Join us on a Sunday afternoon stroll of Greenwich Village as we explore the lesbian community’s connections to one of the world’s most famous neighborhoods. We’ll cover places that speak to the evolution of the lesbian bar, from the 1910s onward, and gathering spots run by women for women that popped up in the Village in the 1970s. Stops along the way include the former homes of notable lesbians who have helped shape American history and culture.
The tour will last approximately 1 1/2 hours. Meet at northwest corner of Washington Square Park (outside the gate), at Waverly Place and Washington Square West.
