WEB Notes: We had a post about this last month, this makes it official.

President Obama has declared the Stonewall Inn a national monument, making the iconic West Village bar the first national monument of the LGBT rights movement.

“Stonewall will be our first national monument to tell the story for the struggle for LGBT rights,” Obama announced in a video released Friday.

The President honored the Stonewall patrons who fought back against a police raid on June 28, 1969, igniting the national gay rights movement 47 years ago.
