Above is a screenshot of a recently published article from The Blade which discusses the closing of Cobalt, a very popular bay bar in Dupont Circle. This article is indicative of, and thus helps trace, the continued loss of spaces specified for members of the LGBTQ+ community. The Blade has been covering the LGBTQ+ community since 1969.

This is an image of the ceiling of the lobby of the Dupont Circle Club. Hanging from the ceiling is a string with a lot of different keys with name tags. These keys are meant to acknowledge each of the key supporters of the Club, who are people who have made a substantial donation to the Club that has helped them keep the doors open.

This is an image of what can be thought of as the doorbell for the Dupont Circle Club. It is located next to the interior/second door of the building, which is located directly in front of the stairs that actually lead up to the Club. In the bottom right of the image, one can see a sheet of paper that lists all of the different meeting times for all of the different recovery groups. This paper can also be found as a handout in all of the meeting rooms and as yet another piece of paper mounted on the wall in various places throughout the Club.

This is an image of the bulletin board found mounted on the wall in the Dupont Circle Club’s lobby. As one can see, each of the individual boards is dedicated to a certain topic: the first one is dedicated to general information and announcements (this is also where the mission statement can be found); the second one is dedicated to sober fellowship activities; the third one is dedicated to anniversaries and new meetings; and the fourth one is dedicated to treatment programs and sober living.

This is an image of the type of chair that is found in all three of the meeting rooms. In the two bigger meeting rooms, these chairs are lined along the walls but also arranged in rows in the remaining space of the room, as somewhat seen here. However, in the smaller meeting room, these chairs are only lined up along the walls (as one can see here).

This is an example of the other types of things that can be found on the walls of the Dupont Circle Club that are not addiction recovery related posters. Such inspiring and uplifting quotes and phrases are quite frequently used to decorate throughout the space. However, framed photographs can also be found decorating some walls.
