To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots, we will host a conversation featuring Matthew Riemer and Leighton Brown, creators of Instagram's @lgbt_history, and acclaimed author Garrard Conley (Boy Erased). The three authors and activists will talk about Riemer and Brown's wildly popular @lgbt_history page and their debut book, We Are Everywhere, a rich and sweeping photographic history of the Queer Liberation Movement, along with Garrard Conley's best-selling memoir. Boy Erased was adapted for the 2018 film of the same name, as well as the podcast UnErased: The History of Conversion Therapy in America. Their shared experience casts a powerful light on the LGBTQ+ community's hardships in the past, its challenges for the future, and what Stonewall means to us today.
