Taking back the bar
As formerly regular patrons trickled into the bar on Villard Street wearing purple shirts, they barely recognized the mahogany decorated walls of the new sports bar that used to be a gay-friendly bar, Neighbors.
Members of the University chapter of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer Alliance organized a take back Neighbors night as part of Gay Pride Week.
"Neighbors was a great place to bring together queer guys and queer girls," said Angela Messerli, University student and co-director of the LGBTQA. "We really want our own space. We want a place to hang out and be ourselves, and now it's gone."
OK, first thing, they keep adding letters to their acronym. LGBTQA... this is so they can include every type of possible sexual degenerate. Don't want to make anyone feel left out.
Second, you really want your "own space?" What about the Boy Scouts? I thought that they weren't allowed to ask for their "own space?"
Third, why does it have to be a "take back" event? Can't you just go there and have a good time? Does everything have to be a conflict to you? Does everything have to be about your sexual orientation? Sheesh.
