One of the most talked about names in Chicago gay nightclub history is The Bearded Lady, who is now a bit of a legend because many who remembered her are either dead or were too drunk to remember anything.

Today historian Owen Keehnen joins us to chat about his new book ”Dugan’s Bistro and the Legend of the Bearded Lady” which looks at the life of the Bearded Lady, who ruled the roost at Dugan’s Bistro, a Chicago disco that pioneered the use of spectacle in nightclubs, later adopted by clubs like the famous Studio 54.

    Mark and Fausto,

    Thanks for having Owen on. I’m glad to hear everything in connection with “Dugan’s Bistro and the Legend of the Bearded Lady.” BL would be proud.
