I have developed and lead an LGBT-focused tour at Green-Wood Cemetery, a National Historic Landmark in Brooklyn. The Gay Graves Tour will introduce you to the famous and the not-so-famous gay men and lesbians who are among the permanent residents at Green-Wood. The Gay Graves Tour is conducted entirely on foot; the amount of hilly territory covered makes this a vigorous hiking tour.Beginning at the fabulous Victorian Gothic gate to Green-Wood, we visit the final resting places of four gay composers: Louis Moreau Gottschalk, Leonard Bernstein, Paul Jabara and Fred Ebb, as well as those of two groundbreaking lesbian artists, Violet Oakley and Emma Stebbins.Amid centuries-old trees, fabulous works of art, and bucolic surroundings enjoy a fascinating dose of gay history, New York history and U.S. history during this unique tour. Check the website for the dates when the Gay Graves tour is given. It can be booked privately; e-mail me to make arrangements.
