La Primera Parada (The First Parade), Chicago's Stonewall Moments
2019-09-13

facebook twitter google +1 reddit email


( Chicago, IL ) The Puerto Rican Arts Alliance joins the nation and the world in commemorating 50 Years of Stonewall with the exhibition La Primera Parada ( The First Parade ): Chicago's Stonewall Moments. The Stonewall Riots marked a turning point in American society and in this exhibit; we explore its impact in Chicago's LGBTQ communities of color. La Primera Parada conveys the idea that we all have a defining 'Stonewall Moment' in our journey of self-identification—a moment where we say "Quiet No More" to proudly walk out in revelation of who we are and what we stand for.

La Primera Parada recounts events and anecdotes of the first group of Latin@ gays and lesbians who demanded space in their community parades to proudly walk in the Bud Billiken, Mexican, and Puerto Rican Parades. With this exhibit we celebrate the first Chicago queer people, trans women, drag queens, the boys, the dykes, and people of color who fought back and out of the closet to proudly say "I'm Black, I'm Chicano, I'm Boricua, I'm queer and this is my parade."

The Puerto Rican Arts Alliance cordially invites the community to the Opening Reception of the exhibition on Saturday Sept. 21, 2019 - 6:30 to 9 p.m. at PRAA Center, 3000 N Elbridge Ave ( parking available at US Bank Employee lot on Oakdale St ). This is a Free Admission family event open to the Chicago community. After the opening reception the exhibition will be in display during regular hours Monday to Friday: 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. or by scheduling an appointment to archivo@praachicago.org .

This exhibition is coordinated by PRAA's El Archivo: Chicago & Midwest Archive Project in partnership with the Association of Latinos/as Motivating Action ( ALMA ). For more information go to www.praachicago.org
