Description: For more than one hundred years, gay clubs and bars have served as sanctuaries and party-spots and hook-up sites. They’ve been the secular centers of community and education. But also of violence and persecution that ultimately led to great advancements in pride, rights, and freedoms. This richly illustrated talk by Santa Clara University history professor Nancy C. Unger highlights the history of a long and colorful American tradition in the LGBTQ community: the gay bar.

After the Forum, please join us for a lunch at 12:30pm. The lunch is complimentary for first-time visitors and students. This event is sponsored by Humanist Community in Silicon Valley
