Free LGBT Bike Tour: Berlin Invents Homosexuality - Queer History
Overview of the tour in Berlin
In a nutshell: the story before stonewall. LGBTQ movement started before in Berlin. Lots of 1st’s. Interesting queer stories. We bike slow, no hills. Bikes are available for €9 a day by app in Berlin. Everybody who did the tour loved it. A guide with passion.
The Homolulu Berlin tour takes you by bike to historical places in Berlin and tells about homosexual history from 1850 to1935, like the world's first public outing, the world’s first gay activist group, the world's first gay and lesbian magazine, the world's first sexological institute and we dive into the nightlife of the golden twenties. It also explains how Berlin became such a liberal place as it is today.
We start at Unter den Linden, stop at Gendarmenmarkt pass by Brandenburg Gate and bike through Tiergarten, pass Bundeskanzleramt on our way to Spreeufer, and finally discover in Schöneberg the queer areas of Nollendorfplatz and Motzstrasse.
