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.
