Charles Street Meeting House Gay Dance With Jobriath
The Charles Street Meeting House was an important institution for the 1970's era Gay and Lesbian community in Boston.

The Charles Street Meeting House hosted the first non-bar gay dances that welcomed everyone; not just those of drinking age or older.

These dances provided an alcohol and drug free environment.

Although there was a nominal ($1.00) admission; these great people never turned anyone away who could not pay.

As these people were among the angels of my life, I chose to highlight this glass engraving of the Charles Street Meeting House in the brightest white LED's of my collection.

If you look carefully, you can see some people dancing on the platform inside the building.

Did Jobriath perform there?

I don't know.

However, Jobriath was the first openly gay pop star.

I can express my fantasies while creating the art that is on my bicycle on which I spend lots of time pedaling around Portland, Beaverton, and Hillsboro Oregon.
