The Monument

Directed by Cheryl Furjanic



In the summer of 1969, a group young people fought back against a police raid of a popular NYC gay bar. This Stonewall uprising became the match that ignited the still fragile gay rights movement. In the years that followed, the LGBTQ community would gather together near Stonewall in times of celebration, mourning, and protest. In 2016, the area surrounding Stonewall was designated as a National Monument. How and why did this location go from the site of a gay rights riot to a U.S. National Park in less than 50 years and what can we learn from Stonewall?
