Watch & Learn: LGBT+ History Month
Wednesday 24 February 2021, 7pm - 8pm
In honour of LGBT+ History Month, we are hosting a watchparty event in order to learn more about the global application of LGBT+ inequalities & issues??????
We will be watching the 22 minute Documentary "Stonewall Forever - A Documentary about the Past, Present and Future of Pride" (2019) https://youtu.be/GjRv7dJTync and then having a discussion of the topics raised & learn from the documentary and each other to be better activists.
Description of the documentary:
"Stonewall Forever is a documentary from NYC’s LGBT Community Center directed by Ro Haber. The film brings together voices from over 50 years of the LGBTQ rights movement to explore queer activism before, during and after the Stonewall Riots.
The history of the Stonewall Riots is equally as cherished as it is charged. There are questions of who was there, who “threw the first brick” and who can claim Stonewall. This film doesn’t answer these questions but instead it aims to expand the story of Stonewall by including more voices in its telling.
Stonewall Forever brings together queer activists, experienced and new, to look at the movement for LGBTQ equality before, during and after Stonewall. It highlights trans people, people of color and homeless people who were at the forefront of the movement, and who have often been erased from the narrative. It explores how the activism of today stands on the shoulders of the activists who have come before. And it asks us all to recognize the legacy of Stonewall that remains today, when the struggle for queer rights is far from over."
