Abstract

Professor Nancy Unger talked about the role of gay bars in American history. Professor Unger said that by the end of the 19th century, bars and clubs catering to homosexuals could be found in most major American cities. She argued that these establishments offered gays and lesbians not only a place to socialize, but served as venues for creating movements to push for more social and legal acceptance.
