Queer History at the Historic Center's Main Landmarks In this part, Part 2 of 2, of the Gay History experience, we will learn about Mexico's LGBT history as it developed after the clash of East & West, when the Aztecs met the Spaniards, 500 years ago. We will talk about a nun who asked the Pope for permission to dress and live like a man in the New World. You will see the Inquisition's burning grounds for sodomites; a Diego Rivera mural at Alameda park where men had fun under, the only openly LGBT monument in town & the subway's gayest station. By the Juárez plaza we will learn of García-Lorca's frustrated visit to Mexico," the Holocaust & of a Mexican diplomat who rescued thousands from the Nazis. In Chinatown we will understand the introduction of drugs into the LGBT community & discover the life of a great American gay writer in Mexico while in a centenary cantina. At the Convent of San Francisco we will talk about the only known escapee from the Inquisition & be appalled by the French pastries' inheritance. We will see the shoe styles worn at the famous Cross-Dressing Ball of "Those 41" in 1901 & stroll past the office of Dr. Fagg above the first porn cinema. Before going to Gay Bar Row & the Mariachi plaza, we will see the main cruising street & alley, learn about the bath circuit, the Army's LGBT policy & porn censorship while discovering amazing gay art.

We will make a stop at a vintage ice cream shop to taste exotic, tropical, local, ice cream or sherbet flavors.
I thrive to show the unique and vast history of Mexico City along its art & food; from the city's founding by the Aztecs in 1325 to modern times; not in a boring way but in one that I expect may amuse you. For 21 years, first as a hobby & then as a regular activity, I have researched & shared a history that was left in the closet for most of its parts; first to help advance the fight for equality & then to share: two World Heritage sites while meeting new people & enjoying my original Gay History experience which showcases the gay & lesbian side of history as we see the city Historic Center's main monuments. I share the stories from the LGBTQ+ community that shaped us at the places where it happened. Sor Juana, Cotita de la Encarnación, Frida Kahlo, Ignacio de la Torre, Amelio Robles, Salvador Novo & Carlos Monsiváis are a part of it.
