'Illegal to be You: Gay History Beyond Stonewall'
From: 10:00 AM to 5:30 PM
In June 1969, LGBTQ+ community members resisted a police raid at the Stonewall Inn, a bar in lower Manhattan. The museum will mark this 50th anniversary with a display featuring objects from its collections that put the history of that memorable event within a larger and longer experience of being gay.
About the Artifact Walls: Artifact walls highlight the depth and breadth of the collections in hundreds of linear feet of glass-front cases lining the center of each floor. They reflect the museums core mission to collect, study, and exhibit objects from our nations rich and diverse history.
