Sex Ed for Adults is kickin’ off the Riverwest Public House Cooperative Anniversary week with a bang! Join us for the Hidden History of LGBT Milwaukee!
Milwaukee has a long, rich history of LGBT spaces and culture. Many of the earliest LGBT landmarks have been erased from the landscape, and surviving historical spaces remain hidden, unless you know exactly where to look.
By the time of the 1969 Stonewall riots, Milwaukee was already home to 33 known gay bars. These early gathering places fostered a sense of community, nurtured unique gay and lesbian identity, and ignited the spirit and culture of local LGBTQ pride.
