Chelsea Leather Bar Is Being Squeezed Out

Chelsea Leather Bar Is Being Squeezed Out

The Rawhide is a long-running, dark, comfortable neighborhood hangout for leather gays, but the place has suddenly become the object of some heavy duty S&M.

The new landlord has virtually doubled the rent and Rawhide has been sent packing like a man.

The bar--which opened way back in 1979--is being evicted from the space as of March 31.

Talk about a raw deal.
