Stop #13: Frankie's! Frankie's is the second of Oklahoma's three lesbian bars. We visited Frankie's on a Tuesday, which happens to be family night at the bar. These are the stories of the humans we met there.
Raven got her start in drag at 16, performing at the Wreck Room, Oklahoma City's now closed all-ages LGBTQ+ club. Nearly 30 years later, you can find Raven performing almost exclusively at Frankie's. Tracy has been going to lesbian bars in Oklahoma City since the late 1970s, and has owned Frankie's with her wife, Ann, since 2017. Holly helped Tracy and Ann get the bar up and running, and she and her partner Smokey are now regulars there. You'll have to listen to find out how Smokey got her name!
