Specialty Themed Tours

New in 2019, Doors Open Pittsburgh presents "Specialty Tours" offered throughout the year!

In 2019 our Specialty Tours have included:  "Ride With the king:  Black History Tour" and "Forged By Diversity:  Pittsburgh's Ethnic Neighborhood Tour."

Our next Specialty Tour, "Come As You Are: Pittsburgh's Rainbow History Tour" is on Saturday, June 15th.

DOORS OPEN Pittsburgh presents the first-ever, city-wide tour that will enlighten, provoke, inform, inspire, educate, stimulate, and begin to tell the evolving story of Pittsburgh’s “rainbow” history.

Pittsburgh’s queer community expresses, prays, survives and advocates.  These themes will be the focus of the tour, as we celebrate the diversity of an intersectional and multi-faceted community.

Join us as we offer a respectful and mindful peek into Pittsburgh’s LGBTQ+ heritage by offering access to some of the most notable buildings, organizations, folklore and historical perspective.
