This in-person walking tour, led by experts at the NYC LGBT Historic Sites Project, highlights historic places that help contextualize the landmark 1969 uprising at the Stonewall Inn. Starting at Christopher Park, across from Stonewall, learn about the long-standing oppressive practices which led to the game-changing uprising. Stops along the tour will also highlight locations that have been especially impactful on the lives of LGBT people, including the starting point of the first-ever NYC Pride March (in 1970), popular gay and lesbian bars such as the Duchess and the Snake Pit, and places connected to the Mattachine Society (NYC’s first gay rights group), the Gay Activists Alliance, Radicalesbians, and the Street Transvestite Action Revolutionaries (STAR). The tour will end at Julius’, site of the historic 1966 “Sip-In.” The tour will last approximately 1 ½ hours and will take place rain or shine.

About the organizer

The NYC LGBT Historic Sites Project, launched in 2015 by preservation professionals, is an award-winning cultural heritage initiative and educational resource documenting and presenting historic sites connected to the LGBT community throughout New York City. Its website, including an interactive map, features over 265 diverse places from the 17th century to 2000 that are important to LGBT history and illustrate the community’s influence on NYC and American culture.

The project researches and nominates LGBT sites to the National Register, advocates for the official recognition of LGBT historic sites, provides walking tours (also accessible through a free-app), presents lectures, engages the community through events, develops educational programs for New York City public school students, and disseminates its content through robust social media channels. Its goal is to make an invisible history visible while fostering pride and awareness.
