Out in Naptown: Gay Life in Indianapolis

The t-shirts of the Chris Gonzalez Library and Archives can help us piece together the history of Indianapolis’ gay community from the past forty years. From bars and picnics to sports and newspapers, gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgendered citizens have produced a vibrant culture in the Circle City, helping in small part to answer that often-contentious question of just what is a Hoosier.  

How do the past experiences of LGBT Naptowners compare with those of larger, more prominent gay communities in New York and San Francisco?
