Queer History at Historic Center’s Main Landmarks

This experience is given in English only or in Spanish only, please double-check your selected date.

In this part, 1st of the Gay History experience, you will learn about LGBT ancient traditions at the Aztec House of Legacy before “these unspeakable sins” were punished by the Spanish Inquisition.

You will see the Inquisition’s Palace, a prison for sodomites, its hidden homophobic messages & the Old Customs House at the starting point of El Camino Real, turned a safe territory for gay couples, centuries ago.

At St. Mary of the Instruction we’ll talk about cloistered lesbians before a landmark place that we call “Crossroads of Diversity,” where we share the stories of the cross-dressing ball of “Those 41” and that of Emiliano Zapata.

Homosexuality in early 20th century is seen by Frida Kahlo’s high school & that of “Los Contemporáneos,” a group of gay scholars.

We will talk about being a lesbian & a feminist in the 17th century as we visit the old economic hub of the Spanish empire while famous buildings line the full way.

The home of Mr. Ignacio Vallarta (Puerto Vallarta) & the religious symbols outside are another focus point.

We will guide you to many more surprising, centuries-old secrets amidst old convents & cantinas & will point to the beginning of ‘Gay Bar Row’ which you can visit in Part 2, booked separately.
