Google the Stonewall Inn

The American LGBTQ community recognizes June as Pride Month, intended to celebrate the civil rights gains and ongoing struggle for equal rights for the LGBTQ community. In recent years, the US National Park Service has undertaken a series of initiatives to identify, protect, and interpret heritage sites associated with underrepresented and minority groups. These initiatives include the Asian American Pacific Islander Initiative, American Latino Heritage Initiative, Women’s Stories Initiative, and, the most recent to launch, the LGBTQ Heritage Initiative, focusing on sites related to the lives and history of the gay rights movement in the United States. On June 24, 2016, President Barack Obama designated the Stonewall Inn in New York City as the country’s first national monument to celebrate the LGBTQ community. Now, tech giant Google is stepping up with funding to help preserve the site.
