Stonewall’s HERO Awards honor Sen. Diane Feistein, Secretary of State Debra Bowen, Planned Parenthood’s Susan Dunlap, and Hon. Cynthia Loo — Augsut 25th
Rev. Irene Monroe: Because of the bleaching of the Stonewall Riots, the beginnings of LGBTQ movement post-Stonewall is an appropriation of a black, brown, trans, and queer liberation narrative. And it is the deliberate visible absence of these black, brown, and yellow LGBTQ people that makes it harder, if not nearly impossible, for LGBTQ communities to build trusted coalitions with white LGBTQ communities.
