I give Christopher Street Tours because...

Understanding LGBTQ+ stories and lived experiences is essential if we want to continue to fight for LGBTQ+ liberation going forward.

What inspires you to share LGBTQ+ history?

I am inspired to share LGBTQ+ history because I believe that in order to continue blazing a path forward, we need to understand where we’ve been and where we come from.

Best NYC Recommendation

Prospect Park is arguably better than Central Park! Both were designed by the same urban planners, but Prospect has more charm. Hidden trails and waterfalls, summer shows at the Bandshell, winter ice skating at LeFrak; there is truly something to do year-round. Plus, you’ve got the Brooklyn Botanic Garden and Brooklyn Museum right there!
