Mary’s Lounge Mural Resurrected: Montrose Improvement Bureau Saves Gay Icon

Work begins today on the resurrection of the Mary’s Lounge mural on Westheimer near Montrose in Houston. The painting, which for years identified the iconic Montrose bar as ground zero for the Houston gay scene, has been weathered, papered-over and obscured. The latest project by Cody Ledvina’s Montrose Improvement Bureau is supposed to be finished just in time for the Houston Pride Festival and parade on Saturday, June 25.

    I am glad you are bringing it back, I know the original artist, Ms Scotty and the drag queen on the mural was my good friend Ms Rita

    What about Fanny’s pictures on the bar counter tops; were they preserved they date from before I was a little queen, 30-40 years of Pride. I hope ‘Michael’ saved the countertop.
