Black Owned Gay Bars Are Slowly Disappearing

This seems to be a trend everywhere. Gay bars all over the world have been shuttering and I’m not sure there’s anything anyone can do about it. It’s not just in the US either. It’s global. You really can’t blame it totally on COVID either. There’s been such a strong societal shift in the last decade or so I don’t ever see us going back to the way things once were. I just didn’t know about these statistics.  

The closures have had a disproportionate impact on bars catering to women and people of color: Between 2007 and 2019, LGBTQ bar listings dropped by an estimated 37 percent, and those serving people of color plummeted by almost 60 percent, according to the study. 

There’s more to read, here.  It’s a very long and fascinating article that gets into much more detail. They even talk about the history of black owned gay bars. 

 New Book 



“A wonderful story that I loved. The characters were well developed, and strong. Gus: A sweet young man. Doing something for all the wrong reasons. Craig: his boyfriend, he’ll go along with anything Gus say. Henry: Gus father a no nonsense man, who’s husband died last year. I enjoyed this story.”
