27 Jun 2019 - By WarnerMedia Staff

WarnerMedia has teamed up with BMW of North America and Procter & Gamble to present “QUEER CITY: A CNN Experience” – an exhibit to celebrate the landmark moments in New York City’s LGBTQIA+ history. The celebration marks the 50th anniversary of the 1969 Stonewall Uprising, which occurred in New York City’s Greenwich Village, and honors WorldPride NYC 2019. The immersive exhibit at the Hudson Mercantile is free and open to the public on June 27 from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. The day will then cap off with an evening VIP event.

“This partnership is more than just a one-day event; it’s about telling the story of the queer community and the people who have helped build it, along with their personal and intimate struggles and triumphs throughout history,” said Michal Shapira, SVP of Content Partnerships and Courageous Studios – WarnerMedia Ad Sales.

The 5,000 square-foot exhibit developed by Courageous Studios – CNN’s award-winning brand studio – focuses on the personal experiences of what life was like for a queer person in New York City over the past eight decades. The display features nearly 300 artifacts to personify those experiences, including personal photos, home videos, clothing, letters and journals. At the center of the exhibit, there will be a screening room featuring four films created by CNN about WorldPride, including "Out of the Shadows" – a film collaboration between Courageous and P&G.
