In partnership with Seattle Pride, MoPOP celebrates the opening of Rise Up: Stonewall and the LGBTQ Rights Movement with a panel of queer icons in conversation about activism and their participation in the civil rights fights of the past. On Saturday, June 26 from 12:15 p.m. - 12:45 p.m. PT, moderator Matt Baume will share a few iconic objects with panelists Isabella L. Price, Devlyn Camp, and Kristin Russo (for example, the rainbow flag or a pair of wedding rings) and have those objects serve as inspiration for conversations about historic moments in queer history.
If you miss the virtual event with Seattle Pride on June 26, or if you just want to digest more Rise Up content from MoPOP, the icons panel will be rebroadcast as a 60-minute "Director's Cut" from 5:00 - 6:00 p.m. PT on Wednesday, July 21.
