Skip to comments.In N.Y., White House poised to create first monument to gay rights struggle

President Obama is poised to declare the first-ever national monument recognizing the struggle for gay rights, singling out a sliver of green space and part of the surrounding Greenwich Village neighborhood as the birthplace of Americas modern gay liberation movement...
Protests at the site, which lasted for six days, began in the early morning of June 28, 1969 after police raided the Stonewall Inn, which was frequented by gay men. While patrons of the bar, which is still in operation today in half of its original space, had complied in the past with these crackdowns, that time it sparked a spontaneous riot by bystanders and those who had been detained...
The decision to recognize a critical moment in the fight for gay rights, at a time when politicians in several states are moving to strip away legal protections for transgender, gay, lesbian and bisexual residents, enjoys considerable support within the administration. But the path to declaring the monument has been a complicated one, largely because the site involves private property and a dense urban area where land-use planning is never simple.

A pair of geodesic domes at the base of the Washington Monument might serve.
I was just thinking, the imagery they decide to propose and later use may be over the top.
obama’s move is FILTHY and DISGUSTING as usual!!!!
As for NYC, it is also the home of the presumptive Republican nominee, Donald J Trump!!!!
The obama Legacy.
Wouldn’t expect anything less from Bathhouse Barry.
500 years from now, no one will know what that monument is as most of the gay men will have died off and the country has reversed homosexuality.
This points up now the liberals view this. They mention Selma and Stonewall in the same breath, as if the issues of civil rights for minorities and pushing homosexuality are the same thing.
Can’t wait for President Trump to have this sodomite monument scrapped!
Will they erect a Big Dildo that looks like Obama ?
In other words, holding that kid down in the band camp cabin while he is forced into his "born that way" sexuality.
"....struggle?...?????....a ginormous condom with a knot in it?"
A national monument to celebrate sexual perverts. LOL! Smooth move there Obonzo. You moronic freak.
A pair of d**ks and a pair of c**ts?
Modern art piece: “Rockets-to-Sockets”
New York values?
“the country has reversed homosexuality”,
Hmmmm, let me think about that...... OK, in keeping with our modern sick times, what that means is male homos will transgender into women and become lesbians, and lesbians will transgender into men and be male homos.
That would be the left’s version of reversed homosexuality.
Seriously, I think you are right. Everything, including human behavior trends work in cycles. Some day, probably after my passing, the people will be just sick of the crap, recognize it as a mental illness and treat all sickos as such. Or maybe the pendulum will swing a little farther and society will start thinning them out with violent methods.
But it will happen. And whatever monuments erected to honor the sickos will be torn down like Hitler’s statues.
Hopefully it will be some kind of shapeless “modern art” and not a graphic depiction of you-know-what.
We’re not going to be a country in 500 years. We’ll split way before then.
