You will visit the graves of important LGBT figures including “It’s Raining Men” co-writer, Paul Jabara; sculptor of the “Angel of the Waters” statue atop Central Park’s Bethesda Fountain, Emma Stebbins; activists and founders of the Hetrick Martin Institute, Drs. Emery Hetrick and Damien Martin, among others.
