Anyone Going to New York this month?


In honour of the 40th anniversary of the Stonewall riots, the New York Public Library is hosting an archival exhibition called 1969: The Year of Gay Liberation:

"All of the materials for this exhibition were drawn from the LGBT collection, in the Manuscripts and Archives Division of The New York Public Library.1969: The Year of Gay Liberation will be on display at The New York Public Library’s Stephen A. Schwarzman Building at Fifth Avenue and 42nd Street from June 1, 2009 to June 30, 2009. Additionally, three related public events will be presented in June. Admission to the exhibition and programs is free."


The descriptive blurb indicates that there will be an online version of the exhibit as well, but I haven't found it yet.

If anybody goes (or finds it online), please post your comments!
