Help Fund the Project

Your gift will make an invisible history visible.
When you support the NYC LGBT Historic Sites Project, you’re helping us expand our research efforts and identify new sites, nominate more LGBT historic sites to the State and National Registers of Historic Places, and develop walking tours as well as educational and outreach programs. Learn more about the project by viewing our introductory video.

Donations of $75 or more receive our “GAY” t-shirt, inspired by the graphics used to advertise New York City’s first-ever Pride March, to commemorate the one-year anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising, in 1970.

Donations of $500 or more and receive a limited-edition photograph of the history-making Mattachine Society “Sip-In” at Julius’, signed by two participants, Dick Leitsch (1935-2018) and Randy Wicker (b. 1938). Taken by Village Voice photographer Fred W. McDarrah on April 21, 1966, the image was printed in 2018 from the original negative and stamped with the official authorization from the McDarrah estate.
