Free Beer Tomorrow: Documenting the History and Culture of Ohio’s Longest Running Lesbian Owned and Operated Bar

June 25 @ 6:30 pm 7:30 pm

Come visit the Gahanna Branch of the Columbus Metro Library for an Ohio Humanities’ Speakers Bureau event with LuSter Singelton and Julia Applegate!

In a casual format, filmmakers and storytellers, Julia M. Applegate and LuSter P. Singleton, discuss the creation of their upcoming documentary, Free Beer Tomorrow. Free Beer Tomorrow: tells the story of Jack’s A Go-Go/Summit Station – Ohio’s longest-running lesbian owned and operated bar. In the process of making the film Applegate and Singleton meet former professional women’s football players, lesbian tap dancers, feminist activists, pool sharks, bartenders and drag kings. They also explore the emerging crisis of loneliness and social isolation among elder lesbians in the context of the disappearance of lesbian centric community spaces..

Julia M. Applegate, MA, MPH is an HIV and LGBTQ+ health advocate, researcher, and administrator who has taught Women’s Gender and Sexuality Studies classes at Ohio State, Wright State University, and Ohio University since 1996. Presently, she is directing and producing an Ohio Humanities-supported documentary film project that tells the story of Ohio’s longest running lesbian bar. 

LuSter is a Zanesville native fascinated by the intersections of ‘isms’ and how they inform and instruct positive perceptions of faith and gender in our daily lives. They are a community leader and creator of queer programming, educational series, presenter-led-discussions and more. Currently, they are co-directing an Ohio Humanities-supported documentary film project that tells the story of Ohio’s longest running lesbian bar. 

This event is a part of Ohio Humanities’ United We Stand initiative.
