Free

The LGBTQ+ Action Group of St. Ann & the Holy Trinity Church invites you to Stonewall 55: Legacy Without Limits, a Pride Month extravaganza and community event. Join St. Ann’s in honoring the past, embracing the present, and shaping the future of the LGBTQ+ movement.

The evening will begin with a slideshow of photographs of the era taken by Village Voice photographer Fred McDarrah, followed by a performance by drag artist Dev Doee.

Explore the legacy of Stonewall with a panel moderated by Kay Turner, historian, folklorist, and Queer Studies professor, and featuring Ben Garcia, Executive Director of the American LGBTQ+ Museum; Suhaly Bautista-Carolina, Director of Public Programs and Partnerships at the American LGBTQ+ Museum; and Riot Mueller, United Methodist Church pastor and LGBTQ Religious Archives Network staff member.

After an encore performance by Dev Doee, we will honor Mickey Heller of the Brooklyn Pride organization and the members of the first-ever LGBTQ+ Caucus of the NYC Council. A set by the magnificent indie pop trio BETTY will lift our spirits and round out the celebration.
