1 p.m. Gay Green-Wood Trolley Tour

June 14, 2014, 1:00pm3:00pm



Close out Brooklyn Pride Week (June 9 – 14) in a most unique way, on Green-Wood’s first ever LGBT-themed trolley tour. 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 some 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, among them 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.
