From the Shadows to the Sunlight

This is part 1 of 18 in a video playlist series. In June of 2008 several individuals who were active in the gay liberation movement of the late sixties and early seventies held a panel at the Center to share their experience. It was sponsored by Services and Advocacy for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Elders (SAGE). The program called 'From the Shadows to the Sunlight' focused on the first year of the LGBT movement from the Stonewall riots of 1969 to the Christopher Street Gay Liberation Day March in 1970. This video excerpt was produced by the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Community Center of New York City.

I came across this site by chance and by chance, one of the people in this film, Michael Lavery, was born and raised in Franklin, PA. And not by chance, I am that Michael Lavery.
