Guerilla Roving Bar Event Comes to a Close.

Today’s Post reports that after five years, 43 bars, and 48 events, the roving bar gathering known at Guerilla Queer Bar ended last Friday at the Rhino Bar and Pumphouse. Guerilla has been the friendliest of activist movements, in which gay men and lesbians descended on a typically “straight” bar for the evening and mingle among the regulars.

I think as we reflect back, its been a positive event. It has introduced both members of the GLBT and straight community to each other, people that otherwise would never meet. While its easy to focus on peoples’ differences, the visibility has also put the spotlight on their many similarities.
