Gail Golec will premiere the final episode of her audio podcast series about the first gay bar in Vermont, Andrews Inn in Bellows Falls, on Friday, June 23 at 7:00 PM at Stage 33 Live, 33 Bridge Street in Bellows Falls. Limited seating, reservations by 6/22 are recommended; the event will be recorded and filmed.
Gail is a professional archaeologist and the creator, writer, editor, researcher, producer, and host for a podcast called The Secret Life of Death. A cemetery nerd, the podcast is a way for her to draw lines from the past to the present by showcasing the life of a random regular person buried in one of the thousands of historic cemeteries throughout New England.
Lately, however, she’s taken a deep dive into the history and times of the Andrews Inn, which from 1973 to 1984 was located in the current Hotel Windham in Bellows Falls. It was the first gay bar in the state of Vermont.
Gail will premiere the sixth and final episode of the series in a listening event at Stage 33 Live, 33 Bridge Street in Bellows Falls, on Friday, June 23 at 7:00 PM. The previous five episodes are available on The Secret Life of Death website at www.thesecretlifeofdeath.com
Gail will make introductory remarks, and field a question-and-answer session after playing the episode. The episode’s run-time is about 40 minutes.
Admission to this listening event is free; reservations made by 6/22 are recommended. Donations will be accepted for Out in the Open, a nonprofit organization that connects rural LGBTQ+ people to build community, visibility, knowledge, and power. See www.weareoutintheopen.org for more information about Out in the Open.
THIS EVENT MAY REACH ROOM CAPACITY. Reservations made by 6/22 are recommended: email firstname.lastname@example.org with a name and how many people will be in the party. If capacity is reached via advance reservations, that will be prominently noted on the stage33live.com website.
