Stonewall Walking Tour
June 22, 2023 | 6 PM
Christopher Park at Seventh Avenue South and Christopher Street across from the Stonewall Inn.
This in-person walking tour, led by experts at the NYC LGBT Historic Sites Project, highlights historic places that help contextualize the landmark 1969 uprising at the Stonewall Inn. Starting at Christopher Park, across from Stonewall, learn about the long-standing oppressive practices which led to the game-changing uprising. Stops along the tour will also highlight locations that have been especially impactful on the lives of LGBT people, including the starting point of the first-ever NYC Pride March (in 1970), popular gay and lesbian bars such as the Duchess and the Snake Pit, and places connected to the Mattachine Society (NYC’s first gay rights group), the Gay Activists Alliance, Radicalesbians, and the Street Transvestite Action Revolutionaries (STAR). The tour will end at Julius’, site of the historic 1966 “Sip-In.”
The tour will last approximately 1 ½ hours and will take place rain or shine.
Advance registration required — $30 general admission; $20 student, with proof of student ID.
