Sad

We note with sadness the passing today of rights pioneer Edie Windsor. She was the lead plaintiff in the Supreme Court case which successfully overturned Section 3 of the Defense of Marriage Act and was a landmark legal victory for the I Support Same-Sex Marriage movement in the United States. Here she is at The Village Voice Pride Awards on June 21, 2017 (Photo © Estate of Fred W. McDarrah).

Fred W. McDarrah was always extremely proud of his Village Voice interns. One of them, Catherine McGann, has a great Larry Kramer photo in the New York Times today. McGann still continues in her career as a prize winning photographer.

Birthday!

Birthday!

Still reeling from last week's election results, but we'd like to wish a happy birthday to Aaron Copland, who was born in Brooklyn 116 years ago today. He made his home on Manhattan's Upper West Side for many years and we'll be celebrating that and other diverse LGBT histories at our @landmarkwest presentation tomorrow night, 11/15. We hope you'll join us!

This outstanding exhibit would fit right in at our new museum.

Today we remember that expression through art is powerful and empowering. We’ve added a new piece, Rise, to our exhibit, “A Murder of Crows: The End Hate Collection.” The exhibit looks at the history of past and present discrimination, gender issues and social culture. Come check it out before it closes at the end of the month.

MANHATTAN: The Louis N. Jaffe Art Theater, an early 20th century Yiddish theater at 181-189 Second Avenue, was later home to the 181 Club (the "homosexual Copacabana"); the Phoenix Theatre, featuring such LGBT performers as Montgomery Clift, Will Geer, Roddy McDowell, Farley Granger, and Eva Le Gallienne; and the residences of photographer Peter Hujar, artist David Wojnarowicz, and Jackie Curtis, drag superstar in Andy Warhol films.

Bringing history to the present.

In 1963, Edie Windsor and Thea Spyer had their first date at Portofino, formerly located here at 206 Thompson Street in Greenwich Village. Windsor would later make history in 2013 after winning the case 'United States v. Windsor,' a major legal victory for same-sex marriage. This site will be one of a preliminary 100 sites that we'll be featuring in our upcoming website launch, so stay tuned! #lgbthistory #lgbt #nychistory #loveislove #thompsonstreet #greenwichvillage #nyc

How it used to be.

This Day in McPhoto: Close-up of the sign on the door of the Eagle Tavern (also known as Eagle's Nest), 142 11th Ave. at 21st St., that lists the dress code, August 31, 1971. The sign reads 'Uniform of the Day; No Shorts, Sandals, Sneakers, Suits; Help us keep YOUR bar leather.' (Photo by Fred W. McDarrah/Getty Images). The site, across the street from Chelsea Piers, is now home to a 19-story steel and glass condo where the rooftop penthouse with a 61-foot pool was sold in 2015 for $50 million.

Interesting take on religion and the LGBTQ community...

Are you tired of the narrative that LGBTQ people can't be people of faith, and that religion is always hostile to LGBTQ equality?

We certainly are. Our Policy Counsel Candace Bond wrote in an Op-ed about her experience building support for LGBTQ acceptance and equality, and reproductive rights, alongside many people of faith dedicated to social justice: http://consciencemag.org/2016/08/22/fundamentalists-dont-own-faith/
