3:00pm [3:00pm] Nathan E. Cohen Memorial Lecture- 50 Years after Stonewall
Description:
The Nathan E. Cohen Lecture Series invites you to: LGBT Rights in the United States: A Retrospective 50 Years after Stonewall Presented by Dale Rosenberg The riot at a gay bar called The Stonewall Inn, in New York’s Greenwich Village, in June of 1969, is often marked as the beginning of the modern gay rights movement. Certainly life for LGBT people in the U.S. has changed a great deal in the fifty years since then. LGBT people throughout the country have fought to obtain equal rights, and had great successes, along with significant setbacks. The AIDS epidemic increased homophobia but also made gay men, in particular, more visible. Gay celebrities – whether in the closet or out – made variety in sexual orientation more visible. Well known transgender people brought the issue of gender identity to the forefront. The fight for equal access to military careers and equal marriage rights made the struggle visible nationwide. How did LGBT people achieve the rights they’ve won? Who were their allies and who were enemies? Who switched sides along the way? How has the Trump Administration tried to roll back LGBT rights and how successful have they been? What has the role of organized religion been, on both sides of this struggle? Come to this Nathan E. Cohen Lecture on November 3rd as Dale Rosenberg, Jewish Educator and sometime LGBT activist, weaves recent history and personal experience together to illuminate the struggle for equal rights since Stonewall. This program is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served. For further information go to: www.keenesynagogue.org or call 603-352-6747
