Celebrate Pride Month with Henry Street's Queer History Walking Tour of the Lower East Side!

The Lower East Side is an international crossroads of communities—including queer communities, which existed well before the dawn of a queer liberation movement and have continued into the post-Stonewall period. The tour will begin at Henry Street Settlement‘s headquarters, where you will learn about founder Lillian Wald’s relationships with women, and will end at Bluestockings Cooperative, a Lower East Side queer and trans worker-owned bookstore.

Dates: Sat. June 4 | 11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. Sun. June 12 | 11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. Sat. June 18 | 11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. Wed. June 22 | 5:00 - 7:00 p.m.

The tours will be led by Henry Street’s public historian Katie Vogel, Natalie Hill, Salonee Bhaman, Daniel Walber, erin reid, and Jimmy Fay.

Masks are encouraged. Spots are extremely limited! Due to COVID-19 precautions, tours are available only to the first 20 registrants. Tickets are $15 each.
