Thank you, Mary!
So happy to be a part of this event tonight! Our lesbian bars are at risk, and I would be devastated if The Wildrose in Seattle ever closed. It’s one of my favorite places on earth—during my 20s, I danced myself sweaty, sang same love, drank margaritas, made bffs with the bartenders, and took every okcupid date here.
No magic heteronormie genie is coming down to save our spaces, so if we have the energy & resources, we’ve got to take care of these iconic places— not just for us, but for the closeted & scared. Lesbian bars have served as a backdrop for queer epiphanies (and Lea DeLaria brilliance in First Wives Club) for decades. They aren’t just bars— they’re families!
SO! come hang out tonight for #savethenight with Cameron Esposito, Leo Sheng, Sydnee Washington and everyone on this STELLAR lineup and save our spaces.
