“Where Girls Will Be Boys” - 440 Broadway

Originally opened in 1934, Mona's Club moved to 440 Broadway in 1939 and is credited with being San Francisco's first openly lesbian club. The venue featured female entertainers dressed as men, an inverse to the transgender theme of nearby Finocchio's which brought a new form of sexual tourism to Broadway. Mona's popularity among a lesbian, bohemian, and tourist clientele paved the way for more lesbian clubs to open in North Beach, contributing to a liberal convention that would influence later generations. Mona's 440 Club became Ann's 440 Club in 1953, serving a similar clientele as an entertainment venue.
