From discos and dive bars to piano bars and cabarets, we’ll observe the shifting typology of the gay bar. Most importantly, we’ll hear from “those who were there” and indulge “those who wish they were”. All this, in the name of sparking a conversation about how to properly preserve and celebrate New York City’s “lavender landmarks.” If you’ve walked with us before, we’re highlighting some new LGBT historic sites this year – join us again!
