Back in October, old-school clubgoers gathered at Minglewood Hall for the first-ever George's Reunion. George's — originally at 1786 Madison — was Memphis' first gay bar. It went through several incarnations and locations before finally settling at Front and Huling as GDI's on the River, but that club closed in 1990.
George's fans are still around, which they proved by showing up in full force at the reunion event. Videographers Tim Goad, Ty Phillips, and Kent Hamson documented the historic event, and their footage is now available in a two-disc DVD collection. The discs contain red-carpet interviews by Corey Welch and guest interviews by Allysun Wunderland, as well as performances by the George's Proud Choir, the "Showplace of the South," and a "We Are Family" finale.
You can purchase the disc here. Fifty percent of the proceeds will benefit the Memphis Gay & Lesbian Community Center.
