TOUR HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Letting Loose and Fighting Back: LGBTQ Nightlife Before and After Stonewall: Explore how nightlife has been critical in shaping LGBTQ identity, building community, developing political awareness, and fostering genres of creative expression that have influenced popular culture worldwide, from gay bars in the 1950s and 1960s to the rise of the gay liberation movement and the emergence of LGBTQ clubs as places of community activism.
  • By the Force of Our Presence: Highlights from the Lesbian Herstory Archives, a grassroots organization established in 1974 in response to the widespread erasure of lesbian lives and voices, which houses the world’s largest collection of materials by and about lesbians including photographs, books and manuscripts, periodicals, posters, zines, flyers, and clothes.
  • Say It Loud, Out and Proud: Fifty Years of Pride: In this special installation, see imagery from New York City Pride marches and other LGBTQ protests from the 1960s to the present day, as well as a timeline of milestones and objects from LGBTQ history.
