What we're about

This group is for all who wish to increase their understanding and appreciation of lgbt history and culture. We’ll be attending gallery exhibits, lectures and talks, films, plays, and readings. All are welcome to join us in celebrating the lgbt community in a stress-free, no-pressure environment.

Greece, the Homeland of Democracy, Philosophy....and Same-Sex Love

Some of you know me from the gay history lecture I gave last spring at the Center, or the gay history and art walking tours I've given for our Meetup in Greenwich Village and the Met. My company, Oscar Wilde Tours, also gives multi-day tours in Europe. Check out our tour of Greece, May 20-29, 201: http://www.oscarwildetours.com/gay-greece-travel-tours/ This is the first gay history tour of Greece ever (can you believe it?); it covers a lot of fabulous history and art and in particular the same-sex sides of the ancient Greek culture. 4 nights in Athens, 2 on Mykonos, 1 each in Nafplio, Olympia, and Delphi; an extension to Istanbul is also available. Hope you can join us--let us know at[masked] or [masked] (and to get a $200 discount, mention the LGBT History and Culture Meetup).
