The Queerly Festival at FRIGID New York presents: Ladies at a Gay Girls’ Bar, 1938-1969

June 29, 5 – 6 pm.

A 1990’s teen lesbian explores history and reckons with the power of femininity in this solo dance/theatre performance. Maggie Cee brings the history of 20th-century american fem(me)/butch lesbian bars to life, illuminating the feminine women whose stories are too often forgotten, but whose strength and determination paved the way for the gay rights movement that followed.
Audience Pick, Philadelphia Fringe Festival; Philly Mag 2022 Festival Pick; Editors Pick, Boston Globe Sunday Magazine. The Hartford Courant’s Christopher Arnott calls it a “major highlight” of the Hartford Fringe Festival. This intimate performance imagines the queer past and passions between people who loved, fought, and created space to be themselves out of sheer necessity and determination.
