Bar Stories: Maine LGBTQ Oral History Project

USM Professor Wendy Chapkis presents an evening of short films including a 10 minute film focused on Macon Reed’s NYC event for her “Eulogy For The Dyke Bar” installation, and "Bar Stories.” In this 45 minute documentary, two dozen members of Southern Maine's LGBTQ community share funny and often poignant stories about the role in their lives of rapidly disappearing gay bars. The film features such local notables as Nancy Foss, Sharon Moore, Butch Fenton Snell, Chris O’Connor, Erica Rand, Barb Wood, Roger Mayo, Mike McKenzie, and Drew Christopher Joy. Short talk-back with the filmmaker Betsy Carson following the screening.
