“Our rage and our joy aren’t at odds with each other; they’re both integral to our history, our present, our future.”
My partner and I are avid travelers. As queer residents of New York City, we also often play tour guide for visiting family and friends when we’re not on the road. We encourage our guests to experience New York City beyond selfies in Times Square, including everything from outdoor movies on the historic Intrepid aircraft carrier, to New York Philharmonic concerts in the park, to food festivals in Brooklyn where you can enjoy a ramen burger and craft beer while viewing the Manhattan skyline.
We also recommend that our queer visitors pay homage to and get wild at some of the longest standing LGBTQ bars that have played an important role in serving our community, such as Stonewall, the site of the Stonewall Riots that sparked the modern LGBTQ rights movement in the U.S., and Henrietta Hudson, the oldest brick and mortar queer women’s bar in New York City. We are also acutely aware that tourist guides fail to educate our visitors about the rich, diverse LGBTQ culture that exists beyond the bar scene, such as Voguing Balls and the largest LGBTQ fashion shows hosted at world renowned museums.

Meet Pride & Tech DC, founded by PBS developer Lindsey Dragun. Its next event is on Nov. 15.
A new LGBTQIA+ tech meetup called Pride & Tech DC plans to exclude straight allies from certain meetings, but according to meetup founder Lindsey Dragun, that might actually help the group become more inclusive. While Lesbians Who Tech hosts sporadic meetups and General Assembly sponsored an LGBTQA happy hour last month, the 31-year-old Dragun said that #dctech lacks a group that intentionally creates an inclusive space for all LGBTQA+ individuals. Her hope is that Pride & Tech can provide that space.
