Updates on The Stud

South of Marketers were saddened to learn that The Stud — the oldest LGBT bar in San Francisco, and the first worker-owned cooperative queer bar and performance venue in the United States — is permanently closing down at its 9th and Harrison Street location.

A funeral will be held online on May 31st at 6 pm.  Everyone who’s life was touched by the Stud is encouraged to attend. The broadcast link and more information will be available at Studsf.com.

However, we were pleased to hear that The Stud, the nightlife entity, is not dead. They have every intention of reopening as soon as possible in a new space, but “with the same lovingly outrageous vibe”.

We can all help make this possible:
