Happy Pride Month! Events to Commemorate and Celebrate Pride in and Around Brooklyn Heights

Pride Month honors the Stonewall Uprising of 1969 — the birth of the modern Queer Rights movement. In the 1950’s, Brooklyn Heights became the center of the City’s gay culture, with the first gay bar in Brooklyn, Tony Bonner’s Supper Club, opening at 80 Montague St. Read more about the Supper Club and see photos of the interior in this Patreon post by Hugh Ryan, and celebrate Pride Month at these events in and around Brooklyn Heights.

Stonewall 55: Legacy Without Limits

St. Ann & the Holy Trinity Church, 157 Montague St.

St. Ann’s LGBTQ+ Action Group invites you to Stonewall 55: Legacy Without Limits, a commemoration and celebration of the Stonewall uprising. Join St. Ann’s in honoring the past, embracing the present, and shaping the future of the LGBTQ+ movement. RSVP today!

This commemoration of the Stonewall uprising will begin with a slideshow of photographs of the era taken by Village Voice photographer Fred McDarrah, followed by a performance by drag artist Dev Doee.

We’ll explore the legacy of Stonewall with a panel moderated by Kay Turner, historian, folklorist, and Queer Studies professor, and featuring Ben Garcia, Executive Director of the American LGBTQ+ Museum; Suhaly Bautista-Carolina, Director of Public Programs and Partnerships at the American LGBTQ+ Museum; and Riot Mueller, United Methodist Church pastor and LGBTQ Religious Archives Network staff member.

After an encore performance by Dev Doee, we will honor Mickey Heller of the Brooklyn Pride organization and the members of the first-ever LGBTQ+ Caucus of the NYC Council. A set by the magnificent pop/rock trio BETTY will lift our spirits and round out the celebration.

You won’t want to miss this! The event is FREE and open to all, so bring your friends and neighbors. RSVP online.

    Gay Pride Parade 2011. What a fun day.

    Great video, great song, great parade. And remember that this took place just two days after Andrew Cuomo signed into law the Marriage Equality Act. This is not that long ago, but something makes it almost seem like "the good old days."
