Photographer Fred W. McDarrah created an encyclopedic archive of NYC culture & politics from the 1950s through the 1970s for the alternative newsweekly "The Village Voice," and our exhibition of his photographs opens one week from today on June 6. From the Beats to the Stonewall uprising to anti-Vietnam activism, McDarrah captured the evolving and vibrant life of the Village. #VoiceoftheVillage Also opening June 6 is the companion exhibition, "PRIDE: Photographs of Stonewall and Beyond by Fred W. McDarrah," which focuses on McDarrah’s images of gay pride and other LGBTQ parades, demonstrations, and events. #PridePower

The Village Voice, media hipster ternama dari New York, memutuskan untuk berhenti terbit. Sepanjang perjalanannya, punggawa-punggawa suratkabar mingguan ini pernah diganjar Pulitzer sebanyak tiga kali. Sungguh, sebuah kehilangan yang besar buat dunia jurnalisme. #infografik#pulitzer#villagevoice#USA#journalism
To celebrate #WorldPride and our exhibitions #PridePower and #VoiceoftheVillage , we have created a walking tour that highlights the locations of some of Fred McDarrah’s most iconic photographs. The photojournalist took hundreds of photos throughout NYC, many of which were featured in the Village Voice. Along the McDarrah’s Village tour on @UrbanArchiveNY, you can visit the buildings, parks, corners, and cultural centers he captured in his work and see how much has changed or how much has stayed the same.

Turning 51 and proud!!! Since its my birthday week.... 🤗😊🤩 My friend (RIP) who plucked me out of coat check at my first retail job at 19 at #ReminiscenceLtd@NYC... said that the photographer of the merman photo from #theVillageVoice became a fame fashion photographer. Wish I knew who he is!! I think i had a few #VillageVoice fashion ads that made my mama smile! Probably my greatest achievement though was when my college instructor asked if I would design and make something for one of the UK's biggest Northern crisp company and I opted to make a ball gown made entirely of crisp wrappers!! So,,, I think I've lived life, had several of what #andywarhol would say is your "15 minutes of fame"... and waiting to see if I can achieve several more! 🤗😍🤩💖💋 #ificanturnbacktime#thosewerethedays#whenyouwereyoung#accomplishments#life#throughtheyears#15minutesoffame
Go to the @glasserienyc for mouthwatering modern takes on classic #MiddleEastern flavor combinations, from labneh and za'atar to pistachio and rose. The best thing to order on their menu is a series of small plates, mezze style, with the rich, flaky griddle bread as the centerpiece. Highlights include the melty, roasted cauliflower with cured labneh; harissa rabbit cloaked with paper-thin slices of pickled kohlrabi; and whatever lamb is on the menu.
Iranian-American journalist and TV political commentator Camelia Entekhabifard (aka: Camelia E. Fard or Camelia Entekhabi-Fard) ((@cameliafard)) is The Independent Persian's Editor-in-Chief and author of "Camelia: Save Yourself by Telling the Truth—a Memoir of Iran" .
Camelia was born in Tehran in 1973. While in high school and university, she became active as an emerging poet and painter. She then turned to journalism, writing for a number of papers, including the leading reformist daily, "Zan" [Woman: in Persian]. In 1999 she conducted research on women earning money in the Iranian city of Qom, a center for Shi'a scholarship and pilgrimage, by engaging in temporary marriage with pilgrims and religious scholars, in what she called a thinly veiled form of prostitution.
This work resulted in her being imprisoned for 11 weeks in Towhid Prison. She was held in solitary confinement, and charged with breaching national security and challenging the authority of the Islamic regime.
During her incarceration she initiated and cultivated a fake romantic attachment with her abusive interrogator. His passion secured her early release, but soon she realized she had to leave Iran, and him, and try a career in America.
Upon her release in 2001, she came to the United States as a student and political refugee. Since then, she has has been a contributor to The New York Times and has reported on Iranian and Afghan affairs for Associated Press, Reuters, Eurasia Net, the Village Voice, and Mother Jones.
Camelia holds master’s degrees from New York University’s School of Journalism and Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs.
Camelia currently spends her time between New York, Dubai and London.
In her free time, Camelia enjoys the opera, ballet, fencing, yoga and boxing.
Delightful afternoon with I think the last remaining @villagevoice employee, @rcb_see (aka RC Baker). He is getting every issue of the Voice scanned - all 63 years worth - to finally make the entire paper available online.
I stopped into the Voice’s new/old office at 36 Cooper Square with my personal bound volume of the paper’s first year for Baker to draw from.
My dad had collected the first 20 years of the paper; my mom donated those volumes to @nyhistory after he died in 2007.
Saw some real relics, including a Rolodex with info on Crazy Eddie and Jules Feiffer’s first Voice cartoon panel.
We exchanged outrageously true stories about days and times gone by.
At our Halloween party we went into the crowd and interviewed attendees and talent. We found out some interesting things and had some great laughs. It was a fun night.
This new segment from us is called “THE INTERLUDE”. Hit the #linkinbio for the full video.

"Gay power became a news beat at the [Village] Voice, and openly gay Arthur Bell was hired to follow it. Bell explained the movement’s strategies, dissected its debates, and skewered its enemies ... Bell tracked the tortuous saga of New York’s gay rights bill, first introduced in 1971—and passed in 1986. Bell originated the persona of the public gay male journalist ..." (from "Our Hearts Were Young and Gay," by Alisa Solomon for the Village Voice, Oct. 18, 2015)⠀
Born November 11, 1939, Arthur Bell was a journalist, writer and LGBT activist, co-founding the National Gay Task Force -- the first national gay rights organization -- in 1973. His book, "Dancing the Gay Lib Blues: A year in the homosexual liberation movement," was published in 1971.⠀
