The Center in New York, NY, has launched Stonewall Forever, a project to find, preserve and share the untold stories of the Stonewall Riots of 1969 and the early years of the LGBTQ rights movement.
The 50th anniversary of the Riots will be noted next year.
According to the project's website, "Stonewall Forever is actively acquiring materials to help tell the diverse stories of the Stonewall Riots of 1969 and the surrounding years of activism from 1968-1971. This growing collection includes photographs, films, interviews, oral histories, protest materials, Pride memorabilia, personal effects and unpublished writings, including letters and diaries, that help to illuminate the lived experience of this historic period."
