Rae Bourbon (aka "Ray Bourbon") began show business in silent movies, during the 1930s and 40s, he was known for his gay themed nightclub review and performances in cities around the globe. "A Trick Ain't Always a Treat" was the last of eleven albums Bourbon self-produced in the 1950s and 60s.
I have heard that the 307 became a gay bar/ drag venue in the 70’s when it was purchased by a Mormon, but it is possible that the bar served a clientele who where homosexuals, much earlier than thought. Especially since there are stories about a circuit later deemed the Fruit Loop, that dates back to the 40s and continued until the 90s. It was a place where men could find the company of other men.
There is very little written documention about these early days of the Gay and Lesbian community here in Arizona, but these stories are worth saving especially in time of such cultural change.
While writing this I am listening to this classic camp album from another era via archive.org, and just heard a Goldwater Presidential joke.
