New Orleans Looks For the Remains of 4 Victims In 1973 Gay Bar Fire

This happened before my time, but I’m glad they’re at least doing something about it now. 

Apparently, there was a fire in a gay bar in New Orleans in 1973 and 31 people perished. And now the city of New Orleans is searching for the remains of 4 bodies. 

“The City’s callous and deeply inadequate response … rooted in pervasive anti-gay sentiment” made suffering worse for victims’ families and friends, states the motion written by Councilmember J.P. Morrell.

Here’s more. This is what it was like back then for gay people. The straights didn’t even respect our dead. 

It’s a very interesting article and there are photos taken of the space after the fire. I used to always worry about going to certain gay clubs when they were jam-packed with people. I never felt safe so I tried to remain near the exits.
