Event description

Description

From the 1800s until post-WWII's industrial decline, Brooklyn's waterfront was a refuge for working class queer people. Journalist Hugh Ryan, founder of the Pop-Up Museum of Queer History, pulls back the curtain to tell this history, from the military factories that gave lesbians (and all women) economic freedom, to the transgender presence at Coney Island freak shows.
