Narrative

The area surrounding the Greenwich village has been through an extreme social change. Looking within the LGBT community, we explored how social infrastructure has changed the social norms of the urban environment. From the Stonewall Inn riots to building memorials for AID’s victims, whether people know it or not the area around Greenwich village has become a welcoming environment for everyone.  How can our social infrastructure be the platform for positive influence on Human rights?
