Fifty-five years after an uprising gridlocked the streets of downtown Manhattan and catapulted the modern gay rights movement, a visitor center dedicated to the now-historic riots will open its doors next Friday. The Stonewall National Monument Visitor Center will be located in the building next door to the Stonewall Inn, the site of the June 1969 Stonewall riots, in Manhattan’s Greenwich Village neighborhood. The original bar included the current bar’s space and the site of the new visitor center, connected through an interior passageway that has since been sealed closed. Its opening on the last weekend of June also coincides with the same weekend that the riots occurred in 1969. Around the world, LGBTQ Pride Month is celebrated in June in commemoration of the uprising.
