Event description

Description

The Columbus State Community College Humanities Department presents "Voices in the Street."

On June 28th, 1969, members of the LGBTQ+ community stood their ground and fought back at a New York bar called the Stonewall Inn. The events of that night gave rise to the modern gay rights movement and forever changed how sexual orientation was viewed in America.

Voices in the Street: Stonewall at 50 is a collaborative effort combining photographs, video, audio, historic content, and live performance. Audiences will be transported to the night of the riots with an excerpt from Street Theatre, experience a recreation of the famous speech from Dr. Henry Anonymous, and witness the coming of age from a man who shares a birthday with the anniversary of Stonewall in an excerpt from The Night Larry Kramer Kissed Me.


*The event is for mature audiences*
