February 1, 2016: Join the Project for a launch party for Project founder Steven Brawley's new book, Gay and Lesbian St. Louis! In the late 19th century, St. Louis—America's fourth-largest city—was a hub of robust commerce and risqué entertainment. It provided an oasis for those who lived "in the shadows." Since 1764, the Gateway to the West's LGBT community has experienced countless struggles and successes, including protests, arrests, murders, celebrations, and parades. This is the first known book to be published that solely focues on the LGBT history of St. Louis. Book available for purchase at the event. Complimentary refreshements will be provided.
Parking: Lots one block north and one block east; street parking (street meters free after 7pm).
