A slice of Las Vegas history is captured in the signs and marquees that are being preserved at the Neon Museum. Now, the display will include the history of gays, lesbians and transgender performers in Las Vegas. Some of the earliest shows featured female impersonators and other ambiguously-gendered performers such as Christine Jorgensen, dubbed in the 1950s as "The World's Most Talked-About Personality."
The big signs from these shows can now be seen at the Neon Museum.

You won’t find a paywall here. Come as often as you like — we’re not counting. You’ve found a like-minded tribe that cherishes what a free press stands for. If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
