TRAVELING IN OUR FABULOUS GAY WORLDL: Historic Gay Places to Visit in America
Traveling anywhere is always fun, interesting, educational and full of all kinds of surprises. But when we do travel we need to remember who we are and take advantage of the many different historical 'gay' places to visit. We have visited most of them however there are always new ones coming up all the time as well as hidden jewels that we didn't know anything about. Here are a few of our very favorite ones:

This STONEWALL INN BAR, 53 Christopher Street in New York City. This bar served as the first battleground of the gay liberation movement in the United States and is now a designated National Historic Landmark. In 1969, gay patrons started fighting back against the police raids which happened all the time at the bar. It triggered the legendary Stonewall Riots. The bar reopened in the last 1990's but closed again in 2006. You can read more in detail at: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stonewall_riots.

The CASTRO CAMERA SHOP, 575 Castro Street was a camera store in the Castro District in San Francisco, operated by Harvey Milk the pioneer LGBT politician from 1972 until his assassination in 1978. During the 1970's it was the center of the gay community as well as his campaign headquarters for the various campaigns for elected office. It now houses the Human Rights Campaign Store.
