Hoist a beverage of your choice and join Michael Ryan and Kyle Supley, creators of Gay Bars That Are Gone, for a PRIDE-filled discussion on how they used archives and oral histories to bring the stories of historic LGBTQ watering holes across NYC to life. Chat about preservation opportunities and missed chances for these often endangered cultural sites. Discuss how existing historic gay bars – and their patrons – are preserving themselves during the pandemic.
