The intersection of Christopher and Gay Streets in NYC is an iconic corner down the block from the Stonewall Inn, where the riots and the eventual the revolution began for the LGBTQIA+ rights movement. Partnering with the NYC Commission of Human Rights, we took this symbol of the community and made it a bit prouder for World Pride 2019.
