The first “Stonewall New York Experience” is launching at Stonewall National Museum Archives and Library in Fort Lauderdale on June 1, 2024. This immersive “Stonewall IN Stonewall ” exhibit kicks off Pride Month with a time-travel experience to June 28, 1969, just hours before the historic Stonewall Riots that ignited the global LGBTQ+ human rights movement. Visitors will be transported to the gritty, historic Stonewall Inn in New York City. The museum will feature a ‘smoky’ bar setting, 1969 hits like “Aquarius/Let the Sunshine In ” playing from a jukebox, and a virtual bartender in drag discussing life on Christopher Street. Guests can shoot pool while listening to a virtual bar patron vent about the LGBTQ+ community’s struggles in 1969 and the sanctuary provided by bars like the Stonewall Inn. Interactive elements include photo ops with a Stonewall New York neon sign and naming opportunities, where visitors can have their names or loved ones’ names displayed in the exhibit. The experience runs from June 1 to September 2, 2024, and will become a traveling exhibition in the Fall of 2024, aiming to visit all 50 states over the next decade. So if you can’t visit Fort Lauderdale, visit, to find out when the exhibition is visiting your nearby city.
