THE STONEWALL READER

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by a Full Cast

Contemporary Culture • 10.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

A vibrant chorus of more than 20 voices narrates this accessible anthology focusing on LGBTQ experiences before, during, and after the Stonewall uprising of 1969. Told through a diverse array of first-person narratives, interviews, articles, and more, the anthology creates a kaleidoscopic view of the early Gay Liberation movement. The cast of narrators echoes this variety, offering performances that range from smooth and journalistic to intimate and emotive. Even more striking are the interviews featuring the real voices of notable figures such as Sylvia Rivera and Miss Major Griffin-Gracy, who memorably declares that "history is one big lie." Overall, it's a remarkable audio experience that emphasizes the revolutionary power of LGBTQ voices and provides an invaluable record of a community that refuses to be silenced. R.A.H.
