Roc Rainbow Rally: Celebrating Activism Across Generations

Roc Rainbow Rally: Celebrating Activism Across Generations In-Person

6:00pm–7:00pm, Barbara J. Burger iZone’s Kessler Forum, Rush Rhees Library

Rochester’s LGBTQ+ community has a long and rich history of activism that we can learn and benefit from as we try to create a more welcoming and inclusive future. This intergenerational panel will celebrate and share activism and advocacy through discussion of past experiences and selection of digitized physical objects that represent their activism and advocacy.
