NYC LGBT Historic Sites Project

The NYC LGBT Historic Sites Project is the first ever survey to document historic places associated with the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community in New York City. The Project was launched in 2015, but the three project directors have been active in the field of LGBT place-based research and advocacy for over twenty years. Despite New York’s incredibly rich and diverse LGBT history, the preservation of associated sites has been minimal. The Project seeks to raise awareness of this largely unknown history by creating a publicly accessible online map with text and photos featuring sites connected to the arts, activism, social spaces, commemoration, people of color, and more. In addition, as part of a grant from the United States Department of the Interior, it will be nominating at least five sites to the National Register of Historic Places (its first - Julius' bar in Greenwich Village - was recently listed on the New York State Register and goes for national listing next).
