The Bridgeport is listed in several national 'Gay Bar Guides' from 1962 to 1966, suggesting it was open from about 1962 or earlier, to 1965 or 1966. Only one brief local reference has been located to date.
More information about this business is welcomed from anyone who can contribute it.
(A book, "LGBT Milwaukee" by Michail Takach, seeks to make the story of LGBT Milwaukee accessible, visible, and portable for future generations--before it is too late. Some information on this bar came from research that Michail continues to do in preparation for a future book. Please help support our efforts by purchasing the book, and corresponding with us if you have more info.)
