The riots, which originated at New York City’s Stonewall Inn, galvanized the LGBTQ community to resist police raids on gay establishments and helped spur a wave of modern LGBTQ political activism.

The tri-institutional LGBTQ Student Resource Center invites all Roadrunners, CityHawks and Lynx — as well as allies and friends — to a barbecue commemorating this important event. This June 28, join fellow students, staff and faculty members for art, games, music and guest speakers on the Tivoli Quad from 11 a.m.-2 p.m.

Attendees can RSVP online and email Steve Willich, director of the LGBTQ Student Resource Center, for more information.
