Las Vegas in Clark County, Nevada — The American Mountains (Southwest)
The Red Barn
Judy Bayley, co-owner of the Hacienda Hotel and Daydream dude rance, hosted charity gay hayrides from ranch to the Red Barn..."everybody'd show up and was usually bombed outta their mind. To see some of these guys on a horse that'd never been on a horse was hysterical! I would be a wrangler on those rides (and) I ended up pulling some rescues.
The Red Barn offered popular drag shows such as Fabulous Fakes and RB Follies, and it provided a place for the gay community to socialize. The club also published the "RB Bag," one of the earlies gay magazines in Southern Nevada.
The Red Barn closed in March 1988, and the abandoned building burned down later that year. The only remaining piece of the renowned property is its neon martini class signage, whichvis now part of the Neon Museum's collection.
Erected by Fashion Show and Neon Museum.
