Wichita Prime Timer members hosted a very successful event remembering and celebrating the Stonewall Riots. The entire community and surrounding areas were invited and about 30 attended. Members provided hot dogs, burgers, and sides for all and shared a Stonewall documentary video.

One of the local TV stations covered the event by interviewing members and the president, Richard Ukena, who was at the first Gay Pride Parade in 1970. The coverage aired later that evening on the NBC affiliate. One of the most memorable parts of the evening was that one of our guests spoke of his late brother who was at Stonewall the night of the riots. The group is looking forward to hosting this event next year as the 3rd annual.
