Queer New York

This Pride Month, take a literary tour of our city’s queer history and culture. From the rise of 19th century Brooklyn’s most famous drag kings Ella Wesner and Florence Hines, and the vibrant—but shrouded—gay male culture of 1890’s Manhattan, to the queer women and trans people of Greenwich Village’s former Women’s House of Detention and tales of modern day meet-cutes on the Q train… the story of queer New York is as layered as the lives of the individuals and writers who helped forge it.
