To commemorate the LGBTQ rights movement in New York City, Google has created a digital monument for the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots.

On Tuesday, Google—along with The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center and the National Park Service—unveiled an interactive augmented-reality experience. The AR experience and accompanying website tell the story of the 1969 police raid on the Stonewall Inn, a popular West Village gay bar that’s now a National Historic Landmark honoring the city’s LGBTQ rights movement.
