June is Pride month, and this year it’s a big one, as many institutions and organizations are looking back at the history of the LGBTQ movement as we approach the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots, and the first NYC Pride Rally that was held one month later in 1969. We’ll have a separate guide coming up with details about the big annual parades & marches taking place, but below find some other events to drop by throughout the month.
Art after Stonewall, 1969-1989 @ Leslie-Lohman Museum in SoHo and New York University Grey Art Gallery
This exhibition, spanning two galleries, features over 150 works that chronicle the 50 years of the LGBTQ movement following Stonewall. Works by visual and performance artists like Holly Hughes, Robert Mapplethorpe, and Andy Warhol will be on view.
