This purpose of this project is to commemorate and honor lost womyn's space--both ancient and modern. This can mean anything from lost women's colleges and schools, to lesbian bars and clubs. And everything sacred and profane in between.

Revolution (Atlanta, Georgia)
1492 Piedmont Avenue Northeast, #B today
Location: 1492 Piedmont Avenue Northeast, #B, Atlanta, Georgia, USA
Opened/Closed: Mid 1990s
The description at Clubplanet is so brief as to be almost meaningless:
Revolution - Large gay bar and club: crowd is mostly lesbian.
That's about all I've dug up. And the only reason I ever found out about Revolution in the first place is that it's mentioned in a January 2012article called "Why can't Atlanta sustain lesbian bars?"
Of course, the article mulls over the same laments we've seen in cities all over the country, if not the world, over the past few years. Lots of possibilities are tossed out as to why lesbian bars are in such short supply these days, but no overarching theory is proposed--which is fair enough.
Today, the location is occupied by Mixx, a "mixed" gay bar.
