Rise Up: Politics and the Gay Rights Movement
Sen. Tammy Baldwin (D-Wisc.) and former Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) appear together for a conversation on legislative and societal challenges and victories that helped shape the long struggle for LGBTQ rights.

Joshua Johnson, host of NPR’s daily program “1A,” moderated the conversation.

The program marks the launch of a series of events leading up to the 50th anniversary of the June, 1969 police raid of the Stonewall Inn and the protests that inspired the modern gay liberation movement. In March, 2019, the Newseum will open its new exhibit, “Rise Up: Stonewall and the Gay Rights Movement” which will explore how activists have used their First Amendment freedoms to fight for an end to discrimination.
