      In Search of Stonewall

      The year 1994 marked the 25th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots, and it was also the year in which a new journal, The Harvard Gay & Lesbian Review (known since 1998 as The Gay & Lesbian Review/Worldwide), published its first issue. In honor of its own 25th anniversary, the journal has released a book, In Search of Stonewall: The Riots at 50, The Gay & Lesbian Review at 25 (G & LR Books, 2019) collecting Stonewall-related articles published in the Review over the past quarter century. Join three contributors to the collection, Jewelle Gomez, Will Roscoe and Eve Goldberg, for a panel discussion about Stonewall scholarship and for readings from the collection. Copies of In Search of Stonewall will be available for purchase and signing. PANELISTS Eve Goldberg is a writer and filmmaker who lives in northern California. Her films include “What Ever Happened to Hazel Scott?”, “Dorothy Healey: An American Red” and “Lori and Cathy Get Married.” Her writing has been published in The Gay & Lesbian Review, American Popular Culture, Hippocampus and The Rumpus. Jewelle Gomez, a writer and playwright who’s known as the “foremother of Afrofuturism,” is the author of The Gilda Stories (1991; expanded edition, 2016) and other books. Her stories have been anthologized in over 100 collections. Will Roscoe, Ph.D., is the author of The Zuni Man-Woman (1991) and Jesus and the Shamanic Tradition of Same-Sex Love (2004), both of which received Lambda Literary Awards.
