Stonewall National Monument
2:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Before the 1960s almost everything about living openly as a lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or queer (LGBTQ) person was illegal. New York City laws against homosexual activities were particularly harsh. The Stonewall Uprising on June 28, 1969 is a milestone in the quest for LGBTQ civil rights and provided momentum for a movement.

During OHNY Weekend, the monument will feature a unique in-park gallery experience on experiences that LGBTQ individuals personally faced, with National Park Service rangers and staff present to speak with visitors.

Access Notes: Please be advised, portions of Christopher Park are not wheelchair accessible.
