Event Details

  • Gay Desert Guide's Fun & Games Dept. and TheMenEvent present Pride LGBTQ+ Virtual History Walking Tour of Greenwich Village
  • Celebrate Pride weekend on a tour of the world's first gayborhood, where the Stonewall uprising began and the idea of Pride was born.
  • Can't make the live event? Buy a ticket for the recording and watch the event in your own time! See FAQs below for more info.
  • 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.
  • Speaker Bio

He is the founder of Oscar Wilde Tours, the world's first and only LGBTQ history and art tour company, and Shady Ladies Tours, the women's history and art tour company.
