President Barack Obama announced his decision to designate the site of the Stonewall Uprising for gay rights in New York City as a national monument.

The Stonewall Inn was a gay bar that was raided by the New York City police department to enforce a law making it illegal to sell alcoholic drinks to homosexuals. Gay Americans rioted in response, organizing activists and rallies across the country in support of gay rights in America.
