Delaware Stonewall celebrates Stonewall Inn

Our Club took its name from the Stonewall Inn where nearly half century ago, long hassled members of the LGBT community resisted the continual harassment by the New York City Police. Dedicating the Inn as a National Monument is a symbolic reminder of how far we have come as a community in that length of time, to a point where our National Government finally recognizes our worth as human beings. But we also are reminded that in not every corner of our Nation, and certainly in many parts of the world, we are still being denigrated and murdered. We thank our President and the National Park Service for the dedication, but we pledge that as a Club, we at Barbara Gittings Delaware Stonewall will continue the fight to attain full rights for all oppressed persons.
