This post is for anyone who remembers the Sweet Gun Head and would like to share stories. I worked there and more or less got my start there. It was a magical bar and had the best shows of its era. It would be nice to connect with some of the girls that worked there.

Did you know a performer there named Samantha Hunter? An author named J.T. Sears interviewed her for a book he wrote about the history of gay people in the South. The interview talks briefly about the Sweet Gum Head and the entertainers there. Link is at:
