March: The Hidden History of LGBT Milwaukee

The Hidden History of LGBT Milwaukee!
Led by Michail Takach
Sunday, March 11th at 7pm
21+ / Free event (books for sale)

Sex Ed for Adults is kickin’ off the Riverwest Public House Cooperative Anniversary week with a bang! Join us for the Hidden History of LGBT Milwaukee!

Milwaukee has a long, rich history of LGBT spaces and culture. Many of the earliest LGBT landmarks have been erased from the landscape, and surviving historical spaces remain hidden, unless you know exactly where to look.

By the time of the 1969 Stonewall riots, Milwaukee was already home to 33 known gay bars. These early gathering places fostered a sense of community, nurtured unique gay and lesbian identity, and ignited the spirit and culture of local LGBTQ pride.

ABOUT THE PRESENTER:
Michail Takach, author of LGBT Milwaukee, webmaster of the Wisconsin LGBT History Project and Communications Director for Milwaukee Pride, Inc., seeks to make queer heritage accessible, visible, and portable for future generations.

Join Sex Ed for Adults for a one-night screening of the webseries Unicornland! Sure, you could watch at home but watching it with friends is so much more fun! Each episode is only about 5 minutes so be on time.

Thursday, June 22nd / 8pm sharp / Free

About Unicornland:
“Unicornland is an 8-episode webseries about Annie, who explores her sexuality post-divorce by dating couples.

…Over drinks, at dinner, and in bed.

Each episode features a date with a new couple, from Williamsburg hipsters, to Wall Street power duos, to Bushwick burners, as Annie becomes not just sexually active, but activated.

Unicornland was created/produced by Lucy Gillespie, directed by Nick Leavens, and shot by a 70% female cast and crew.

Unicornland celebrates the ethnic and social diversity of New York City, with a cast that’s 60% non-white, including trans, genderqueer and disabled actors.

Unicornland contains themes of polyamory and open relationships, and was made with the full support of the New York sex positive community. In the final episode, Annie attends her first inclusive sex party at the Hacienda Villa, a renowned epicenter of the New York scene.”

Sex Ed for Adults will be returning for our regular second Sunday of the month schedule in July. Keep an eye out for details!
