(Watch Live) Last Wednesday Queer News Tonight brought this story and now we have some fantastic news.

Donors across the world contributed a total of $250,000 to secure the future of the iconic bar which, in many ways, served as the backdrop, birthplace, and catalyst for the modern gay rights movement.

By mid-June, Ebel said his stance about meeting up for sex IRL hasn’t really changed much.'We’re still in the middle of a pandemic, and just because people got too bored and decided to go to the mall again doesn’t mean it’s actually the smart thing to do,' he said.
