Feature Presentation 12:15pm – 2:15pm Wolfe Recital Hall Upstairs Inferno Robert L. Camina – USA On June, 24, 1973, an arsonist set fire to a gay bar in New Orleans called the Up Stairs Lounge. For 43 years, it was the largest gay mass murder in U.S. History. Despite the staggering historical significance, few people know about the tragedy. Thirty-two people were killed and some bodies were never identified because they were ashamed that the victims were gay. The prime suspect was never charged with the crime. The tragedy did not stop at the loss of lives. There were also the delay injuries: lost jobs, fear, public ridicule and utter lack of concern by the general public, government and religious leaders. The fire permanently altered lives and was the root of many lifelong struggles.
