What to expect

This Greenwich Village tour takes you into the heart of LGBTQ history on a stroll through the sights connected to the Gay Liberation Movement of the 1970s. Stopping at iconic bars like the Stonewall Inn, Julius’ and Marie’s Crisis, you'll hear about the history of a social movement that would change the face of America and learn about some of its founding members and events. This is an informative and uplifting way to learn about an important chapter in American social history. In the early morning of June 8th, 1969 police raided a gay bar called the Stonewall Inn and inadvertently sparked a riot that would change the social fabric of America. On this Greenwich Village Tour, you'll revisit that night and the movement it spawned in the Village and beyond. Your local guide will take you to famous gay bars along Christopher Street to introduce you to the locations and landmarks around which New York’s long-closeted gay community was able make itself public, unite and organize for more rights. Along the way, we’ll see the city’s oldest gay bar and spots on the national register of historic places. You'll also hear about the devastation caused by the AIDS epidemic and how the community banded together to overcome it. The Greenwich Village tour ends outside Big Gay Ice Cream, a reminder of how far the community has come in the years since the Stonewall riots and a beacon for a brighter future. Sites Visited: - Stonewall Inn - Christopher Park - Gay St. - Julius' Bar - The Duplex Bar - Bleeker St - Marie's Crisis
