As Manhattan celebrates Gay Pride Month, President Barack Obama announced the dedication of the Stonewall Inn as a national monument — the first ever monument to LGBT history in the country.
Obama announced the dedication of the legendary Stonewall Inn and the surrounding area, the site of the historic 1969 riots, as a national monument in a video that broadcast in Times Square Friday afternoon.
“I believe our national parks should reflect the full story of our country, the richness and the diversity and uniquely American spirit that has always defined us — that we are stronger together, that out of many, we are one,” Obama said.
