Alleged Lesbian Activities is part community event, part living archive, part cabaret performance. Imagine: it’s Saturday night at Franki’s, a sticky-floored dyke bar. Performers intermittently dance and croon from a cabaret stage, sip cocktails from glitter encrusted glassware, and interact with the words of LGBTQ forebearers in voice-over, reenacting scenes as described in oral history interviews. Alleged Lesbian Activities investigates the national disappearance of dyke bars and the impacts of their absence on our local communities by conjuring up a dyke bar as sexy, powerful, vulnerable, and complex as the stories we have heard about them.
