RISE nightclub in Boston closes in April

RiseEarlier this month RISE – Boston’s only after hours dance club – announced they would close at the end of April.  While I’ve not been in a long time, I’m sorry to see Boston’s only after hours club close.

When RISE initially opened in 1998, I remember going there and having fun.  It proved to be a great alternative to Chinatown for “cold tea”. I hope another club will open for Boston’s 20-somethings, but with Boston’s anemic nightlife and the threat of late night MBTA service ending, it seems unlikely.  Should you like to venture to RISE for one last hurrah, check out their Facebook page for details. They have lined up a series of “Final Parties”.

Indiana passes anti-LGBT legislation

discriminationIndiana’s State House earlier today approved the nation’s most anti-LGBT legislation.  According to the IndyStar, similar legislation was passed by the State Senate and Indiana’s Governor has said he intends to sign this into law – all under the guise of protecting religious freedom.  The legislation is modeled on a 22-year old federal law known as the Religious Freedom and Restoration Act. You may recall this act because it was what the US Supreme Court cited in allowing Hobby Lobby to opt out of the Affordable Care Act requirement that they cover contraceptives.

This sort of thing really ticks me off because I get so frustrated having these discussions over and over again. Legally barring a group from a business has haunting parallels to the civil rights struggles from the 1950s and 1960s not to mention more recent legislation organizations like GLAD, HRC and others have overturned in the courts for our community.

Shame on you Indiana – and shame on Indianans.  You may not agree with your state government but this is your home and your home makes me sick.
