1972 WUGLM Bar and Dance at Hammer House: 1972, August 11 (Friday)

Notes
Flyer for a 1972 WUGLM Bar and Dance at Hammer House
The recto gave the date and a map showing where Hammarskjold House was located; the verso gave a map of the city for out-of-town visitors. Printed on 27.9 cm x 21.6 cm (11.0" x 8.5") paper. The pale purple ink suggests that this was not photocopied but rather mimeographed, probably using a Gestetner mimeograph machine.

The notes, although clearly written in haste and bordering on illegibility in places, contain much interesting information about what transpired when the Faces group took over running dances in 1974 and sold this service to WUGLM. The dates of about 50 Bridgeport dances from 1974 to 1976 are given, as well as attendance numbers for some of them. We have appended a print transcription of the handwritten notes.

1980, Oct.31 GLOW Halloween Dance
PDF file [2.5 Meg.]
Because of the unusually large size of the poster, it was difficult to scan the entire image; all of the side margins of pale blue were sacrificed, and also a tiny bit of the image on the left-hand side; the top and bottom pale-blue margins were also cropped a bit. Our PDF file was created as if it were of an image on A3 paper (42.0 cm x 29.7 cm); because of the significant cropping of the side margins and the slight cropping at the top and bottom, the PDF (at 100% magnification) will be a close match to the correct size of the poster.

1981, Oct.2 GLOW Gay Dance
PDF file [1.2 Meg.]
Although the year is not stated, there is strong evidence supporting the choice of 1981 as the year: (1) these two flyers were located in a donated collection of materials primarily from 1978 to 1988, (2) the only years in that range with an October 2 on Friday are 1981 and 1987, and (3) the costs quoted are consistent with what GLOW was charging in the early 1980s.

Somewhere GLLOWver the Rainbow Dance, 1986, May 31
PDF file [0.4 Meg.]
The poster does not give the year; we deduce 1986 as the most likely year, by the following arguments. The name GLLOW was in use from October 1985 to October 1998. The only years in that span where May 31 fell on a Saturday were 1986 and 1997. GLLOW advertized other events at the Cabaret in 1988 and 1989, but no later. The admission costs listed are closer to those for 1988 than 1989. Hence 1986 seems the most likely year.

GLOW Valentine's Day Dance, 1989, Feb.4
PDF file [0.6 Meg.]
The year is not given. We place it at 1989, because of the following arguments. GLLOW advertized other events at the Cabaret from 1986 to 1989, but no later. The admission costs listed are closer to those for 1989 than 1986 or 1988. The problem is that the name given is GLOW, rather then GLLOW, which was in use from October, 1985 to October, 1998; we presume that the name GLOW on this poster was a mistake.

GLLOW Dance Circles, 1991, October 25
PDF file [0.9 Meg.]
The first poster lacks the year, but gives Friday as the day of the week. The dance club Circles was in existence under that name only from 1990 to 1992. The only year in that range in which October 25 fell on Friday was 1991. The second poster is more problematic; it omits both the year and the day of the week. Because of the similarity in the text on the bottom half of both posters, and the fact that all of the GLLOW dances held at Circles that we know of were held on Fridays, we are taking these two posters as being for the same event. Note: in 1990, October 25 fell on Thursday, and in 1992, October 25 fell on Sunday; this strengthens the argument that the year of the second poster was also 1991.

The poster lacked the year. The films screened were filmed in 2003 and 2004. The year 2006 is the first year after that with a February 2 falling on a Friday; so 2006 is a likely guess.

This listing was probably created some time in advance of the week of events, since the name for the dance on Friday, March 10 had already changed from Big Gay Dance Party to Gay Bash by the time the two posters for that specific event was created.

GLOW Coming Out Week 2007
PDF file [1.0 Meg.]
Although this poster gave the year for the celebrations, it inexplicably omitted the month and days of the month. National Coming Out Day is internationally recognized as October 11, which occurred on a Thursday in 2007. So, for the week listed as Sunday to Saturday in the poster to have included Thursday October 11, GLOW's Coming Out Week would have had to been from October 7 (Sunday) to October 13 (Saturday).
