You will visit the graves of important LGBTQIA+ figures including “It’s Raining Men” co-writer, Paul Jabara; sculptor of the Angel of the Waters sculpture atop Central Park’s Bethesda Fountain, Emma Stebbins; activists and founders of the Hetrick Martin Institute, Drs. Emery Hetrick and Damien Martin, among others. This trolley tour is led by Andrew Dolkart, Co-Directors of the NYC LGBT Historic Sites Project, and Neela Wickremesinghe, the Robert A. and Elizabeth Rohn Jeffe Director of Restoration and Preservation at Green-Wood.
