Making the Queer Scene at the Museum of the City of New York
Tuesday, December 6, at 6:30 pm
Museum of the City of New York
1220 Fifth Avenue at 103rd St.
Whether at pioneering lesbian bars like the Clit Club, East Village drag and performance spaces in the 1980s and ’90s, or today’s Brooklyn-based dance parties celebrating queer and trans people of color, bars and clubs have long been places where LGBTQ people have come together to socialize, celebrate community, and push back against social prejudice. Join the Museum of the City of New York and a group of writers, performers, and activists as they discuss the historical and ongoing importance of queer nightlife in New York.

$25 for adults, $20 for seniors, students & educators (with ID), $15 for Museum members. Includes Museum admission.
