Julius’ Sip-In: An Evening with Dick Leitsch
On April 21, 1966, members of New York’s Mattachine Society, a group of homosexual activists, entered Julius’ on West 10th Street, identified themselves as gay, and asked to be served. They were denied service and thus sparked an era of LGBT activism that would culminate with the Stonewall Riots.
Join Dick Leitsch, former president of the Mattachine Society and partipant in the Sip-In, as he discusses the history and lasting importance of the Julius Sip-In.
This event is co-sponsored by the LGBT Center.
