Join us for a Queer Newark Walking Tour!

QNWT flyerThe Queer Newark Oral History Project would like to welcome you to join us for our two brand new walking tours next month on July 6th (Military Park Newark Downtown Tour) and July 13th (Newark Gay Pride Encore Tour)!

The QNOHP tour will highlight the rich and illuminating experiences of the city’s LGBTQ and gender-nonconforming communities. Featuring both historical landmarks and contemporary sites, tour leaders will share stories about key events, significant happenings, and interesting personalities that showcase the resilience of an often-invisible population of Newarkers.

The group will leave from BURG in Military Park:
6pm to 7:30pm on July 6th
6:30pm to 8pm on July 13th

No registration necessary! Free and open to all! Be sure to wear comfortable shoes and bring a bottle of water!
