Boot up Zoom and set your background to Julius' Bar for an anniversary party celebrating the 1966 Mattachine Society "Sip-In" at Julius’ Bar, which helped establish the right of gay folks to be served in bars.
You'll hear from NYC LGBT Historic Sites Project's co-director Ken Lustbader and special guests who will retrace the steps of four Mattachine Society members whose defiant actions made history.
Settle in with a set from DJ Yestergay (Kyle Supley) and words of welcome from Project co-director Ken Lustbader. Then, you'll be taken through an immersive Zoom tour of the four bars visited on April 21, 1966 with co-director and architectural historian Andrew Scott Dolkart. Stay for a Q&A and more music.
