In an attempt to rightfully acknowledge the leaders of the Stonewall Riots as well as celebrating a legacy of powerful and influential Black and Brown queers who have created resistance, communities, and cultures regardless of police brutality, racism, transphobia, classism, and homophobia, Proud Colors is hosting our first dance: STONEWALL WAS A RIOT! This dance is explicitly a celebration of ourselves as queer people of color who can celebrate our histories and locate ourselves in a space that is free from the policing of white homonormative queerness.
