NYU grads have created a mobile app to help people walking the streets of New York learn more about the gay history that happened there.

A New smart-phone app called “Whose Streets, Our Streets” is offering walking tours of New York City streets, featuring points of queer resistance throughout the city’s history, Huffington Post reports. The app uses QR codes, which users can scan as the stroll to review photos, videos, and historic information about specific historic locations, such as Christopher Park near the Stonewall Inn and the East Village’s STAR Inn, which was a homeless shelter for LGBT people of color. The app, which was created by NYU grads Wesley Flash and Anne Goodfriend, is named after a chant activists used outside the Stonewall Inn on June 28, 1969.
