MAMA to Buy G-A-Y?

Mean Fiddler, the entertainment company that owns G-A-Y and G-A-Y Late, announced that it’s considering an offer from music and entertainment investors, MAMA group, which owns myriad music venues and publications, including The Fly.

We consider the offer to be positive and are currently awaiting confirmation of that offer being confirmed before a final decision is to be taken. We anticipate the offer to be formalized in early August.

G-A-Y Club – a regular venue for the likes of Kylie Minogue, Madonna and Enrique Iglesias – may also find itself in Parliaments line of fire: politicos are considering using the Astoria hot spot for a new subway station. That would s-u-c-k.
