The COVID-19 pandemic has put many LGBTQ spaces at risk of closing permanently.
Across the nation, a number of LGBTQ venues are struggling due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Social distancing and local health guidelines have forced many of these spaces to either remain closed or significantly limit their capacity.
In an effort to support some of these venues, GayCities and GoFundMe have teamed up to raise funds through their #SaveQueerVenues program.
LGBTQ social venues have supported us for decades by offering not only a safe space to gather but also existing as the epicenters of liberation and social justice for the LGBTQ community. Today, these historic bars and clubs are struggling to pay rent due to the pandemic. They need our support to keep from closing.
With GoFundMe, we launched GayCities’ LGBTQ Nightlife Relief Fund in an effort to save these critical venues from closure so they can to continue exist for future generations to come. Make a difference by donating to support the LGBTQ community.
