Woodlawn Cemetery and the NYC LGBT Historic Sites Project celebrate Pride Month with a special trolley tour illuminating LGBT permanent residents who have made a lasting impact on American culture in the 19th and 20th centuries. Join us as we share stories about love, loss, and relationships on our annual tour. We’ll visit the final resting places of Harlem Renaissance poet Countee Cullen, illustrator Joseph Leyendecker, theatrical agent Elisabeth Marbury, and photographer George Platt Lynes. Patricia Cronin’s well-known sculpture “Memorial to a Marriage” is a highlight of this tour. The tour will be co-led by Jay Shockley, Project co-director; Amanda Davis, manager of the NYC LGBT Historic Sites Project; and Susan Olsen, Director of Historical Services at Woodlawn Cemetery.
