On June 28, 1969, New York City police raided the Stonewall Inn, a small gay bar in Greenwich Village. While not an uncommon occurrence, this time was different . . . the community fought back. The Stonewall Riots are widely seen as one of the most pivotal moments in LGBTQ history. In collaboration with the New York City Gay Men’s Chorus and the Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles, HMC presents, Quiet No More: a Choral Celebration of Stonewall, a new work that commemorates the 50th Anniversary of the beginning of the Gay Rights movement. Join us as we celebrate the vast legacy and worldwide revolution that rose from those six tumultuous days in June as we sing for our lives and the lives of others, every day.

Saturday, March 23, 2019, 8:00 p.m. and Sunday, March 24, 2019, 4:00 p.m. at The Folly Theater.

Pre-Show Talk Featuring Stuart Hinds of the Gay and Lesbian Archives

Thirty minutes prior to each performance of Stonewall 50: All of Us at the Folly Theater on March 23 and 24, Stuart Hinds, Assistant Dean for Special Collections and Archives at UMKC, and the Curator of the GLAMA (Gay & Lesbian Archives of Mid-America) Collection, will discuss the surprisingly pivotal role of Kansas City in the national struggle for gay and lesbian civil rights, all taking place before the 1969 Stonewall uprising. He will also touch on Kansas City’s very active social scene during the same period. This interesting talk is offered at no additional charge to those who have purchased a concert ticket.
