Event description

Description


As the photographer for the Village Voice, the only (somewhat) mainstream media outlet on earth paying serious and respectful attention to gay issues and events in the 1960s and 1970s, Fred W. McDarrah amassed what is generally regarded as the largest collection of gay-themed photos taken by one individual, ever.

ON THIS TOUR, SEE WHERE SO MANY OF THE ICONIC PHOTOS WERE TAKEN, HOW THEY FIT INTO THE HISTORY OF THE MOVEMENT, OF GREENWICH VILLAGE AND SO MUCH MORE.

McDarrah images have become the signature photos of what is now inclusively referred to as LGBTQ+ history, and his photos were featured by the Barack Obama White House in the video announcing the Stonewall National Monument in 2016.

As with all Save The Village tours, with the Queer History tour every ticket includes a free keepsake postcard packet of photos, many of which are sure to be viewed and displayed worldwide as Stonewall 50 approaches in June 2019.

Come and see where it all happened on the ONLY regularly scheduled, guided and illustrated tour of its kind.

WALKING TOURS THROUGH THE PHOTOGRAPHS OF FRED W. MCDARRAH

Greenwhich Village walking tours like no other! See where history was recorded by the original Village Voice photographer Fred W. McDarrah - the most curious, knowledgeable and defatigable chronicler of the New York downtown scene over the second half of the 20th century! Before the Internet, there was McDarrah. He captured all of the artsts, writers, musicians and social movements that marked the time.

Each guest recieves a keepsake multi-postcard set of classic McDarrah images and the tours go to the same locations to see how they have changed, how they are the same, and to hear the stories behind the famous photos.
