History Tour of Greenwich Village Online Event
Datum 2021-06-26 18:00:00 Ende 2021-06-26 19:15:00
On this tour, we explore the heart of the Village, where the gay liberation movement took off, with the Stonewall riots in 1969 and the first Gay Pride parade a year later.
But the Village’s gay history goes back a century before that, to the time of Walt Whitman. Since that time, like Paris’ Left Bank, the Village has been the center of all of the city’s many countercultures and artistic movements, from the creators of Off Broadway to the Beats and the Factory—and of course the gay liberation movement. During this tour, we see the places where Villagers have lived and loved, including the sites of the drag shows and gay bars which have dotted the Village for 150 years—and of course the Stonewall Inn, where our tour starts and ends.
The list of LGBT greats we discover reads like a history of American culture, from Herman Melville to Eleanor Roosevelt to James Baldwin to Harvey Fierstein.
