In 2016, Christopher Park and the streets surrounding Stonewall were designated a National Monument. From police riots to park rangers, The Monument explores the celebrated, complicated, and contentious legacy of Stonewall and the ways in which this small corner of New York City has become hallowed ground – and a “town square” – for many LGBTQ folks around the world. This film will be released in June 2019, timed to the 50th Anniversary of the Stonewall Riots.
