Fifty years ago history was made. This year we celebrate the night of the Stonewall Riots, which catapulted the LGBTQ movement. Many in the community know of this moment in history. Others are learning the story for the first time. Greta Schiller and the team behind the restored documentary, Beyond Stonewall, talk about life for the LGBTQ community before the stone was thrown in front of that landmark bar.
We celebrate another year of amazing role models in the community. The Vincent R. Johnson Models of Hope Award will honor Neil Macernie of Albuquerque Pride, Renato Estacio-Burdick of Twist and Sidewinders, Jax Sugars of TeeN’MPower and our Community Organization honoree, Casa Q.
We also interviewed StormMiguel Florez, director of the documentary, The Whistle, exploring the lesbian community at Del Norte High School during the 80s and a special call that let others know they’re not alone.
Happy Pride everyone. Be kind to each other and praise your history.
