AARP celebrates Stonewall

Posted on 24 Jun 2009 at 2:56pm

Okay, I guess I shouldn’t have been surprised by this. But I was.

I just got an e-mail with the subject line: “AARP marks 40th anniversary of Stonewall Riots.” The e-mail informed me that AARP has just launched “a multiplatform media campaign consisting of exclusive new online, television, radio and print content that includes contributions from many of the nation’s most prominent and outspoken members of the LGBT communities” to commemorate the Stonewall rebellion, “a defining moment for the Lesbian, Gay, Bi-sexual and Transgender (LGBT) movement.”

The interactive Web site includes interviews with prominent LGBT leaders over the age of 50, like Martina Navratilova, Bishop Gene Robinson, Frank Kameny, Joe Solmonese SAGE Director Michael Adams, Kate Clinton, Sabrina Sojourner, national PFLAG President John Cepek, Hilary Rosen and more.

AARP TV will broadcast an episode of its national lifestyle program “My Generation” called “Stonewall: Milestone Remembered” and AARP Radio will feature an interview with Frank Kameny.

There’s more. You’ll just have to go to the Web site and check it out.
