The Newseum continues its programming series related to its newest exhibit, “Rise Up: Stonewall and the LGBTQ Rights Movement,” with its latest program, “Religious Freedom and LGBTQ Rights: Finding Common Ground.”
The program centers around the new book, “Religious Freedom, LGBT Rights, and the Prospects for Common Ground,” which assembles impactful voices from the faith, LGBTQ advocacy, legal and academic communities.
The book offers a 360-degree view of culture-war conflicts around faith and sexuality from diverse views including the Human Rights Campaign, American Civil Liberties Union, the National Association of Evangelicals and Catholic and Latter-day Saints churches.
Kristina Arriaga, president of the Oxford Society for Law and Religion, will moderate the conversation.
The program is the latest in a series of events marking the 50th anniversary of the June 1969 police raid of New York’s Stonewall Inn and the protests that inspired the modern gay liberation movement. The Newseum’s newest exhibit, “Rise Up,” explores what happened at Stonewall and how it gave rise to a 50-year fight for civil rights for LGBTQ Americans.
