When not many places were safe for LGBTQ+ people to be themselves, Pioneer Square's bars and taverns offered a refuge, a place to make friends, meet lovers, dance and dress with relative freedom. Join host Rosette Royale as he takes us through this historic neighborhood and shares stories of the people and establishments that were home to LGBTQ+ communities as far back as the 1930s.

You can watch the video version of this episode here to see these historic buildings as they are now, and as they were.
