Here's What Phoenix's LGBTQ Bar Scene Looked Like in the '70s, '80s, and '90s

Metro Phoenix's LGBTQ bar scene has a lenghty history stretching back decades. From the '70s into the '90s and beyond, spots like The Connection, Taylor’s, and Trax flourished, providing members of the community places to drink, dance, and party. We’re taking a look back at vintage photos from many of these spots that were around during that era for a visual retrospective of the Valley’s beloved LGBTQ bars.

Note: Phoenix New Times would like to thank John La Noue, Steven Rogers, and the BJ Bud Memorial Archives at Arizona State University for the use of their photos.
