Reclaiming Stonewall: A Forum at 50 – June 25, 2019

NEW YORK, NY — June 28, 2019 — Anniversaries are occasions for remembrance—and for reckoning. They offer us the opportunity to reflect critically on where we come from, where we are, and where we go from here. On the 50th anniversary of Stonewall, The Nation invited a remarkable group of LGBTQ activists, artists, and academics to reflect on its many legacies.

“We even disagree about what to call it: a riot, an uprising, or a rebellion—or the beginning of a revolution?,” says Timothy Patrick McCarthy, the guest editor of the forum. “We may well be debating these matters for another 50 (or 500) years, but this much we do know: Stonewall packed a punch and made an indelible mark on future generations of LGBTQ activism.”

These articles are the first installation of The Nation’s “Reclaiming Stonewall” Forum:

On the 50th anniversary of Stonewall, The Nation invited a remarkable group of dozens of LGBTQ activists, artists, and academics to reflect on its many legacies. Today, The Nation concludes its week-long forum, “Reclaiming Stonewall,” guest-edited by Timothy Patrick McCarthy.

“Stonewall shows us what fighting back looked like in an era when state power was hostile and the wider world unmoved at best and bigoted at worst,” write The Nation editors. “Contemplating such fundamental threats again today, LGBTQ people can return to Stonewall’s lessons of rebellion and resistance. Solidarity matters. Explosive confrontations can be the crucible of a long, hard struggle. Defiance, exuberance, and bravery can change the course of history.”
