Google on Sunday announced a large grant to help record and make sure a major part of gay history – and New York City history – is not forgotten.
As WCBS 880’s Mike Sugerman reported, the grant will ensure that the story of the people who were at the Stonewall uprising 48 years ago [is told].
Thomas Lanigan Schmidt was at the uprising. When asked what it was like, he said, “It’s hard to break it down into a sound bite.”
But he is very glad his story will be memorialized in the new project.
