“STONEWALL OUTLOUD”— Bringing Stories to Life


Bringing Stories to Life

Amos Lassen

What happened that night in June at the Stonewall Inn has become legendary and the time has come for us to get the real facts about that what really happened from those who were actually there. We do know that the first recorded archival accounts by those who were there did not take place until twenty years later with the audio documentary, “Remembering Stonewall.” Now StoryCorps has preserved the historic accounts of those events and this year began an effort to record the stories of the LGBTQ community through its app.

Thirty years after the firsthand stories were recorded, filmmaker Fenton Bailey has brought them to life in “Stonewall Outloud.” Narrated by RuPaul, the film honors the past by bringing it into the present and reminds everyone how vital  and important the actions taken that night became to the LGBTQ Community.

We can now listenito the words of those who had paved the way for them” as some of today’s most recognizable LGBTQ community members (Lance Bass, Daniel Franzese, Michael Turchin, Charlie Carver, Laith Ashley and more) channel their spirits. More news about this will be forthcoming.
