I am tired of yhe 'Squeaky Wheels' that moan , groan, complain and whine about 'Were's mine?' getting a national monument or park. If that is going to happen let the Dept. of the Interior make a national Park to honor ALL of those Confederate Soldiers and Civilians that died protecting their homeland from the Union invaders and carpetbaggers. Point of fact, there were far more 'slaves' in the 'North' than there ever were in the South.

I'm signing this petition because all people, regardless of their race, religious beliefs or sexual preference, should have the right to equality and a testimony to their fight for those rights.

Should start a petition on We the People. If it reaches 100k signatures the White House has to respond.

I believe Stonewall is of huge national historic importance and should be treated as such by our government.

I'm signing because I am a Lesbian who is tired, and angry, and terrified that the decades of fighting for the right to love and live openly in which I have involved is as tenuous now as when we began. I want a better world for the young LGBTQI people yet to be born.

Thanks for adding your voice.

LGBT citizens need to be seen and remembered for our contributions, and our struggles. For too long we were hidden in the shadows - fearful and ashamed. Even today, there are those who try to force us back into those dark places. It is fitting that the Stonewall Inn be designated a national monument in honor of those who started the "gay rights movement". It is also fitting that we today, who both benefit from the progress we've made and are wounded by the backlash from that progress, continue to show up, step up, and speak up in order to achieve the goal of equality for LGBT people.

Thanks for adding your voice.

I am homosexual and we need to be treated as equals just like the people of rights movements past.

My late partner was in the Stonewall the night of the riots. His name was Nicholas Sheptak. He was a very special person to me and he would be thrilled to know this was happening after so many years. He has been gone for three years and is not forgotten.
