"Christopher Street Should Have a Walk of Fame!"
That's what one of the big winners at the Get Out magazine awards at Splash told me the other night.
The Christopher Street bar Boots & Saddle won awards for its staff, its karaoke night (with lovely Victoria Chase), and other aspects as well.
But owner Robert Ziegler deserves a special honor for crusading against the continuing crime wave that has hit that area in the past few years.
As he told me:

"Christopher Street needs to be landmarked, to reduce crime, and for the sake of future generations.
"There should be rainbow flags up and down it!
"There should also be a walk of fame, with stars of people who were instrumental in the early gay movement."
I'll start with some names of legends who absolutely need to have stars there:
Marsha P. Johnson
You can finish the list.
And don't say Rin Tin Tin!
