WATCH: How a campaign is renewing its push to keep America’s 21 lesbian bars afloat

A new documentary opens with a startling statistic: There were at least 200 lesbian bars, at their peak, in the late 1980s. Today, 21 remain.

The 20-minute film is part of the Lesbian Bar Project’s renewed fundraising push to support the surviving bars. Last year, the bars had to adapt amid shutdown orders and social distancing measures that greatly impacted bars and restaurants and clubs throughout the coronavirus pandemic. In November, the Lesbian Bar Project raised more than $117,000 to help the bars. This year, during the month of Pride, they’re aiming higher, attempting to raise $200,000 to build on that effort.

The PBS NewsHour’s Amna Nawaz speaks with filmmakers Erica Rose and Elina Street, co-creators of the short documentary, about the mission for this project, why lesbian bars are disappearing and why these spaces ought to be preserved.
