Christopher and Gay is more than just an intersection. It’s always been the “Main Street” of LGBTQIA+ New York. Seen as the birthplace of the gay rights movement during the Stonewall Riots of 1969, it’s been host to countless parades, protests and celebrations. 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.
This year, we brought this sign of acceptance everywhere through AR features on Snapchat, helping everyone showcase acceptance and their true selves wherever they want.
