We are delighted to share that Wallace Sanders, a CALA faculty member (Spanish language), is interviewed in Stonewall Forever – a Documentary About the Past, Present, and Future of Pride.
From the documentary makers – “The history of the Stonewall Riots is equally as cherished as it is charged. There are questions of who was there, who ‘threw the first brick’ and who can claim Stonewall. This film doesn’t answer these questions but instead it aims to expand the story of Stonewall by including more voices in its telling.
Stonewall Forever, the documentary, brings together voices from over 50 years of LGBTQ activism to explore the ongoing legacy of Stonewall.
Wallace is a native New Yorker, a lifelong teacher, and a Vietnam War veteran. He was a regular at the Stonewall Inn, although he wasn’t present during the riots. He worked for New York City’s Commission on Human Rights for 18 years, where he helped pass the Gay Rights Bill in 1986.”
In the spirit of Stonewall, and for the 50th anniversary of the rebellion that ignited the modern liberation movement, Reclaim Pride will be holding a protest march along the original route of the first Christopher Street Liberation Day march in New York City, in 1970.
