(view on google maps)

The social revolution commonly known as Pride has deep connections to Kansas, and today more Kansans and their communities are welcoming their LGBTQ neighbors and friends. The events at Stonewall Inn in Greenwich Village in 1969 galvanized a generation to stand up for their civil rights. Kansans contributed to this early history, including the design of the iconic rainbow flag. This talk will trace early struggles to gain equality in rights for LGBTQ individuals and today's broad acceptance of Pride in rural Kansas. Presented by Brandon West.

This presentation is part of "21st Century Civics," a collection of resources that invite Kansans to participate in community discussions and learn more about the history of American democracy and the shared responsibilities of citizenship.

Sponsored by: Wichita-Sedgwick County Historical Museum
