October 26, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
A Historical Panel Discussion on Gay Bars in Las Vegas, circa 1970s-1990s
Social gathering place, dance club, hook-ups, community center – gay bars in Las Vegas served as much more than just places to enjoy drinks with like-minded friends. Join a panel of long-time Vegas residents who will discuss their adventures and experiences at some of these bars back in the 1970s & ‘80s. Su Kim Chung, Curator of the LGBTQ Collections at UNLV Libraries Special Collections & Archives, will moderate the panel and showcase historical materials and artifacts from Le Cafe, Snick’s Place, Maxine’s, and other early gay bars in Las Vegas.
