In honor of Pride Month, today, the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC), announced the launch of Pride: Celebrating LGBTQ+ Landmarks, an interactive story map highlighting individual landmarks designated for their association with people and organizations that made significant contributions to the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ+) cultural and civil rights movements. Through narrative text, photos, maps, and multimedia content, the public can learn more about the important history behind these landmarks.
Pride Month commemorates the Stonewall riots, which occurred at the end of June in 1969. All five boroughs of NYC will celebrate this June, 2022 with a plethora of actives, ending with the historic Pride March on June 26th. Below are just a few suggestions, and we will continue to add to the list.
