In Celebration of PRIDE 2021, Sponsored by Jägermeister, The Lesbian Bar Project is Raising Awareness for Lesbian Bars and LGBTQIA+ Safe Spaces as Part of the #SaveTheNight Initiative

WHAT: Following the success of The Lesbian Bar Project PSA and fundraising campaign in 2020, The Lesbian Bar Project and Jägermeister’s #SaveTheNight initiative will premiere a documentary short that aims to bring greater awareness and prosperity to the remaining lesbian bars across the country. Timed to Pride 2021, “The Lesbian Bar Project” documentary will premiere on Wednesday, June 2 in New York, NY ahead of the online world premiere Thursday, June 3 on Jägermeister’s Global YouTube.

 

Executive produced by Lea DeLaria (“Orange is the New Black”) and Co-Directed by Erica Rose and Elina Street, the documentary short spotlights the bar owners, community activists, and patrons — their struggles during the pandemic, their hopes for the future — and the importance of saving these sacred spaces. In the 1980s there were roughly 200 lesbian bars in the U.S., today that number is fewer than 25. “The Lesbian Bar Project” tells the personal stories of bars and their patrons in three cities (New York, NY; Mobile, AL; and Washington, DC) and the impact on their communities.

 

As the bars continue to disappear at a staggering rate, The Lesbian Bar Project seeks to promote and restore these vital queer establishments helping them not only survive but thrive in a post-pandemic landscape. To donate to The Lesbian Bar Project (fund will open June 2 and will remain open for the month of June) and for more information, visit: lesbianbarproject.com/donate and lesbianbarproject.com.
