To further celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Fairness CampaignPreservation Louisville is partnering with the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) civil rights organization to increase awareness of historic LGBT sites in Louisville. Along with spotlighting 105 W. Main St., which is a Louisville Local Landmark and part of the “Whiskey Row Historic District” in the National Register of Historic Places, oral histories will be collected documenting local sites’ significance in the LGBT movement from those who visited or utilized them first-hand. Preservation Louisville and the Fairness Campaign request all persons with suggestions of LGBT historic sites in Louisville call the Fairness office at 893-0788.

    Wait, so are there actually any documented or notable occurrences of why these landmarks are significant to the gay community? Or, like everything else the gay community does, are they going to redact their movement into every possible corner of society?

    Count me skeptical, but this seems a lame attempt at historicizing something in the service of identity politics. Pathetic. I think I might work with Preservation Louisville to help document historic sites important to the pedophilia and necrophilia movement in Louisville, equally promising communities.
