New York City Gay Guide

New York is the birthplace of the LGBTQ rights movement, as it is home to the famous Stonewall Inn. The Stonewall riots marked the beginning of a diverse community fighting back against oppression, with trans women of colour throwing the first bricks at police raiding the Inn, which was a safe space for people who were rarely safe anywhere else in the city. Today New York is a safe and welcoming city that is proud of its history, and Greenwich Village is now one of five main neighbourhoods that each has a unique queer scene and culture of acceptance.
