Gay Is Good Exhibit Opening at Gerber/Hart
From a press release
2018-03-26

facebook twitter pin it google +1 reddit email


"Gay is Good: Homophile Activism before Stonewall" will open on Saturday, April 21 at 7 p.m.. Tickets start at $10.

Introductory Remarks will be made by John D'Emilio. The opening will feature a brief discussion by exhibit curators, remarks by LGBTQ historian John D'Emilio, and wine/softdrinks and desserts. During the event, attendees will have the opportunity to participate in a silent auction for art and other items. All proceeds will support the operations of the Gerber/Hart Library and Archives.

When we think of LGBTQ activism in the United States we often think of the Stonewall Riots of 1969 as the spark that created a movement. In reality the events at the Stonewall Inn were an explosion of radical activism that has been building in the country since the 1920's and had already become a national movement. These pre-Stonewall activism organizations are called "homophile" groups and the Gay is Good exhibit, which will run through September, will detail the beginning of the homophile movement in the US, its peak during the ECHO and NACHO conferences, and the eventual decline after the Stonewall Riots.

Opening Program Tickets: General Admission: $10

Program Supporter: $100 ( 5 tickets and recognition at program )

Program Underwriter: $250 ( 10 tickets and recognition at program )

Purchase tickets: form.jotform.com/80803752322148 .
