Gay New York City

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.
