LOST LESBIAN SPACES: Rainbow History Project’s Pride Month event
A lunchtime panel at the Library of Congress
Tuesday, June 16, 2015 | 12:00-1:00 p.m.
LM-139 (Madison Building, 1st floor)
Come join local experts DENISE BUMP, ERIN HAWKINS, NATALIE ILLUM and BONNIE MORRIS explore the swift disappearances of women’s bars, bookstores, and festivals from the 1980s to 2015. How will we remember spaces such as Sisterfire, Mothertongue, the Hung Jury, Lammas Books, and more? Will we see new cultural spaces for lesbian expression emerge in our nation’s capital? And how do we archive the recent past? Bring your lunch, your stories, your ideas.
