Portraits of Pride: Frances Gordon
Pride month is underway! To celebrate, we're sharing “Portraits of Pride” each week throughout June, featuring SAGE participants. This week we're introducing Frances Gordon, a lesbian originally from Georgia who has called New York City home for so long now that it "feels like forever".
Frances stays fit with a regular workout routine, but she loves a good party, too. She remembers past Pride celebrations at a women's bar called Bonnie & Clyde's, which was on West 3rd Street in New York City (you can read more about it here).
Bonnie & Clyde's closed in the mid-1980's, and Frances remembers that women's bars were sometimes hard to keep track of. She says that they opened and closed so quickly that "sometimes they only lasted a month or so". Regardless of the location, Frances celebrates SAGE Pride with grace and a terrific smile!
