What you'll do
Explore rare and one-of-a-kind original artifacts that tell the story of the voices, pivotal moments and profound community organizing that defined the LGBTQ movement in American history. Begin with a private tour of Stonewall Library, with more than 28 thousand LGBTQ titles representing decades of cutting edge literature and art, and an impressive array of rare and signed works, such as a signed copy of Walt Whitman’s Leaves of Grass, now more than one hundred years old. Continue with a virtual tour of the current exhibition at Stonewall Museum, where historic items and research are curated to inspire thought-provoking questions and parallels to today’s issues. And for the finale, delve into an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour of the Stonewall Archives, typically made available only to researchers by appointment. Take part in a lively discussion as we explore the underground magazines, activist letters, bar and club posters, buttons, photos, compelling t-shirts, and other items that signify the evolution of the LGBTQ movement. Read the first issue of the oldest LGBTQ newspaper in the United States – printed on only one page. Enjoy a presentation of items from our collection donated by celebrities including Ellen DeGeneres, Harvey Fierstein, Alan Cumming, Carson Kressley, and Rosie O’Donnell.
