Next Thursday join The History Project for their latest installment from the Out of the Archives Series. A free series of intimate events featuring focused topics, interesting discussions and selected photos /documents from the History Project Archives. This program features local author, Robert Fieseler (shown above).
Thursday, May 3rd || 6:00 – 8:00 PM
The History Project at 29 Stanhope St.
While writing Tinderbox: The Untold Story of the Up Stairs Lounge Fire and the Rise of Gay Liberation, author Robert Fieseler spent much time and effort recreating the context of “the closet” of 1973 – a societal condition that now puzzles LGBTQ+ youth, as well as many allies who prefer to overlook their past attitudes. Fieseler will discuss this part of his writing process, and his research into the fire and its ramifications.
Doors and reception at 6:00PM, talk begins at 6:30, followed by a short Q&A. This talk will be in The Geo. Johnson Room, on the 2nd floor of 29 Stanhope St.
