Facebook invite here.
Join the GLBT Historical Society, Supervisor David Campos, owner Lila Thirkield, and other Lex lovers for an official celebration of The Lexington Club! On Monday, September 19 at 3 pm sharp, we’ll be gathering to unveil a commemorative plaque honoring the iconic San Francisco lesbian bar, which closed last year.
Located in front of 3464 19th St. at the corner of Lexington Street in San Francisco, the plaque recognizes the incredible contribution the Lexington Club made to the LGBT community in San Francisco, particularly in providing a space for queer and trans women. During its 18 years of operation, the bar was known for its wild nights, “never a cover” slogan, famous restroom graffiti, great staff and community support.
Speakers will include Supervisor David Campos, Amy Sueyoshi from the GLBT Historical Society, and Lexington owner Lila Thirkield. After the short ceremony, we’ll head over to the nearby Phoenix Bar and Restaurant (811 Valencia) to raise a toast to the Lex.
