The Stonewall Inn, the bar considered the birthplace of the U.S. gay rights movement, may soon be designated a NYC historical landmark, now being considered the New York City’s Landmarks Preservation Commission. “It ensures that our place in history will always be recognized, that there will be a free-standing building that will memorialize all the LGBT people that came before us,” said Kevin Nadal, executive director of the Center for LGBTQ Studies at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York.
