Snack Chat: Stonewall 50

Wednesday, June 12 - 2:30pm - 4:30pm
Location: Rines Auditorium
Audience: Teens, Teen Events, Parents & Teachers

On the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots, Pride@PPL invites a new generation to learn about the history of the LGBTQ+ Rights Movement and create an artistic response. The finished art will hang in the Portland Public Teen Library during the month of June in conjunction with the exhibit 50 Years Since Stonewall in the Lewis Gallery and be part of a month-long Pride celebration of Stonewall history.

PPL will provide the materials and the inspiration to allow youth from all backgrounds to raise their voices and show how the history of previous generations of the LGBTQ community affects their lives today.

This program is free and open to teens ages 12-19. Youth clubs and organizations are welcome as our adult mentors who lead these groups. Otherwise: teens only.

This event is made possible by the Equity Fund of the Maine Community Foundation.

About the Series » PPL Teen Snack Chats

two overlapping blue text bubbles, one containing an image of a granola barOur goal is to bring topical and relevant conversations directly to the young people who use our library. We invite teens to share a snack and a conversation with a diverse array of passionate professionals working in the Portland community. Topics can be hyper-local all the way to global and universal — you never know where the conversation will take us. Past Snack Chat topics include “Bystander Intervention”, “Heroin”, “Dating Violence”, and “Being Muslim in America”.
