The Gay Graves Tour: It’s in “Out”

“New Jersey is the poorest place in the world to give concerts, except Central Africa.”
—Louis Moreau Gottschalk (1829–1869)

Just in time for All Hallows Eve, Walk About New York’s Gay Graves Tour gets a fabulous writeup in the November issue of OUT Magazine. We are thrilled with freelance-writer Chadwick Moore’s article titled “Lesbian Angels, Bare Backsides.” Click on the photo of Louis Moreau Gottschalk’s gravesite at Green-Wood Cemetery, a National Historic Landmark in Brooklyn, to read the article. Mr. Gottschalk’s grave is the first gay grave stop on the Gay Graves Tour.

The gravesite of Louis Moreau Gottschalk

Louis Moreau Gottschalk, 19th-century America’s version of Liberace and a confirmed bachelor pianist, died at 40 in Rio de Janeiro of a burst appendix. He was leading a 700-piece orchestra in one of his own compositions, “Morte.” The All Hallows Eve theme continues!
