A Jägermeister-Sponsored Documentary Toasts the Last Remaining Lesbian Bars in the US

A short film and fundraiser aim to preserve the dwindling safe spaces

Lesbian bars have a long and storied history in the U.S., providing many queer women safe spaces to meet over much of the last century. With the bars’ numbers around 200 in the 1980s, it may surprise some to learn that there are fewer than 25 remaining today. The pandemic has taken a toll on this already-dwindling number, and the threat of losing these spaces forever looms large.
