Hearing On Stonewall National Monument Plan May 9

Stonewall Inn (l.) and Julius' Bar (r.)

GVSHP has been working with a coalition of community groups and elected officials spearheaded by the National Parks Conservation Alliance seeking to make the Stonewall Inn, considered the birthplace of the modern LGBT rights movement, and the adjacent park and surrounding area a national park and/or monument.  A public hearing will be held next week on the plan for the Department of the Interior and National Parks Service, and Interior Secretary Sally Jewell and National Park Service Director Jon Jarvis will attend to hear feedback from the public.  This is an important opportunity to recognize one of many incredible contributions the Village has made to our nation, to civil rights movements, and to  LGBT history.   Read more about it here.

In 2015, GVSHP successfully spearheaded a campaign to secure landmark status for the Stonewall Inn.  GVSHP is currently seeking landmark status for the nearby Julius’ Bar, which recently marked the 50th anniversary of its landmark 1966 “Sip In” for LGBT rights.
