Sites of LGBT history move toward national landmark status

Sites of LGBT history move toward national landmark status


The creation of Stonewall National Monument not only marked the first time a landmark related to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender history reached that status, but was the most visible step in a campaign the National Park Service started in 2014 to identify sites of LGBT heritage and tell their stories.
