In honor of Pride Month, join the St. Johns Riverkeeper's Steph Morse and The Jaxson's Mike Field for a guided bike tour of sights and scenes from Jacksonville's long and colorful LGBTQ history.

In the early 20th century, LGBTQ musicians and performers helped turn LaVilla into a hotbed of music and culture, and since at least the 1950s many notable bars, clubs and hangouts have served LGBTQ Jaxsons. Hear stories of legendary nightclub College Station, the LGBTQ "Holy Ground" of Willowbranch Park, and many more from the annals of Jacksonville's storied but often overlooked LGBTQ history.

Participants must bring their own bikes. Tickets are $20; kids 12 and under are free. The starting location for the tour will be decided soon.
