Gay Greenwich Village Walking Tour
This walking tour will take you to the places where gay men and women have lived, loved, worked and partied since the late 19th century in Greenwich Village. The Stonewall Riots that erupted in late June of 1969 announced to the world that the Village was the epicenter of gay life and gay liberation. But this was not news to the gay men and women who had called the Village home for generations. Explore the history behind a first lady’s circle of friends; a closeted multimillionaire; well-known and lesser-known artists, poets, photographers and musicians; New York City elected officials and political activists; and much more. Tour guide Phil Desiere will focus on the gay community of Greenwich Village, but the celebrated art, architecture, and culture of the neighborhood will also be explored.
