About Shoulders to Stand On
Throughout its history, Rochester, New York has been a powerful voice for dignity and civil rights. Even before the days of Susan B. Anthony and Frederick Douglass, the region was built on the quest of people seeking to better their lives with opportunities to express free thought, innovation, education and worship.
Today, we stand on the shoulders of many who have made Rochester a city that celebrates diversity and has often set benchmarks for civil liberties throughout the nation. At the forefront, Rochester’s gay community has also been there – making history – championing the cause of equality and freedom for all. But, even as history is made, our story remains fragile and can be quickly lost. Visit, gayalliance.org/shoulders-about.html
The Gay Alliance of the Genesee Valley is producing an exciting and important project – Shoulders to Stand On – a documentary that will chronicle and safeguard the history of the LGBT community in the Rochester region.
