The Stonewall Experience

What REALLY happened that night at
The Stonewall Inn in Greenwich Village?
Was it planned? Who was there?

Robert “Bert” Coffman can answer all these questions and more… HE WAS THERE.

Bert, one of only four surviving original bar patrons from that night, will be presenting the Stonewall Experience. A moment in time that tilted the world on its axis and moved it toward equality.

Professor Greg Rabb, in cooperation with The Western New York Anti Violence Project, along with the support of The Stonewall Democrats of WNY, PFLAG, Spectrum Transgender Support Group, and The Zappalorti Society is OVER THE RAINBOW PROUD to bring Robert “Bert” Coffman to Buffalo to tell the tale of a group of happy go lucky bar patrons that established the mecca of National LGBTQ Equality.

Thursday, Sep 27, at The Bulger Communication Center, 215 North, Buffalo State College, 630pm.
Seating is limited to 250... Refreshments served. Q&A too!

Presented as a part of the WNYAVP Series;
History From The Mouths of The Makers

We are proud to co-sponsor this march and the cause of the young people who need safety from gun violence.

Transgender individuals have given and are giving honourable service in the various branches of the US military. Today's executive order banning them from further service we hold to be needless, pointless, cruel, and a cheap shot at good people. They have served; POTUS 45 has not. For shame! 🏳️‍🌈 🇺🇸 🏳️‍🌈

It's on. Stand with the LGBTQ community, whether you are part of it, or an ally. People faith, clergy, this is a travesty of faith -- to legalize discrimination and call it religious freedom. We must not accept it; we must not tolerate it; we must not let them them think they speak for us!

Lafayette Square, in front of the Central Library, 12:00 noon, tomorrow, Thursday May 4, 2017.
