Journey to the heart of the West Village on this virtual tour and experience the neighborhood’s vital place in the queer history of New York City. The Village has historically been a vibrant center of countercultures, artistic, and social movements, and it became the birthplace of the gay liberation movement after the Stonewall Uprising in 1969. Join scholar and author Andrew Lear and explore the places where Villagers have lived and loved, partied and paraded, and meet some of the personalities who called it home, from Walt Whitman to Eleanor Roosevelt to James Baldwin.
