LGBT Activism

LGBT Activism

In this session students will look at a key moment in the history of LGBT activism, the Stonewall Riots in 1969, and the role of young people in the protests. Using a combination of videos and sources written at the time of the riots, they will consider why these events occurred and what motivated the different actors. It will introduce them to the issue of LGBT youth’s overrepresentation in the homeless population, and ask them to consider the means of tackling this.
