The Stonewall Protests is a grassroots collective that centers Black trans experience. The collective has gathered in person each week for over a year, working to create healing circles to release pain and foster joy within the community.
In this conversation, lead organizers Qween Jean and Joel Rivera will share about their work with the collective, as well as how histories of trans protest inform their perspectives and actions. Artists are an integral part of The Stonewall Protests, and photographs are significantly documenting and amplifying the gatherings. Four photographers, Lucy B, Ryan McGinley, J Robertson, and Madison Swart will each share portraits they've taken. Then, the entire panel will consider the relationship between these striking images, the work of The Stonewall Protests, and where they hope this will lead.
This program is hosted in conjunction with the New Museum exhibition "Grief and Grievance: Art and Mourning in America."
