June 22, 2022 | 6PM

View on Google Maps

Pride is celebrated to commemorate the 1969 Stonewall uprising, a key turning point in the LGBT rights movement. In its immediate aftermath, new activist groups emerged fighting for liberation and visibility. However, New York City has a long and vibrant LGBT history dating to the early 20th century. Join Andrew Dolkart and Ken Lustbader, Co-Directors of the NYC LGBT Historic Sites Project, for an LGBT walking tour of Greenwich Village. Starting under the arch at Washington Square Park, 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, and the Gay Liberation Front, and to the LGBT activists, artists, and business owners who found refuge in the Village since the late 19th century.

This is a FUNDRAISING tour; all money raised will support the ongoing work of the NYC LGBT Historic Sites Project.

Tour starts at the Arch in Washington Square Park, in Greenwich Village. Walking tour will take place rain or shine.

This event is presented with the support of the New York Community Trust and Con Edison.
