I worked by a popular Chelsea watering hole. I absolutely agree that a Black gay bar would be a space to let our guards down and be free.

I absolutely agree that a Black gay bar would be a space to let our guards down and be free. So, it leaves me to wonder who will take on the task of building and creating that gay Black safe space in a prime area of the city that people would want to frequent? However the reality is if you build it they will come. And if that privilege is apparent in OUR spot and boundaries are crossed, then I know as gay Black men we would have no problem reminding white gays or any other group that this is our safe space. QPOC have so much creativity when it comes to finding our own spaces and thriving while in them.
We are constantly impacting the culture of the city. What Black entrepreneurs and business owners can be reached out to invest in and continue to create these spaces? I respect the culture at Latinx bars because I know this community has fewer gay safe space options like gay Black men, so I respect it. QPOC have so much creativity when it comes to finding our own spaces and thriving while in them. So, I wonder what we can do to converge these diverse types who all want a safe space to call their own.
