One month ago, I wrote in this post about Plan B, the LGBT-oriented nightclub on Williamson Street that you see in the above photo, and how wound up in a very unflattering light. To sum up: Some drag performers had a cow in December when club staff forbid them from changing in their usual dressing room. The queens called out the club on social media, with some of them severing ties with Plan B. Several other performers and patrons said “I can top that story” and called out club ownership for how they ran the club, one owner in particular for his treatment of staff and customers, and one security staffer for an incident with a black patron.
When the dust settled, Plan B was sold, with founding owner Rico Sabatini returning to take ownership of the club. It also led to some reflecting of what Plan B became under the previous ownership — that is, a club that was and still is widely popular but lost its original focus of being a safe and inviting haven for the LGBT+ community.
