A Buried Past, Forgotten Stories: The Sexual Underground of the Meatpacking District before Gentrification—The Photographs of Efrain John Gonzalez is a photographic retrospective of the cultures and people who lived and played in the Meatpacking District from the late 70′s till the turn of the century. The photographs are records of the trans, gay, bisexual, and fetish clubs, gatherings and events that populated this neighborhood until market forces, big money and real estate interests washed them all away. The exhibition draws on the film archives of Efrain John Gonzalez, a photographer who has carefully preserved images of the people and clubs of these neighborhoods and who continues to work to save their unique stories and their precious culture.

6 PM: Reception
7 PM: Slide Show and Talk

A Buried Past, Forgotten Stories: The Sexual Underground of the Meatpacking District before Gentrification—The Photographs of Efrain John Gonzalez will be on view at the Bureau from April 2 through May 31, 2015.
