This Brooklyn brownstone is filled to the brim with books, periodicals, videos, audiotapes, photographs and various ephemera that tell a long and storied lesbian tale. You can visit by appointment only or during several annual open houses – check the website for events. Founded by Joan Nestle and Deborah Edel in 1974, this is the oldest lesbian archive in the world. Be prepared to get lost among its fascinating holdings for hours.
