This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall uprising in New York City, an event that many view as the start of the LGBTQ civil rights movement. To commemorate the uprising, throughout June 2019 New York Public Radio (WNYC) is presenting The Sound of Pride, a special programing series "that captures the spirit, history, impact, and voices of the LGBTQ movement." Here, readers will find podcast episodes and radio segments produced by a variety of WNYC shows, as well as relevant blog posts from WQXR (New York City's classical music station) and upcoming live events. The series covers a wide range of topics, including a review on The New Yorker Radio Hour about "how the movement for LGBTQ rights has changed our culture and our laws," a discussion on The Takeaway about the relationship between police departments and LGBTQ communities, and an episode from the acclaimed podcast Nancy presenting "three stories about different kinds of coming out." Those interested can stream and download these episodes and more online or subscribe to the podcast via Stitcher, Spotify, RadioPublic, or other platforms.
