National Park Service Launches Heritage Initiative to Identify Historic LGBT Sites: VIDEO


Earlier this week we reported that the National Park Service was launching a heritage initiative financed by gay philanthropist Tim Gill to identify LGBT historic sites. The official announcement was made on Friday outside of NYC's historic Stonewall Inn, considered the birthplace of the modern LGBT rights movement.

Here is a clip featuring Interior Secretary Sally Jewell, National Parks Commissioner Joshua Laird, and NYC Councilman Corey Johnson.


Some additional photos of the event can be found at GLAAD.
