Gay Green-Wood Trolley Tour

June 7, 2015, 1:00pm3:00pm

Trolley_Color

 

Kick off Brooklyn Pride Week (June 8 – 13) in a most unique way, with an LGBT-themed trolley tour of Green-Wood! Tour guide Phil Desiere – who leads tours of Greenwich Village, Central Park, and other NYC sights – will illuminate stories of Green-Wood ‘permanent residents’ who were openly gay, including “It’s Raining Men” co-author Paul Jabara, and others who were probably gay or bisexual, like Violet Oakley, a member of a “Boston marriage.”

 

Plus you’ll visit the final resting places of those who contributed to LGBT culture in fun, surprising ways, including Louis Comfort Tiffany, the artist and businessman whose fancy New York City atelier is the namesake of gay novelist Truman Capote’s smash hit, Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

 

$15 for members of Green-Wood and BHS/$20 for nonmembers.

 

Green-Wood trolley tours are fully accessible and ADA compliant.
