Women At The Gateways Club 1945-85


Frequented in its 50-year history by ordinary women and those in the public eye such as Dusty Springfiled and the Maureen Duffy, the Gateways, on Chelsea's King's Road became the most famous lesbian club in the world after it featured in the film The Killing of Sister George in 1968.   Before gay liberation ever hit the headlines, 'Gateway Girls' could be seen on screen dancing cheek to cheek in the underground bohemian tavern.  Now in this, the first full-length account of women at the Gateways, 80 contributors recall this secret world, many of them speaking publicly for the first time.  Their stories, moving, humorous, romantic and erotic create a vivid picture of lesbian lives duringa period of social transformation, when gay women moved from the secrecy of the closet, whatever the consequences.
