Tony DiCicco, Co-Owner of The Stonewall Inn

Advisor - Tony has been in the nightlife industry in New York City for over twenty-five years including managing and owning several other clubs and restaurants in Greenwich Village.  Tony recalls a poignant moment the morning that Marriage Equality had passed.  He was standing in front of The Stonewall Inn, wearing his Levi's Stonewall t-shirt and a women with two grammar school-aged children asked him if she could take a picture of Tony with her children.  She told him she isn't gay and she doesn't know if her children are gay but she felt it was important for them to experience something so historic. Tony hopes that The Stonewall Inn will grow to become not only the symbol of the gay rights movement but the symbol for all equal rights.
