Obama wants more national landmarks for queers

“The federal government hopes to recognize more landmarks connected with the LGBTQ community, according to National Park Service Director Jonathan B. Jarvis.

“Jarvis joined Interior Secretary Sally Jewell on a conference call to discuss the release of the National Park Foundation’s ‘LGBTQ America: A Theme Study of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer History.’

“On June 24, President Obama recognized the Stonewall National Monument as the country’s first monument to honor the history of the LGBTQ community in American and the Henry Gerber House in Chicago was named a National Historic Landmark. Jarvis said there are more landmark designations planned in the future.”

(If you question the National Park Service publishing a study of queer history, then you are part of the homophobic problem.)

And if you do not agree with this as a government mission, you are definitely homophobic: “This is just the beginning of what we hope will be a groundswell effort for the public to further increase the number of LGBTQ identified sites and interpretations of LGBTQ people and related events at existing historical sites across the country,” he added.
