What you'll learn in this society class:

To mark the 50th anniversary of the 1969 Stonewall uprising, we present an evening of film and discussion about the lives of two singular individuals who ignited this pivotal moment in the modern LGBTQ rights movement. Stormé: The Lady of the Jewel Box (21 min, 1987) traces the life of Stormé DeLarverie, a lesbian activist rumored to have thrown the first punch at Stonewall, as well as famed Master of Ceremonies of the Jewel Box Revue, a touring company of female impersonators that started at Harlem’s Apollo Theater.  Happy Birthday, Marsha! (14 min, 2018) explores the hours before iconic transgender activist and performer Marsha P. Johnson found herself on the doorstep of history in Greenwich Village the night of June 28th, 1969.

Following the films, join us for a conversation about these two larger-than-life New York activists and the intersections between Stonewall, trans history, and queer black history in New York City with Storme's director Michelle Parkerson, Harlem historian John T. Reddick, and performance artist Rose Wood, a longtime friend of Stormé. Moderated by Jessica Green of Maysles Cinema.
