The history of the Wildrose, Seattle's only lesbian bar
Community Stories: History of the Wildrose
11/16/201517:14

The Wildrose on Capitol Hill is the only lesbian bar in Seattle, and now one of the oldest on the West Coast. It's truly an institution in the gay community, and keeping the doors open for more than 30 years hasn't been easy. Wildrose, which has evolved with the changing character of the Pike/Pine corridor and lesbian culture, remains a mainstay. Community Stories meets co-owners Shelley Brothers and Martha Manning and celebrates the history of this pioneering bar as a place for fun, self-expression and kinship.
