Full description

New York City plays a major role in the history of the gay liberation movement as the site of the Stonewall riots and the first Pride March. On this exclusive tour you will see historic gay and lesbian bars, former residences of famous LGBT writers and activists, and other LGBT-friendly institutions in Greenwich Village.

The 2-hour tour will begin at the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center. The guide will show you Julius’, the site of one of the earliest pre-Stonewall public actions for LGBT lights, and the former Oscar Wilde Memorial Bookshop – the first gay and lesbian bookstore on the East Coast. You will hear the detailed story behind the Stonewall riots of 1969 and see the historic Stonewall Inn. Opposite in the Christopher Park you will find the Gay Liberation Monument.

Your Private Guide will also show you locations of historic sites that are no longer on the map, places that witnessed landmark events in LGBT history. You will see the building that housed the Snake Pit bar, Stewart’s Cafeteria, Café Society/Ridiculous Theatrical Company. You will also be introduced to some LGBT personalities and their former residences in the Village, such as H.M Koutoukas and Lorraine Hansberry. There will be a stop on Groove Street which from 1970-1990 housed the lesbian bars Duchess, Groove and Pandora Box’s.

Step on the street where the first Pride March was held in 1970 and imagine the energy of thousands of people marching together for LGBT rights. Learn about the origin of the “The Future is Female” slogan at the former location of Labyris, the first feminist bookstore in NYC. The tour will end at Caffe Cino – a place widely recognized as the birthplace of Off-Off Broadway
