Stonewall LGBT Village Pride Tour

NYC LGBT Historic Sites ProjectNYC LGBT Historic Sites Project
This experience is sponsored, in part, by the generous support of American Express, Con Edison, and a Humanities New York Action Grant. This walk offers an overview of extant sites associated with pre- and post-Stonewall LGBT history, culture, and activism. It is centered around the Stonewall National Monument at Christopher Park. The June 1969 Stonewall uprising was a key turning point in the LGBT rights movement. In the pre-Stonewall years, amidst an atmosphere of fear and repression, gay bars and other social gathering spaces were crucial in creating a sense of community and brewing political agitation. The walk includes sites such as Stonewall, Julius’, and the Oscar Wilde Memorial Bookshop. This tour represents a selection of sites associated with LGBT history that are located within a small geographic area. As such, it does not represent the entire long LGBT history of New York City, nor does it entirely reflect the diversity of today’s LGBT community. This collection is limited to the research we have included on the project website so far. For more information or to suggest a site, please visit our website at www.nyclgbtsites.org.
