Over the weekend thousands of gay men launched a savvy online campaign using the the hashtag of the white supremacist group “Proud Boys”, depicting proud gay men of all ages in a variety of poses. The online activity resulted in making the hashtag #proudboys a top trend on sites like Twitter.
For those unfamiliar with Proud Boys (as I was prior to last week), the group formed during the last Presidential campaign in 2016. The group is considered a far-right, neo-fascist and male-only organization and are labelled as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center. The group actively promotes and engages in political violence in the US and Canada. While the group officially rejects racism, their composition and the words of their members suggest otherwise.
Because of the recent attention and what this violent group propogates, some social media channels have reportedly been blocking this hash tag and mention of the group but as of today, #proudboys was still trending on Twitter so if you have a moment, share with the world how proud you are.

The impact the pandemic is having on the few remaining gay bars in Boston is concerning to say the least so I was happy to read in the blog, Boston Restaurant Talk that The Alley in Downtown Crossing is reinventing itself and making better use of their kitchen to serve food so it can open for business.
Starting yesterday, Wednesday, the Alley Bar has been serving appetizers, burgers, and pizza. According to the blog post, the owners of the popular bear bar were looking to leverage their kitchen to serve food prior to the pandemic but the closures of all bars mandated by the state expedited that process. By serving food and transforming into a restaurant, The Alley can open rather than wait for Phase 4, which might not happen for awhile because it is dependent on the discovery of a vaccine and/or therapeutic. You can find out more on The Alley’s Facebook page.
The Alley Bar first opened in 2003. Help support this LGBTQ establishment and stop by for a burger and a beer with your friends.
