“Rise Up: Stonewall and the LGBTQ Rights Movement” Virtual Tour
Pride came with a cost. Explore Rise Up: Stonewall and the LGBTQ Rights Movement through our virtual exhibition tour and discover how the Stonewall Uprising sparked a national movement for LGBTQ+ rights across the United States and its connection to Chicago.
The exhibition blends historic images and artifacts from the movement to share the voices and tell the stories of those who took a stand for LGBTQ+ rights, including posters from Harvey Milk’s campaign for public office in San Francisco, a rainbow flag in its original colors signed by creator Gilbert Baker, and early LGBTQ+ magazine publications.
Our virtual tour includes a video presentation narrated by Chief Curator of Collections and Exhibitions, Arielle Weininger, and a live Q&A moderated by Museum personnel.
Reservations are required. Members must sign in to take advantage of their member discount.
