Stonewall Celebrates its 5th Anniversary

To celebrate the 5th anniversary of the establishment of Stonewall National Monument, the site invited the public to share 'What Stonewall Means to Them' for the We Are Stonewall Arts Festival. We asked our Rangers the same question, and their answers are in the video below. The site also created 15 episodes that share the important history of the uprisings, the preservation of the story, and the establishment of Stonewall as a National Monument. A new episode of the series will be uploaded each Friday and be found on our YouTube channel and Facebok as well by using #FifthAnniversaryFriday.
