Decadent, pre-WWII Berlin was the undisputed gay capital of the world—as imagined in Cabaret, and more recently in the TV shows Babylon Berlin and Transparent. Robert Beachy’s Gay Berlin chronicles the milieu that gave rise to the international gay rights movement, with key strides made for scientific research, advocacy, and visibility—before the Nazis came to power. Join us to hear Robert Beachy in conversation with Eric Marcus, founder of the Stonewall 50 Consortium and creator of the podcast Making Gay History.

In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising, presented with the Stonewall 50 Consortium.
