Event description

Description

2019 marks the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots. The Lakeside Pride Chamber Ensembles present an afternoon of music in honor of Marsha P. “Pay It No Mind” Johnson. Marsha was the trans woman who threw the first brick at the riots in 1969. In celebration of her contributions to the community, this concert is in her honor. Lakeside Pride will also be joined by ResonaTe, Chicago's transgender choir. Join us for performances of music written or arranged by people of color and transgender/genderqueer individuals.

This season, Lakeside Pride Music Ensembles is honoring the legacy of the Stonewall Riots. As we approach the 50th anniversary of the riots in June 2019, our concert series will celebrate, in reverse chronological order, the landmark events that have shaped the LGBTQA community since Stonewall. Nearly a dozen ensembles will present 6 concerts this season, celebrating marriage equality, LGBTQA veterans, AIDS activists, New York City as the spark of the modern equality movement, and the influence of the Latinx community. The season will culminate with an inspiring and entertaining retrospective of the riots themselves, featuring performances of first-hand accounts from those who had the courage to stand up and fight that week in June 1969.
