The History Project: Pride Was a Riot

6:00 PM – 7:00 PM


Pride is a time to celebrate, honor, and recognize the LGBTQ+ community’s history and the ongoing battle for equality for all. Join Joan Ilacqua, Executive Director of The History Project, to explore the history of Boston’s LGBTQ+ community and Pride, with a focus on the activists and organizations who have shaped the LGBTQ+ movement. From rebellions that pre-date the Stonewall Riots to current movement-building, we'll discuss how Pride has evolved in its over 50-year history.

Joan Ilacqua is the Executive Director of The History Project. She is a member of the Boston 400th Commemoration Commission and the Community Archives Collaborative. She is a graduate of UMass Boston’s Public History master’s program and her background is in oral history and advocacy. In her spare time, Joan likes to read queer romance novels and design subversive cross-stitch patterns.

The History Project is Boston's LGBTQ community archives. A 501(c)3 organization founded in 1980 by archivists, activists, and historians, The History Project documents, preserves, and shares LGBTQ+ history. Learn more at
