WGSS Students Visit the Stonewall National Monument

Five students stand underneath the archway of the Stonewall National Monument gate. Above them fly the traditional pride flag, pride progress flags and the transgender pride flag. A sign to the left reads, "U.S. Department of the Interior National Parks Service Stonewall National Monument."

Prof. Rajani Bhatia accompanied WGSS students on a recent field trip to the Stonewall National Monument in New York City.

The Stonewall National Monument was one of the community partners during this year’s iteration of Dr. Bhatia’s Internship class (AWSS 492/592). The monument is located near The Stonewall Inn, a National Historic Landmark known for its role in the fight for LGBTQ+ rights.

Special thanks to the Gender and Sexuality Resource Center (GSRC) for its support of the trip. Here are some pictures of this unforgettable experience!
