George Segal's "Gay Liberation" at Stanford

George Segal’s “Gay Liberation” commemorates the 1969 Stonewall rebellion that is often cited as the beginning of the modern gay rights movement. A casting on Stanford’s campus was installed in 1984, and today serves as a reminder that queer students at Stanford “have always been here and the presence of gay people on this campus has affected the Stanford community in a multitude of ways.”

Segal’s “Gay Liberation,” located on Lomita Mall between Buildings 370 and 380 of the Main Quad, is one of 80 pieces of public art accessible on campus year-round

Narration: Amir Abou-Jaoude, ‘20
