This page provides guides and educational video segments that delve into LGBTQ place-based history in New York City. The accompanying PDFs can be downloaded and shared with your students. Links below videos can also be shared with students.
We have documented over 330 historic sites that provide a diverse and compelling look at New York City’s LGBTQ past and the community’s influence on American culture. Video segments – each under ten minutes – are led by the NYC LGBT Historic Sites Project team. The videos include contemporary and archival images and provide a general overview of a thematic selection of sites featured on our website. We encourage you and your students to explore the website for more in-depth information and for lists of additional sources.
This video provides guidelines to teachers who would like to learn more about teaching LGBTQ place-based history in the classroom by using the project website as a resource.
