Stonewall50 and Jane’s Walk: Queer History Walk with the Whitney
In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots, join us for a free walking tour that explores the rich queer history of the neighborhood surrounding the Whitney Museum. This sunset walk looks to the past to reflect on the present by bringing visitors to select sites marked by queer history and culture. From the Hudson River piers to the clubs, visitors are invited to consider their connection to the changing landscape of the neighborhood that the Whitney now occupies, as well as to the history of the city.
This tour will be led by Whitney Museum Joan Tisch Teaching Fellow Ayanna Dozier.
Co-sponsored by the Whitney Museum of American Art and Village Preservation.
This event is outdoors and sidewalk accessible, and will be offered rain or shine.
