About The Works:

A little history of The Works… The Works was first established in 1977 by the late Stan Berg as “The Body Works” on North Senate Avenue in downtown Indianapolis. Stan was a pioneering LGBT activist in Indiana who also published The New Works News, containing important information to the community at a time when few other information sources were available. The Body Works opened during the first week of June 1977. In the late 1980’s the State of Indiana purchased the North Senate Avenue property for parking related to its government offices. Stan procured the current location at 4120 North Keystone Avenue, where it has operated since that time.
