Making an invisible history visible
Our groundbreaking work documents historic places connected to lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people in New York City and tells the often untold story of their influence on American history and culture. Explore the map below, view our curated themes, or browse an index of over 375 sites. Contact us.
Our project is a work in progress. We are continuously documenting and adding sites that reflect the ethnic and geographic diversity of the LGBT community and date from the city’s founding in the 17th century to the year 2000.
Don’t know where to start? We’ve grouped a small number of historic sites by theme to guide you through NYC’s LGBT history.
