The ClubHouse, 1975-1990

This exhibit explores the role that The ClubHouse played in the African American gay community of Washington, D.C. Opened in 1975 by Aundrea and Paulette Scott, John Eddy, Chasten Morell, and Rainey Cheeks, The ClubHouse provided the central focus of African-American gay DC social life for 15 years.


This Omeka Exhibit was adapted by Steven Mandeville-Gamble using content curated by dedicated volunteers from The Rainbow History Project for an earlier incarnation of this exhibit in 2005.
