Take advantage of this first-ever public walking tour by the expert team from the NYC LGBT Historic Sites Project, the first initiative to uncover the city’s hidden LGBT past. Honor the people and events that have shaped LGBT history while directly supporting the Project’s work. This 1 ½ hour-long walking tour of Greenwich Village will remind you why we march in celebration of Pride! Starting at Christopher Park, walk and learn about the long-standing oppressive practices which led to the 1969 Stonewall uprising and, before that, the 1966 “Sip-In” at Julius’ Bar. The Project’s website is creating a place-based record of LGBT history in NYC. Your contribution will directly benefit the ongoing work of the NYC LGBT Historic Sites Project to research and document more historic spaces in New York City and includes one complimentary drink at Julius’ Bar at the end of the tour. The walk will take place rain or shine.
