Recording: RIP Lesbian Bars: Creating Spaces For LGBTQ +WOMXN, Mar 10, 2019

As the LGBTQ community gains more acceptance in the world, we’ve seen a smaller amount of spaces dedicated to the community, specifically ones for womxn. Although equality is what we continue to fight for, we don’t want to be homogenized into the greater public. This would make us less visible and less accessible to those seeking out their community. With the closing of lesbian bars, we need to pioneer the new movement that creates community without solely depending on a bar. This panel will discuss why it’s important to continue to create these spaces without having a brick and mortar location, and why the “temporary” separation is necessary. Last, we will discuss why cities with womxn focused events have a significantly higher attendance as a whole during Pride celebrations.
