Outline Abraham Lincoln once said, “It is not ‘Can any of us imagine better?’ but ‘Can we all do  better?’ ” “The site of the Stonewall has become a tourist site, visited by many gay and lesbian  visitors to New York City, as well as others seeking the roots of the modern lesbian and  gay movement.” On June 22-24, 1990, the Empire State Building was lit up for the first time in lavender  light (lavender is the color associated with the lesbian and gay movement) in recognition  of the importance of Stonewall; the commemorative lavender lighting has been repeated  every year since then.
