The History Behind the Dance
Kindred Spirits was more than a nightclub that Marion E. Coleman founded in 1980. Kindred Spirits Nightclub was a community center and a hub for Houston’s LGBTQ community, hosting organizational meetings, fundraisers, and theatrical presentations. It became a focal point for many women and an important place where our community gathered during the AIDS crisis to help organize care for those in need. The bar closed in 1989, but over the years, many patrons asked Marion to hold a reunion dance. In 2002, the first Kindred Spirits Dance was held, with proceeds benefiting local nonprofits serving LGBTQ women. The Montrose Center is honored to carry on this tradition. We welcome old friends to come relive their favorite Kindred Spirits memories and welcome new friends to come make new memories with us at this special event.
