    The Tour’s terrain is level, traveling along the sidewalks of New York. Wear comfortable shoes. Tours must be booked at least 36 hours in advance. Gratuities cheerfully accepted.


  • Learn of a closeted millionaire, well-known artists, poets, photographers, musicians, New York City elected officials and political activists
  • Walk the spaces and the places that witnessed history: the Stonewall Riots of June 1969 made Greenwich Village the epicenter of gay life
  • Discover the gay men and lesbians who influenced art, politics, music and literature, reaching far beyond the borders of Greenwich Village
  • The Tour’s focus is the gay community of the Village; but we cannot ignore the larger context in which the members of that community thrived
