San Francisco Chronicle: Coronavirus shutdown pushes Bay Area LGBTQ community to reinvent

San Francisco Chronicle: Coronavirus shutdown pushes Bay Area LGBTQ community to reinvent. “The Bay Area’s shutdown, now nearly six weeks in, has affected everybody. But there are differing degrees of disruption, and the queer community has been hit hard in its own, unique way. Bartenders and promoters and DJs and drag performers and go-go dancers have all lost their jobs. And the broader community has lost refuge — places to feel free, connect, flirt and make art…. There’s also a strong history of resilience. So, as the community goes online in the short term, it’s also figuring out how to support those in nightlife and the spaces hit hardest, to make sure there’s something to go back to.”
