Queer History Walks

Join us for a free walking tour exploring the rich queer history of the Whitney Museum’s neighborhood. This walk will bring visitors to select historical sites that once provided a place to find and create queer community. 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 the city’s history.
