Acceptance Street:
A sign of acceptance at a landmark intersection.

Christopher and Gay is more than just an intersection. It’s always been the “Main Street” of LGBTQIA+ New York. As the site of the Stonewall Riots of 1969, Christopher Street is seen as the birthplace of the gay rights movement and has hosted countless parades, protests and celebrations in support of the gay rights movement. And two years ago, we partnered with the NYC Human Rights Commission to celebrate the evolution of the movement with an evolution of the intersection: Acceptance Street.
