What a Weekend!

the 80s Madonna gay bars Ft Lauderdale Divine The Copa in Ft Lauderdale! My teenage stomping grounds! I was actually there for the Divine concert. Memorial weekend, 1984. 17 years old.  I remember it like it was yesterday! CHANGED MY LIFE! I saw so many fabulous shows at the Copa – Divine, Grace Jones, Pia Zadora, Earth Kitt, Jennifer Holliday, Phyllis Diller – all the greats on the Pansy Circuit. Really molded my camp sensibility, I think. I can’t remember why I didn’t go to the Madonna show, though. But wow, what a weekend! Seeing this really takes me back. Good times. I heard that in 1992 Hurricane Andrew just picked up the Copa like it was Dorothy’s house and smashed it to smithereens and now it’s a strip mall or something. Sad.
