On the first Friday of every month, Guerrilla Queer Bar takes one straight bar and turns it gay. Your friends are probably already going, so shouldn't you?
This Friday, November 1, at 9pm, we're taking over a bar in the Fenway. We won’t say that the World Series had anything to do with our decision. We also won’t say that it didn’t. As always, the area is announced the Monday before, and the venue is announced on Thursday. Sign up below to find out where we're headed this Friday.
GQB: A Little History
Boston's Guerrilla Queer Bar launched in 2007 with a simple question: why shouldn't gays be able to experience every bar in Boston the same comfortable way that straight people do? So, on the first Friday of every month, we would get a few friends together and head to a bar. Pretty soon the gay gossip networks were twittering and hundreds of LGBTQs were showing up. And then, in 2011, Boston Magazine chose us as the best gay bar in Boston. And in 2012, they chose us again. The funny thing is that we're still not a bar.
