This Interactive Map Reveals All of New York City's Historic LGBT Sites

The NYC LGBT Historic Sites Project is an initiative to document historic sites pertaining to the fight for LGBT rights in New York City. Comprised of an interactive map and historical collection of documents, photographs, and stories, the site is a great resource to explore to learn more about LGBT culture in the City.

Where did lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) history happen in New York City? In what buildings did influential LGBT activists and artists live and work, and on what streets did groups demonstrate for their equal rights? These are the kinds of historic places – dating from the city’s founding in the 17th century to the year 2000 – that we are continuously documenting so that our project reflects the diversity of the LGBT community throughout the five boroughs.
