Lucky After Dark: Gay and Lesbian Night Club Communities in Pittsburgh, PA (1960-1990)

Harrison Apple, Artist-in-Residence, Center for the Arts in Society, Pittsburgh Queer History Project

Invisibility still dominates the discussion of GLBT community formation in the 20th-century. Assumptions that "gay life" evolved in San Francisco, New York, or LA while smaller cities lagged behind or remained off-the-grid are rebuked by the example of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where a queer working-class underworld evolved in reaction to local conditions, opportunities, and restraints.

Tuesday, April 29;
4:30PM, Giant Eagle Auditorium (Baker Hall A51)
