An excellent read in which Krista Burton tells us about her travels to 23 lesbian bars in the USA immediately after the pandemic lockdowns. She tells us about the importance of these places, their individual stories, different lesbian cultures across her country and much more, with a lot of thoughts about who belongs in lesbian spaces, from feminine lesbians who « look straight » to trans men and even straight people.

This book made me nostalgic about times I didn’t experience myself. Now I wanna visit all the lesbian bars.

A very fun book at different lesbian bars across the country. The author tied in her personal life story throughout. It was interesting, although the phoenix chapter did feel like the bar’s story was sidelined in exchange. Still the joy at queer community was palpable through the entire book, and anyone who is interested in that community would find this book a good read.

The way I heard about this book is that we saw Krista talk at the Word Play festival in Minneapolis. Being a hetero, cis-gender man it wasn't the kind of book that I would pick up at the book store. Krista was so personable and funny in her presentation that it made me interested to read the book. I knew nothing about lesbian bars before starting and so it was a great adventure to follow along as Krista visited the bars while also giving some light history. Krista's voice carried the fun and lighthearted tone throughout the book so it felt more like a travel book than a lecture. Krista is one of the most likable authors I've ever read and I felt like I was tagging along on a road trip with a good friend.
