Washington, D.C.

On Friday, June 24, President Barack Obama designated the first national monument to gay rights. He identified the Stonewall Inn Tavern in Manhattan, New York, for the honor—the place where the modern gay rights movement was born in the wake of the 1969 Stonewall uprising.  The uprising was sparked by a police raid of the gay bar after a long history of unmitigated harassment of members of the LGBT community who frequented the location. The monument will be anchored by Christopher Park, a small area located across from the Stonewall Inn Tavern, collectively, it covers nearly eight acres of Greenwich Village.    The monument tells the story of the LGBT communities struggle for Civil Rights that is now woven into the fabric of America.
