2019 marks the 50th anniversary of the history-making Stonewall uprising. In honor of #Stonewall50, we’re walking the Village and sharing the history of the people, places and events that have shaped LGBTQIA+ — and American — history. Join us; your ticket purchase directly supports the Project’s work.
Three Dates Available:
- June 6, 2019 | 6:00pm - 7:30pm, starting from Christopher Park
- June 24, 2019 | 6:00pm - 7:30pm, starting from Washington Square Park

This 1 ½ hour-long walking tour of Greenwich Village is led by the expert team from the NYC LGBTQIA+ Historic Sites Project, the first initiative to uncover the city’s hidden LGBTQIA+ past. This walk will remind you why we march in celebration of Pride! Starting at Christopher Park, walk and learn about the long-standing oppressive practices which led to the 1969 Stonewall uprising and, before that, the 1966 “Sip-In” at Julius’ Bar.
The Project’s website is creating a place-based record of LGBTQIA+ history in NYC. Your contribution will directly benefit the ongoing work of the NYC LGBTQIA+ Historic Sites Project to research and document more historic spaces in New York City and includes one complimentary drink at Julius’ Bar at the end of the tour. The walk will take place rain or shine.
This public program is made possible in part through the support of NYC & Company Foundation.
