LGBT rainbow flag to fly at Stonewall NMon; first-ever display on federal property

The riots at Stonewall Inn in 1969 New York, many argue, was Iwo Jima for the LGBT movement, where we metaphorically first planted our flag firmly and for the first time. Our community drew international attention to police brutality and a generally violent atmosphere of hatred aimed at LGBT people.

Few who were there would have imagined that the scene of those riots would one day become a National Monument, as it was formally designated in 2016, let alone an event that would be documented by countless books and movies.
