‘Pride Nights’ in the South Bronx

By

The SoBro LGBT nightlife scene is on fire, not burning: Bruckner Bar & Grill and the Clock Café and Martini Bar, a relative newcomer, are cautiously holding monthly parties "tailored to the borough’s underserved gay crowd," DNAinfo reports. For the borough's gay and lesbian community, these new parties are a welcome alternative to the more heavily promoted, unsavory laser-light affairs held to the north, in Parkchester. "They’re doing it for the wrong reasons,” says drag performer Appolonia Cruz. “They’re not doing it so the community has a place to go — they’re doing it for the gay dollars.” [DNAinfo]
