Madison LGBT History Group: Lysistrata Restaurant
November 11, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
November’s LGBT History Group topic is Lysistrata. This much-mourned womyn’s space was a very popular bar, restaurant and community space located at 319 Gorham Street. An unfortunate fire took it away and caused much lamentation.
Lysistrata Restaurant opened its doors on December 31, 1977 as a women’s restaurant and performance space. By providing a multi-purpose space for socializing, entertainment, and meeting, Lysistrata became a central gathering place for the Madison feminist community. On January 8, 1982, a fire destroyed the restaurant.
The History Group meets from 7-9 PM on the 2nd Wednesday of each month at the Madison Senior Center, which is located at 330 W Mifflin St in Madison, WI.
