Stonewall warriors on Friday 28th June 2019

Celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots

28 June 1969 is the most important day in LGBT+ history. On that day, a glorious assembly of Stonewall Warriors – rent boys, butch lesbians and drag queens – fought back when police raided the Stonewall Inn in Greenwich Village. They started a riot that lasted three nights and kick-started the fight for LGBT+ rights around the world. But the story didn’t all start in 1969…

This musical and dramatic celebration will take you back to 1969, and through many other eras, where more Warriors left behind touching testimonies of same-sex love. The Fourth Choir will bring hidden LGBT+ histories to life, with hauntingly beautiful music by composers such as 12th century nun Hildegarde of Bingen, and 20th century composers Benjamin Britten, jazz legend Billy Strayhorn, and Rufus Wainwright. Extraordinary, real-life stories – of a woman put on trial in 18th century Germany for marrying another woman, history’s most famous bisexual love triangle, a composer who liked to wear drag, and the story of an early HIV survivor – will be retold by actors.

Open to 14s and over (under 16s to be accompanied by an adult 18+). Photo id required.
