Christopher Street Tours presents: Gay Liberation & the LBGTQ+ Rights Movement
June 28 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Join the DPL and Michael Venturiello, NYC based queer historian and founder of Christopher Street Tours, for his presentation Gay Liberation & the LBGTQ+ Rights Movement: Similarities and Differences Across Generations. This 45-minute presentation discusses the similarities and differences across the fight for LGBTQ rights across generations. We’ll discuss the roots of the Gay Liberation Movement and it’s creation in the 1970s, as well as how that has transformed to what we now might call the Queer Liberation Movement. We’ll dive into parallels between each movement and share best practices and tactics that can be taken from each that relate to current-day activism. This presentation is followed by a 15 minute Q&A.
