Slate: We Are Everywhere

Slate: We Are Everywhere. “Mapping the Gay Guides is an online exhibition that shows the growth of queer spaces for “community, pleasure, and politics” from 1965 to 1980 in all 50 states as well as Washington, DC. Built using data from the Bob Damron Address Books, a collection of travel guides that offered detailed information on spaces welcoming to queer people, MGG’s centerpiece is a map that places these bars, bathouses, restaurants, and churches as close to their original locations as possible.” This project launched in early 2020 but I only found out about it recently thanks to a Cal State Fullerton announcement of a grant related to the project.
