New York State ad campaign tries to steal business away from states with anti-LGBT laws

New York State ad campaign tries to steal business away from states with anti-LGBT laws | LGBT Destinations | Scoop.it
New York State is capitalizing on the negative publicity that three states have garnered for their anti-LGBT stances. Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) has launched an “Open Doors Campaign” that will air TV advertisements in Texas, Mississippi, and North Carolina touting New York as a preferable place to relocate.
Matt Skallerud's insight:

The ads feature multiple images of same-sex couples and reference Ellis Island, the Underground Railroad, the fight for women’s suffrage, and the Stonewall Rebellion. New York is depicted as a place that “welcomes those unwelcome in other places.”

Obama Names LGBT Landmark As National Monument

Obama Names LGBT Landmark As National Monument | LGBT Destinations | Scoop.it
President Obama is designating a new national monument at the Stonewall Inn, the birthplace of the modern gay rights movement.
Matt Skallerud's insight:

The Stonewall National Monument in New York City will be the first addition to the National Park System specifically highlighting the history of the LGBT community. The monument covers nearly 8 acres in New York's Greenwich Village including a landmark gay bar, the Stonewall Inn. In June of 1969, gay patrons at the bar fought back against police persecution — an event that's widely seen as a watershed in the campaign for LGBT rights.
