There’s a battle brewing in London, where developers are attempting to turn historic gay-owned hotel, The Philbeach Hotel, into a bunch of straight-washed flats. Now a coalition of queers are rallying to save their homo habitation. They’ve even composed a form letter:
The hotel has been open for over 20 years, and it is the only gay hotel in London which is privately owned by gays and run by gays.
It was recently announced that the hotel has been sold to an unknown developer to turn into flats.
The current staff there have been given 3 weeks to find new employment and new housing.
The hotel closes on 31st January 2008.
Apparently the Princess restaurant will also be destroyed, which would be a real tragedy.
If you’re inclined to save this gay edifice, join the Save the Philbeach campaign. It’s more fashionable than Ron Paul and twice as fun as Edwards.
