To commemorate PRIDE Month, the School of Medicine and Dentistry Office of Equity and Inclusion is hosting a screening of the documentary “Shoulders to Stand On.” It will take place on Saturday, June 26, 2021, at 3 pm at The Little Theatre.
Beginning with a small group of students and the formation of the Gay Liberation Front at the University of Rochester, “Shoulders to Stand On” reveals a largely unknown and undocumented history of Rochester’s LGBTQ+ community and its influences across the nation.
Audiences are engaged through very personal stories, a journey that celebrates New York’s oldest gay newspaper, the first openly gay candidate elected to public office in NY, a fight for federal funding, the first city in New York to pass a domestic partnership policy and more recently the passage of same-sex marriage in New York.
