October is LGBTQ History Month! This year, GAAMC is teaming up with Roxbury Public Library to produce a live event to be held over Zoom. Our program will feature live and recorded segments of members of the LGBTQ community explaining significant points along the LGBTQ history timeline and how their lives were directly impacted by these events...good and bad.
If you would like to participate, we are looking for as young and diverse a group as we can find to present as accurate and broad a historical perspective as possible.
What part of our history impacted your life the most? We are looking for people who have experience with the Manny's Den Case of 1967, Stonewall Riots of 1969, the AIDS epidemic, Don't Ask - Don't Tell, and issues related specifically to LGBTQ life in New Jersey, such as changes to NJ's Law Against Discrimination, etc.
Send an email to [email protected] if you would like to participate. Because we have only enough time for 5 or 6 topics, we may not be able to include you in our live broadcast, but may be able to include your piece in our new website, which is currently in development.
