In one of the most historic places for kentucky's lgbtq community so to twenty four east main street has a long and storied history in the lgbtq past This has been a site associated with the lgbtq community. Maybe since as early as the nineteen twenties When a bar opened here called the mayfair wasn't particularly a gay bar But it was known as a gay friendly space. I went through several iterations including the southern cocktail lounge. But it's nineteen sixty four when this space becomes the guilded cage and that is when it becomes really the first openly gay bar at this site Ran by a gay male couple. Originally from chicago named john hill. And estelle wilson the guilded cage allowed for things like male couples to together female couples to dance together And it also allowed for drag shows The bar would change name several times.

They get married here at twenty four east main street. Their names were marjorie. Joan and tracing night and they would go on to sue the state of kentucky for a marriage license the first lesbian couple in the country to do so out back The result of police stink in terms of trying to temper down attempted sodomy. They arrest Young nursing student named jeffrey watson and geoffrey watson he will contest this charge and eventually take it all the way to the kentucky. Supreme court in kentucky will be the first state to overturn. It's consensual sodomy laws. After the advent of aids and that pace will eventually lead to sort of snowball effect. Other states start similar trials similar contestations and eventual in the state of texas.

The lyric theatre for the first time in fifty seven years hosted a drag show thanks to bluegrass black pride. A great lgbtq nonprofit here in lexington. Lots of lexin. Tony ins today. Steel remember sweets remember sweet spot finally and in a multitude of different ways and sweets is also mysterious. Sweets was alive today. How would sweets identifies sweets. Might identify transgendered But of course those identities that necessarily existed in the way they do today. I personally when talking about sweets. Mix up my pronouns. Sometimes i call sweet. Tea's sometimes i call sweet. She and that was a really common way for folks to talk about swedes to mix up pronouns even within the same sentence so long before a modern trans identity existed people realize the ambiguous pronouns when talking about sweet evening breeze so we are now out on west third street.
