Name: Bar Stories – Our Stories hosted by AARP Maine
Date: June 21, 2024
Time: 5:00 PM - 8:00 PM EDT
Event Description:
Join AARP Maine in celebrating Bangor Pride weekend as we explore the history of LGBTQ+ bars in Maine with Bar Stories – Our Stories. Although the modern LGBTQ+ civil rights movement is usually considered to have begun with New York’s Stonewall rebellion in 1969, LGBTQ+ bars throughout the United States predated that event, including here in Maine, where Portland’s first gay bar, Roland’s Tavern, opened in 1967. This event at Husson University’s Gracie Theatre will feature a 5 p.m. reception where you can enjoy appetizers and drinks (including one complimentary beer or wine per adult 21+) and get to know more about AARP’s work on behalf of the 50-plus in Bangor and throughout Maine. At 6 p.m. we’ll screen the documentary Bar Stories from Queer Maine followed by a discussion with the filmmakers and other guests. This event is free to everyone, but registration is required. To register, visit https://events.aarp.org/event/barstories/  or call 877-926-8300.
