From the Queen City to the Big Apple: LGBTQ Historical Connections in WNY and NYC
June 29, 2021 | 6:00PM to 7:30PM
Join Preservation Buffalo Niagara and the NYC LGBT Historic Sites Project as we explore some of the landmarks of the gay liberation movement in both NYC and WNY. By comparing the sites, we’ll be able to gain new insights into similarities and differences between each city’s activities in the movement as well as work to establish a more comprehensive narrative of LGBTQ history in New York State. The presentation will also feature a special message from Daniel Mackay, Deputy Commissioner for Historic Preservation at State of New York Office of Parks, Recreation & Historic Preservation.
