Stonewall Education Project
Stonewall National Education Project is uniquely poised through its vast national network of professionals, to help eliminate barriers, stand up for and empower our young people in a time when it has never been more vital.
In response to the Orlando Pulse Nightclub tragedy on June 12, 2016, SNMA is working with the Orlando community to house artifacts from remembrance vigils and events, and display memorial art to unite our community while offering the public a meaningful and lasting cultural heritage.
The 43-year-old Stonewall Archives is a resource that is used to integrate historically-relevant, accurate, information about LGBTQ history and culture into curriculum and lesson plans, intended to provide teachers the opportunity to teach and discuss LGBTQ history.
Queer Kids by Michael Sharkey
Since 2006, New York City based portrait photographer Michael Sharkey has been photographing gay teens and young adults as part of his on-going series Queer Kids. Born out of his own struggles coming out in the 80s, Sharkey says the focus of the project, where he interviews and portrays each subject, is to give this generation a voice, one he didn’t have at their age.
