Friday Doc Pick: Stonewall Uprising

Next month we’re co-hosting a Salon with the NYC-based salon series Queer Memoir. A great line-up of queer and LGBT Philly theatre artists, activists, writers and storytellers (including Slam faves R. Eric Thomas and Rae Drew) will tell stories from their lives around the theme ”sticks and stones.”
Who’s to say if such an event would be possible had the Stonewall riots of 1969 never took place? Look back at this epic event when the new doc Stonewall Uprising hits the Ritz at the Bourse this weekend for an exclusive engagement. Watch the trailer here.
