Details

The birthplace of modern gay rights took place on Christopher Street in Greenwich Village in June 1969, at the Stonewall Inn, where LGBT patrons stood up against the police raids to which they had regularly been subjected. Stonewall Inn still operates as a local gay bar. A Gay Liberation monument in Christopher Park, across the way, commemorates the rebellion. In June 2016, the area was designated as the country’s first National Monument dedicated to LGBT civil rights
