TIME TRAVEL BACK TO LGBT HISTORY ON JUNE 29

Fewer than 10 mi.

Saturday, June 29, 2019


We all know about the Stonewall Riots, but there was plenty of queer history in New York before the queens started throwing beer bottles at cops outside the Stonewall Inn. We’ll meet in front of the Stonewall at 10 a.m. on June 29th, but the idea is to travel back in time to important queer locales before Stonewall happened. We’re staying in downtown Manhattan, but there is a lot to see! The old Kenny’s Castaways building on Bleecker has yielded artifacts from a basement establishment called The Slide, a gay bar dating to the 1890’s. A “slide” was a hook-up in the parlance of the day, and the club earned the sobriquet “the wickedest place in New York” from the New York Press. The old Coleman House Hotel on Broadway and 27th had a bar in the basement, Pfaff’s, where Walt Whitman tippled with the boys; he mentions it in an unfinished poem: “The vault at Pfaff’s, where the drinkers and laughers meet to eat and drink and carouse…” Three brownstones on MacDougal speak to women’s history, too. One was a club for unorthodox women run in the nineteen-teens by lesbian anarchist Polly Holladay (137 MacDougal), one was the site of the Heterodoxy Club (135 MacDougal) brought downtown by Henrietta Rodman, and a third was once Eve’s Hangout (129 MacDougal), started by Eva Kotchever, where a sign on the door stated “Men are admitted but not welcome.” And there’s plenty more to see and talk about! You will need a bike, a helmet, a lock and some tolerance for Bob’s fascination with LGBT history; expect to be out! in the streets for a couple of hours. There is an option for brunch or drinks at Carroll Place, a Village restaurant, afterwards. RSVPs welcomed, especially for brunch; contact Bob Nelson at 212-567-7160 or fastnfab@gmail.com
