Presented by Rick Miller, Board President of the Des Moines Pride Center
Sunday, October 6, 11 a.m., Channing Hall
Rick Miller presents “Evolution of the Revolution: 50 Years Since Stonewall”, which explores and links some of the events in Iowa and the nation involved in the struggle for LGBTQ+ rights from 1969 to 2019. This presentation will provide stories, artifacts, and images of some of those who spoke out, stood up, and sacrificed to help attain the LGBTQ+ rights many experience today. Rather than attempting to provide a complete or comprehensive chronicle of all LGBTQ+ history and historical figures, this presentation instead provides snapshots and highlights as it weaves together Iowa and US LGBTQ+ history during the last 50 years. It spotlights in a unique way the progress on two of the many fronts in the evolving debate over and struggle for LGBTQ+ rights.
