Fly Robin Fly: That Disco-Crazed Moment When The Gay 90's Came Out Of The Closet

From KFAI Minneapolis | Part of the MinneCulture In-Depth series | 28:06

Gay_90_s__1964 In downtown Minneapolis, there's a gay bar with several dance floors conveniently named the Gay 90's. The Gay 90’s hasn’t always been gay. The bar began as a supper club for a straight crowd. It opened in the 1950s and the name was a reference to an earlier decade, the 1890s. Then, in 1975, the vibe changed in a big way. The owners of the Gay 90's bought a disco ball, hired DJs, and turned the 90's into a club catering to gay men. In this original KFAI documentary, “Fly Robin Fly: That Disco-Crazed Moment When The Gay 90's Came Out Of The Closet” by KFAI's Todd Melby, you'll hear a history of the bar featuring some of the people who worked, danced and connected at the Gay 90's. Theme music by Xavier Santiago. Other music by J. Melby. Thanks to the Tretter Collection at the University of Minnesota for photography and oral history audio.
