Editor's note: An earlier version of this story misspelled the last name of the owner of Spectrum. The owner is Helen Shepard. Commented responses to Graham's letter vary between gratitude for establishing an LGBTQ hub to lamentations for losing an adored recreational center. The Lamb was wildly popular, but overextended itself trying to serve the disparate needs of a diverse population. Before the Lamb, there was no gay-centric bar in Eugene for almost 10 years.

Eastern Washington and northern Idaho aren't exactly hotbeds of gay culture. Rural in nature, with conservative track records, this part of the inland Northwest sees far fewer visitation from LGBT visitors than the Pacific Northwest hot spots, such as Portland and Seattle - and even Eugene , Tacoma , Olympia, and Bellingham. Still, there are a handful of communities in this part of the world with relatively liberal social leanings - such as the increasingly hip and vaunted wine-making center of Walla Walla, WA, which is a couple of hours southwest of Pullman, and the gorgeous mountain town of Sandpoint, ID, which is about the same distance north. Additionally, the city of Spokane, Washington , about a minute drive north of Pullman, has a couple of gay bars and the popular Spokane Gay Pride celebration , held each year in early to mid-June.
