NYC’s Hidden LGBT Historic Sites Get Illuminated on Interactive Map

April 24, 2017

Thanks to DNA Info for covering our interactive map in their recent article.

Our co-director Ken Lustbader notes in the piece that “We’re talking about LGBT history, which is often covert, hidden, transitory, dismissed,” and that our project is “not just self-referential. It’s showing that LGBT history is American history.”

Kerry McCarthy of the New York Community Trust, one of our project partners, says that the project “shows so much of the contributions [that] LGBT members have made to the society at large.” She added, “If history is written by the victors and no one writes your history you remain invisible.”
