NYC LGBT Historic Sites Project tour in Greenwich Village with Open FinanceFrom Washington Square to Stonewall: A Walk Through the LGBT History of Greenwich Village

Join OPEN Finance and the experts from the NYC LGBT Historic Sites Project for a walking tour of Greenwich Village. Learn about the LGBT presence in the Bohemian Village and hear about the places and people of the pre- and post-Stonewall LGBT civil rights movement and their lasting impact on American culture. The tour will also highlight the importance of these sites to a marginalized community that oftentimes had nowhere else to go to fully be themselves.

Stops will include places connected to such groups as the Salsa Soul Sisters, Mattachine Society, the Gay Liberation Front and to the LGBT activists, artists, and business owners who found refuge in the Village since the late 19th century.
