Stonewall National Museum & Archives is Going to New York City
Stonewall National Museum & Archives is going to New York City.
On June 29 and 30, 2013, SNMA will continues a national tour commemorating its 40th Anniversary.
On Saturday at 2 p.m., officials from SNMA will make a special presentation at the historic Stonewall Inn at 53 Christopher Street. That’s where a police raid and ensuing riots in 1969 served to galvanize a movement.
The following day on Sunday, SNMA board members, staff, volunteers and supporters will proudly march in the Pride March, which is said to attract an estimated 1.6 million attendees.
Participants will gather at 11 a.m. for the march line-up at 36th Street and Fifth Avenue, and the march begins at noon.
The step-off of the parade is at the intersection of Christopher & Greenwich Streets.
These two events provide SNMA an opportunity to broaden its reach and strengthen national public awareness of its mission to document, explore and honor the LGBT past, while striving to inform, inspire and engage this and future generations.
Please plan to attend one or both of these events.
RSVPs are encouraged to firstname.lastname@example.org — it’s how SNMA will prepare enough t-shirts for the event.
For questions, please call Stonewall National Museum & Archives Executive Director, David Jobin at 954-763-8565.
