Just because Pride Month is long over doesn’t mean touting our gay history has to stop. Museum of the City of New York keeps the good vibes going with Gay Rights in the 1960s and Today, a panel discussion linking the Stonewall Riots with the inequalities felt by gays under Mayor John V. Lindsay. One of the stars of the panel is Dick Leitsch, president of the New York chapter of the Mattachine Society at the time of its famous “sip-in”—the protest that changed the law against gays drinking together in bars. Also on the panel is famed historian David Carter, author of Stonewall: The Riots That Sparked the Gay Revolution, the book that inspired the new documentary, Stonewall Uprising.
