Tour Guide

Kimm (they/them) is a queer historian, writer, and youth worker living in Brooklyn. They previously lived in Massachusetts where they worked in non-profits for over a decade. Kimm is the founder of Lavender Education, a national education program focused on celebrating joy and history. Kimm’s debut book, Generation Queer (Tu Books, 2024), is the first collection of illustrated biographies about queer and trans modern youth activists. It’s full of New York and national history!

I give Christopher Street Tours because...

 I’m passionate about people having access to the brilliant, meaningful histories of LGBTQ+ people.

What inspires you to share LGBTQ+ history?

Our current movements, struggles, and joy all have roots in our history and the incredible LGBTQ+ activists who came before us. Understanding our history allows us to connect more deeply with ourselves and our wider community. I love when people have those transformative moments of making connections between today and the past.
