LGBTQ Equality Library Exhibit
The fight for equality is a long road to travel and it’s even harder when the fight is for LGBTQ equality.
Last week, Lock Haven University’s Stevenson Library in Pennsylvania opened a viewing for the public on LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer or anyone who is questioning) rights, with different historical events on display highlighting the many issues that members of the LGBTQ community face.
The exhibit is premiering in 2019 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Bar raid and riots. The Stonewall riots were a series of spontaneous, violent demonstrations by members of the gay community against a police raid that took place in the early morning hours of June 28, 1969, at the Stonewall Inn in the Greenwich Village neighborhood of Manhattan, New York City.
