On Saturday, June 5 at 4PM, the David M. Hunt Library in Falls Village, Connecticut, will host author Jane Fleishman whose book, The Stonewall Generation: LGBTQ Elders on Sex, Activism & Aging, shares the stories of community members who came of age around the time of the Stonewall Riots of 1969. An unapologetic depiction of queer identity and culture, and the fight for civil and human rights from the 1960s to today, the candid interviews in the book include the voices of those frequently marginalized in the mainstream narrative of LGBTQ history: people of color, transgender people, bisexual people, drag queens, and sex workers. For anyone committed to intersectional activism and social justice, The Stonewall Generation provides a much-needed resource for empowerment, education, and renewal. This event will take place outdoors in the Library’s tent.
