Lance Bass Is Building America’s Biggest Gay Bar
In a time when all gay venues have been shuttering and disappearing all over the globe, this story is interesting just from a social POV. To be clear, it wasn’t COVID that has been shutting down gay bars. With the onset of gay dating apps, the Internet in general, and more public acceptance from the mainstream, gay bars have been disappearing almost everywhere. Once again, here in New Hope, we had 4 hugely popular gay bars up until most recently. They are all gone now and I believe that’s because of all the social changes we’ve been experiencing in the gay community everywhere. At one time Tony and I spent most of our weekends at the gay bars in town, including Sunday afternoon tea dance. We stopping going about 10 years ago.
With that said, it’s not stopping Lance Bass from doing this.
Per , plans are underway to build the largest LGBTQIA nightclub in America at the former Rage site, backed in part by entertainer Lance Bass who has been a big player in the Boystown scene over the past several years.
Here’s the rest. I think it’s a wonderful idea. I hope it works out well for everyone. In fact, I’ll be curious to see how it works out.
