The NYC LGBT Historic Sites Project is delighted to be hosted by the New York School of Interior Design for a discussion of LGBT historic sites of the design communities. From the 17th century to the year 2000, sites – such as former residences of LGBT notables, bars and clubs, educational and cultural institutions, works of public art and architecture, activism locations, and performing arts venues – illustrate the richness of the city’s LGBT history and the community’s influence on American culture.
