Stonewall 50 at New-York Historical Society commemorates the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall uprising and the dawn of the gay liberation movement with two exhibitions and a special installation. Letting Loose and Fighting Back: LGBTQ Nightlife Before and After Stonewall explores the history of LGBTQ bars, clubs, and nightlife in New York City during the second half of the 20th century. By the Force of Our Presence: Highlights from the Lesbian Herstory Archives examines lesbian lives pre- and post-Stonewall. A special installation, Say It Loud, Out and Proud: Fifty Years of Pride, showcases imagery from New York City Pride marches and other LGBTQ protests from the 1960s to the present day, as well as a timeline of milestones and objects from LGBTQ history.
