The gay/LGBTQ bars in Tennessee have been important social and organizing spaces over the years. Now many of them are hurting, but there may be ways to continue supporting them during the COVID-19 crisis.
Here is a list of bars in Tennessee and links to find out about virtual shows, staff support funds, and in some cases food and drink orders to go. Note: No bars have been left out intentionally. If we have missed a bar, we will be glad to update the list. Just send the information to firstname.lastname@example.org .
