Wash Blade: Opposition to Move of Gay Clubs
This link is to the paper's blog, so if it doesn't take to the article, just click on "the latest" & scroll until you find the piece. This article from the Washington Blade describes the emergency meeting called by Ward 5 Councilmember Vincent Orange last Friday regarding the possible relocation of 1-2 gay oriented businesses (possibly clubs) to the Ivy City neighborhood. A few ANC Commissioners are briefly quoted, including Kathy Henderson, who stressed that her opposition to any new clubs, or strip bars would stem from concerns about disorder & other spill-over issues such businesses can generate, and not from the fact that these businesses would cater to a gay clientele. One can only hope that the unidentified male audience member (who identified himself as a youth counselor) just mispoke when he used the word beastilality to describe what he thought would go on in such businesses.
