Celebrating Stonewall 50


2019 marks the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising, a defining moment in the history of the LGBTQ civil rights movement. Boston Pride plans to raise awareness of this anniversary through exhibitions, public discussions, and other events, acting in collaboration with local community-based organizations. It is important that, throughout Greater Boston, community people observe this milestone in our progress toward full equality.

Please join us in raising awareness of Stonewall 50 in Greater Boston and Massachusetts. Boston Pride has formed a sub-committee to take the lead in organizing local events that highlight Stonewall and its impact in changing the course of history. The Stonewall 50 sub-committee plans to meet on Tuesday, October 30, 2018 at 6:30 PM at the Boston Pride Office, 12 Channel Street in the Seaport District, to brainstorm ideas for commemorating this anniversary. Please join us and participate in commemorating Stonewall 50.

Please respond by email to [email protected] if you are interested in the Stonewall 50 initiative. And we look forward to meeting you on October 30th.
