Location: 41 Vivian Street, Wellington, New Zealand
Club 41 was the first lesbian club in Wellington, New Zealand. According to one account, it was started by a Māori lesbian, Diana Sands. I have also seen it reported that a group of four lesbians bought the lease and ran it as a women-only club until it closed due to licensing problems - it apparently had no legal liquor license.
After Club 41 closed, lesbians went to The Pub, Ghuznee Street in Wellington, which was started in 1977. The Pub closed after being firebombed in 1980.
