Throughout history rarely have LGBTQ+ clubs, meeting places, and social areas been landmarked or turned into a museum. House museums that were once homes to Queer residents can pose difficult questions about the interpretation if the former residents were not public about their identity in their lifetime. Many important sites in Queer history simply don’t exist anymore.; clubs have closed, publications have shut down, buildings have been razed or radically altered, but these are still spaces that exist in the history and memory of the Queer community. Panelists will discuss their memories of Queer nightlife in Boston, as well as the ways they have used artistic mediums to bring these spaces back to life.
