Big Queer Historical Bar Tour of Portland Maine on ZOOM

Wed. June 22nd, 5:30-7:00pm, $10 admission

Join the LGBTQ+ Collection of the Jean Byers Sampson Center on Zoom for a virtual historical walking tour of Portland's LGBTQ+ bars. The tour will take you to seven locations that have been the site of at least seventeen different LGBTQ+ bars in Portland, Maine. We’ll be talking about the history and importance of these spaces in the LGBTQ+ community, and how they grew and changed with Portland from the 1960s to today.
