Queer History Walks

Select Fridays, 6 pm

Floor 1

In commemoration of the fiftieth anniversary of the Stonewall riots, join us for a free walking tour that explores the rich queer history of the neighborhood surrounding the Whitney Museum. This sunset walk looks to the past to reflect on the present by bringing visitors to select sites marked by queer history and culture. From the Hudson River piers to the clubs, visitors are invited to consider their connection to the changing landscape of the neighborhood that the Whitney now occupies as well as to the history of the city.
