A Night at Eldorado: a Pride Event at the Illinois Holocaust Museum & Education Center

Thursday, June 15, 2023 26 Sivan 5783

6:30 PM - 8:30 PMIn Person at the Illinois Holocaust Museum (9603 Woods Drive, Skokie, IL 60077)


In the early 20th century, Berlin was the center of LGBTQ+ life. LGBTQ+ people frequented a variety of clubs, bars, and cafes where they could gather and socialize openly in affirming spaces. Berlin’s reputation as an LGBTQ+ haven soon became a staple of tourist literature, and quickly became a destination for those seeking community and the freedom to be in public spaces as their true selves.

The Eldorado was one of the most famous clubs and was frequented by both LGBTQ+ people and their allies, who were drawn to its festive atmosphere that attracted artists, celebrities, locals, and tourists alike. The Eldorado was shut down 90 years ago, soon after the Nazi regime came to power. 


Temple Sholom and Or Chadash are proud to partner with the Illinois Holocaust Museum and OUTspoken! for a celebration of LGBTQ+ life, in the spirit of the Eldorado and Weimar-era Berlin before the Nazis came to power. The evening will feature six Chicago LGBTQ+ Storytellers, music by DJ Stryfe, free signature cocktails, and food. 


This event is free to the public, but registration is required.

This program is proudly presented in cooperation with Illinois Holocaust Museum & Education Center’s LGBTQ+ employee group, Outstanders, whose mission is to create a welcoming community for LGBTQ+ individuals and provide resources for education, awareness, and outreach.
