Stonewall 40 Panels Today & Tomorrow

In honor of the 40th anniversary of the Stonewall riots which marked the start of the modern GLBT rights movement, there are two very special panels being held in New York this week.
Members of the Gay Liberation Front, which organized the first gay pride march in 1970 on the 1st anniversary of the riots, will be invovled in two panels; one at the 42nd Street NY Public Library this afernoon at 6pm and one at the Gay Lesbian Community Center Thursday at 6pm. There will be plenty of parties and dances and merriment this weekend so why not bone-up (!) on a little history before the celebration kicks in.
