Time Out says

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.

Here's the schedule:

6pm — Happy Hour, chat and music with DJ Yestergay - Kyle Supley

6:25 — Kick-off by Project co-director Ken Lustbader

6:30 — Special guest Helen Buford, owner of Julius’ bar

6:35 — Virtual tour of the 1966 "Sip-In" with Andrew Scott Dolkart
