From the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission comes the story map Taking Pride: 150 Years of LGBT History. This story map "documents the history of LGBT culture in and around Greenwich Village" and is organized chronologically with the nineteenth century, the early twentieth century, and the time period after the Stonewall riots of 1969 as the main eras of focus. As readers scroll through this interactive presentation, they will see a map showing the locations of important LGBT historic sites accompanied by historical photographs and short explanatory text. While the map is automatically zoomed in to highlight the specific location being discussed, users can also zoom out to see all of the pins at once. Examples of the more than twenty sites highlighted in Taking Pride include Pfaff's, which was one of Walt Whitman's favorite haunts; playwright Lorraine Hansberry's residences; and the Keith Haring Studio and Foundation. Taking Pride provides general audiences with a quick, accessible visual overview of Greenwich Village's LGBT history.
