LGBTQIA Week at Highline College honors the resistance 50 years later

Free events scheduled Oct. 7-11

DES MOINES, Wash. - Fifty years ago, a gay club, called the Stonewall Inn, was raided by eight New York police officers and detectives.

Fifty years ago, gay and transgender patrons were forced to produce identification and feared arrest.

Fifty years ago, the 1969 Stonewall Riots ensued as a result.

And 50 years ago, in what is widely considered to be the start of the gay rights movement, members of the LGBTQIA+ community united in solidarity to say 'enough is enough.'

Highline College's LGBTQIA Week is a series of events that coincides with National Coming Out Day on Oct. 11 and is free and open to all.

With the theme '50 Years: Still Honoring the Resistance, Transforming Our Community,' this year's ninth annual LGBTQIA Week will dive deeply into the history of the movement while also providing resources and workshops throughout the week.

Keynote Karama Blackhorn, who identifies as a Two-Spirit organizer and cultural educator, will open the week with the presentation, 'Out of the Closets, Into the Streets! Queer Activism and Coming Out 50 Years Later.' They will provide messages of healing, transforming and will explore understanding the responsibilities communities have for the next 50 years.

The week will also include the third annual Resource Fair, featuring information from more than 60 on- and off-campus groups and organizations, such as the LGBTQ Allyship, Tacoma's Rainbow Center and The Seattle Lesbian, to name a few.

Highline College is located at 2400 S 240th St, Des Moines WA. For more information on Highline College's LGBTQIA Week, visit http://lgbtqia.highline.edu/.
