"Lost Lesbian Spaces" Panel

Title

"Lost Lesbian Spaces" Panel

Abstract

The Rainbow History Project partnered with LC-GLOBE to present the lunchtime panel “Lost Lesbian Spaces” at the Library Congress. The panel addressed the swift disappearance of local lesbian spaces, such as bookstores and bars, since the 1980s. Dr. Bonnie Morris traced the history of the changing cultural landscape through images, while Denise Bump shared her perspective as former owner of the now-closed local women’s bookstore Lammas. In a Q&A session, members of the audience contributed their own thoughts, as well as memories of the “lost lesbian spaces."
