LGBT New York City
The West Village and Chelsea are NYC’s traditional LGBT neighborhoods. Years ago, people who came out gay were often thrown out of the house by their families. These kids set up house on the abandoned West Side piers. Eventually the neighborhoods nearby became LGBT communities.
Christopher Street is New York’s iconic LGBT street. The Stonewall Riots in 1969 at the Stonewall Inn on Christopher Street in the West Village didn’t start the LGBT movement, but energized it.
The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center or just “The Center” in the West Village is one of New York City’s leading LGBT community centers.
The Latin world has an interesting relationship with its own gayness. Latins tend to be machista (male chauvinists) which is very anti-gay. Yet the Latin world has strong LGBT communities. Go figure?
Anyway, those who complain most loudly about LGBT issues are more often than not secretly gay themselves. Lacking the courage to be who they are, closeted types become public critics.
