Tour & Talk: Queer Nation: Starting A Movement

  • McCarthy Square Waverly Pl & Charles St New York, NY 10014 (map)

Join Christopher Street Tours on a elite experience of “Tour & Talks,” a two-hour LGBTQ history walking tour in the heart of New York City’s Greenwich Village, with a one-hour talkback from an influential member of the LGBTQ community. Groups are limited to 10 guests to provide an intimate conversation afterwards with the featured speaker.

This Tour & Talk will feature Ken Kidd, “a loud and proud rabble-rouser in the LGBT and HIV/AIDS communities for more than thirty years.” Ken is currently Director of Special Projects and Events at NYU’s College of Arts and Science. Ken has helped to organize and participate in many major protest actions of ACT UP, Queer Nation, the Gay and Lesbian AntiViolence Project, Gays Against Guns (GAG), and Rise and Resist. Notably, in 1991, Ken was one of four to conceive and bring “Day of Desperation” to the floor of ACT UP and helped to organize that action that shut down Grand Central and 42nd Street. He was an original member of Queer Nation from its first meeting through its actions against Vladimir Putin’s Anti-Gay Propaganda Laws in 2013/2014 and its successful 2015 efforts to kill the fatally flawed Employment Nondiscrimination Act (ENDA) and assisted in crafting the wording for and the successful launch of The Equality Act in Congress.

Ticket includes a two-hour walking tour, one-hour talkback, and one drink ticket for cocktail or non-alcoholic beverage.
