Ladies at a Gay Girls’ Bar, 1938-1969
About This Event
“Ladies at a Gay Girl’s Bar: 1938-1969…sweetly explored the femme/butch dichotomy in lesbian bars over half a century ago. Cee is a graceful, down-to-earth performer who’s passionate about her subject…and tells it through dance, pre-recorded voices, oral histories, fictional characters and well-chosen music.” Christopher Arnott, The Hartford Courant
Ladies at a Gay Girls’ Bar, 1938-1969 is a solo performance by Maggie Cee that imagines and explores the queer past and passions between people who loved, fought, and created space to be themselves out of sheer necessity and determination.
Maggie Cee explores her years as a teenage gay rights activist, her own identity, and fem history – illuminating the feminine women whose stories are too often forgotten, but whose strength and determination made the gay girls’ bars come alive.
Because not all stories are recorded equally, this piece seeks to go beyond the archive, connecting the dots to explore the emotional heart of fem history.
