Andrew’s Inn was a gay disco, bar, restaurant, hotel, co-counseling site, and community space in Bellows Falls, Vermont from 1973-1984. Those involved were the state’s rural LGBTQ vanguard. Now, for the first time, the Green Mountain Crossroads’ (GMC) Andrew’s Inn Oral History Project is sharing the Andrew’s Inn story. GMC, Marlboro College and Vermont Performance Lab have collaborated on project. HB Lozito, executive director of GMC and creator of the Project, will discuss the history of Andrew’s Inn, share audio featured in the Project, and explain how this project fits into GMC’s broader work empowering rural LGBTQ community members.

Let’s Talk: Coming Out Stories
Coming out — whether it is as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer or allied — matters. Coming out stories can be powerful. Sharing our stories can alleviate a sense of being “the only one,” foster community, and help people be more supportive of equality. Join us as we celebrate National Coming Out Day with conversation, education, and affirmation. Everyone will have a chance to listen — and share.
