Our very own Forty to None Project Director Jama Shelton is featured in this year’s NYC Pride Guide, which celebrates the 45th anniversary of the Stonewall riots. Many consider Stonewall to be the birthplace of the modern lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender rights movement in the United States.
“It’s an honor to be in the company of such incredible people on this list,” said Shelton. “It’s really inspiring to look back and realize how far we’ve come as a community, and to think about all of the people who have paved the way for us. Now it’s up to us to pave the way for the next generation.”
Jama appears alongside Nathan Schaefer of the Empire State Pride Agenda, Zachary Barnett of the Abzyme Research Foundation, and Rich Ferraro of GLAAD.
