The Queer Past of Greenwich Village: A Lecture with Daniel Hurewitz
Join history professor Daniel Hurewitz, author of Stepping Out: Nine Walks Through New York City’s Gay & Lesbian Past, for an exploration of the rich gay and lesbian history of Greenwich Village. Hurewitz’s talk will invite us to think about the Village’s central and fascinating role in the history of lesbian and gay culture and politics. Along the way, he will be narrating the history of places like Heterodoxy, The Slide, and the Snake Pit, and offering tales of celebrated artists like James Baldwin, Paul Cadmus, and Berenice Abbott.
This event is co-sponsored by Outhistory.org.
