Support Queer Women-Owned Establishments!

Saturday, Dec. 6th
White Horse Inn
6551 Telegraph Ave. (map)
Over the last decade, the Bay Area has lost bookstores, restaurants and other community spaces that have been so integral to the Queer community. Most recently, The Lexington, San Francisco’s last-standing lesbian bar, announced it would be closing based on high rent and low turnout.

So, we’re hoping to draw a little attention these establishments this year, particularly during holiday shopping and reveling season. After patronizing your local lez establishments on Dec. 6, join East Bay Express’ Managing Editor, Anna Pulley, at the WhiteHorse Bar for bevs.

Lezs and Bevs, our two favorite things!

Graffiti, stickering and other damage to our news racks costs over $50,000 per year to fix.

As an independent, locally owned small business, that money is significant to us, and could be put to better use.

We could...

...hire a full-time journalist to do investigative reporting, exposing issues that concern all of us and help keep our leaders and institutions in check.

...hire five freelance writers every week to spotlight the up-and-coming artists, musicians, activists, and innovators that give our town its unique flavor.

...print thousands more papers each week, getting our reporting into more hands so people are informed and can take action.

...hire local artists to custom paint each of our racks. And yes, we actually do this!

Thank you for your help!
