Aleco_Graves saidI don't want to sound like the mean one but whats the big deal?... Leases expire. Places get demolished
But... it was a GAY place!!!!
Was that suppose to be sarcasm?
The article is from a leftist gay rag. So something like this IS big news to them. Tells you something about the editorial policy of the organization.
Unfortunately you understand no other culture but US hysteria-news.
Now, if you'd actually read the article you would have seen this:
'‘RVT has been sold and I have been retained by the new owners to operate a new company trading as Vauxhall Tavern London Ltd.’
In an interview with nottelevision.net, Lindsay said he would continue to run the Royal Vauxhall Tavern under a five-year arrangement with the new owners, although he declined to state who they were.
‘The new owners will make a statement in due course.’
He went on to say that the venue would be undergoing internal and external development, including the opening of a new wine and champagne bar on the first floor, but with a view to it continuing as ‘well-loved LGBT venue’.
‘I’ve got five years to get RVT turned around and made into a viable business, but for that to happen we need support from the gay community.’
