Relating With The Stonewall Riot Survivors!

Relating with Damon and Truett 
June 29th, 53 Christopher Street

Jerry Hoose and Tommy Schmidt were there on June 28th, 1969 at the historic Stonewall riots. Now, over 40 years later, Jerry and Tommy, who were both featured in the documentary "Stonewall Uprising", will make another appearance at The Stonewall Inn, as our special guest they will discuss the night that changed the face of America forever.

Swing by The Stonewall Inn (53 Christopher Street) on June 29th, meet Jerry and Tommy, and hear about the LGBTQ movements that have happened over the years; however, it all started at The Stonewall Inn with brave young people like Jerry and Tommy. Their stories are amazing and very inspirational!

Also we'll have a special performance by the very talented Stonewall Sensation winner, Erik Sisco.

Our guest group for the evening will be the 'Gay Coaches Collective'.

The show's schedule:
6:30-7:00pm: Socializing and drinks
7:00-8:00pm: Discussion with Jerry Hoose and Tommy Schmidt
8:00pm: Erik Sisco will perform "I am what I am" and "Over the rainbow"

After the talk show and performances we will have a Stonewall post-pride party so everyone can meet Jerry and Tommy.
