occur—on a national level to a local level—and what needs to change—from cultural shifts to policy—to manifest a socially just and equitable society.
