Homo Oh, Please.

The SGN engages in a little revisionist insta-history:
The LGBT Community Center [has] been moved out of its five-year residence on Pike Street by the forces of Capitol Hill gentrification.
Uh, no. The LGBT Community Center went tits up due to financial mismanagement, poor decision making, a lack of critical oversight from what passes for the gay press around here (and no, ‘mo, we’re not the gay press), and a divisive, Ahab-esque obsession with keeping the pride parade on Capitol Hill. The fuckwits, tools, and fools running the LGBT Center seemed to think that they worked for George Bacon and Seattle’s gay bars, not Seattle’s gay community, and consequently it is no more. The small handful of people that relied on the center for “service, resources, and celebrations” will miss the place. But most queer folks aren’t going to notice a difference.
