Rainbow warriors unite! Celebrate the 50th anniversary of Stonewall
June 29, 2019 @ 2:00 pm
Get energised by history and build the resistance today
Radical Women will celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall rebellion in New York’s Greenwich Village, which began in the early hours of 28 June 1969 and lasted for days. We will look at the conditions that ignited this militant and internationalist queer upsurge and get to the source of homophobia and transphobia. We’ll discuss why the persecution of queers is on the rise today, alongside the growth of global fascist and nationalist forces. We’ll share ideas about what’s needed to win the world that those inspired by Stonewall were fighting for. Alison Thorne, socialist feminist author and theorist, union delegate, advocate for transgender rights and 40-year LGBTIQ liberation veteran, will kick off the discussion. All genders welcome.
Hearty winter lunch at 1:30 pm for a $10 donation
Discussion kicks off at 2 pm
