ANNOUNCING the 2019 “50th Anniversary of Stonewall” Rochester Community Calendar

by Evelyn Bailey

The Anthony Mascioli Rainbow Dialogues has included on its website the 50th Anniversary of Stonewall Rochester Community Calendar.  This is an interactive calendar where individuals, organizations, theater groups, musical groups, reading groups, school groups, archives, and libraries can submit events celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Stonewall.  Once submitted, the event will be reviewed and then posted on the calendar.

As our community approaches the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall rebellion, it is crucial that we honor its impact and legacy. As part of the Rainbow Dialogues, the 50th Anniversary of Stonewall Rochester Community Calendar will act as a central location for events committed to sharing the history, knowledge, labor, and record of our community.

The Rainbow Dialogues is a series of community building conversations demonstrating how LGBTQ history and archival documents from the past are relevant for people today. The Dialogues reference and contextualize LGBTQ life in Rochester against the backdrop of local and national social justice issues.

The Out Alliance Shoulders to Stand On Program’s 8th Initiative, the Rainbow Dialogues is presented by the Out Alliance in partnership with the Rochester Public Library Local History and Genealogy Division, the Friends and Foundation of the Rochester Public Library (FFRPL), and ImageOut, Rochester’s globally recognized LGBTQ Film Festival with support from Humanities New York, LGBT Fund for Greater Rochester, and with additional input from Brockport faculty as well as community volunteers.
