Mapping the Gay Guides

Each year Bob Damron’s Address Book expanded and added new locations, updated entries, and provided readers with a refreshed guide exploring LGTBQ America. The interactive map below displays each of the locations listed in the Damron Guides by year. The filter controls below the map allow users to filter the data by year, type of location, and by the amenity categorizations that Damron used each year. For more details on the variables below, see our methodology which explains each category in depth.
