Community and Change

LGBTQ+ people from across the North Shore found a sense of community in bars, restaurants, churches and public events.

The bars closed when the city rolled back closing time and new online connections presented an alternative way to meet people. Marriage equality and a greater acceptance of LGBTQ+ people removed the need for the safe haven the bars provided.

Today’s community is dispersed and comes together during pride week, on Facebook pages, and at bar reunions.
