Upper Manhattan LGBTQ History: Arts and Community

NoMAA, whose work is at the intersection of culture and community, is bringing together a panel to begin an exploration of Upper Manhattan LGBTQ history.  We begin this exploration in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Rebellion in Lower Manhattan with events happening throughout New York City, the Metro Area, and the world, and we intend this event to contribute to ongoing community-building in Upper Manhattan.
