Queer St. Paul walking tour

Discover St. Paul’s often overlooked lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer past on this tour curated by Stewart Van Cleve, author of “Land of 10,000 Loves: A History of Queer Minnesota.” Walk in the footsteps of Gertrude Stein, Alice B. Toklas and Oscar Wilde; stand on the site of the city’s earliest known gay bar; find out where two transgender pioneers made history simply by seeing a movie and which building has housed seven queer bars and a bathhouse annex since 1977.

 

This tour includes about two hours of moderately paced walking on uneven terrain.

 

The tours will be held on Saturday, July 15 and 22, from 10 a.m. to noon, beginning at the northwest corner of Wabasha Street and Kellogg Boulevard in St. Paul.
