RIP Gay Bars


The aughts saw the death of a whole slew of gay establishments where we drank, canoodled, and made all new frenemies, and fortunately, Dan Avery of Next magazine has taken the time to put them all together into a handy little souvenir commemorative map to enjoy while savoring the bittersweet memories.

Remember raunching it up in the bathroom at Roxy?

Groping the straight gogo boys at the seedy strip bar Stella’s?

Serving attitude at the uppity lounge XL?

Buying a book at Oscar Wilde?

Why do I suddenly hear silence?
