NYC subway station is renamed in honor of Stonewall Riots

A bill to rename a New York City subway station in honor of the Stonewall Riots unanimously passed the state legislature  and now awaits Gov. Kathy Hochul’s review and expected signature. 

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) proposed to rename the Christopher Street-Sheridan Square subway station as the Christopher Street-Stonewall National Monument station.

The proposal was co-sponsored by State Assemblymember Deborah J. Glick (D-Manhattan) and State Sen. Brad Hoylman-Sigal (D-Manhattan). 

“This change will memorialize the history of the modern LGBTQ civil rights movement and inspire NY to demand justice and equality for all,” Hoylman-Sigal posted. 

Happy Pride Month!!!

The Stonewall Inn was declared National Monument by President Obama
