  1. you should be more carefull about your facts- or lack therof!! None of the staff were charged with anything at mr.BLACK….in fact the whole thing was a waste of everones time and money and you guys should be embarrased for sensationalizing it.

    I’d just be curious to know the percentage of gay bars/clubs compared to the percentage of straight establishments that get busted/raided both historically and recently. Annoying. There are nearly no gay dance venues in NYC anymore. Do we call this ‘progress’ in the ‘new gay friendly society’? hmmm.

    re: glynnmcwilliams – If “loads of gay bars” is a response to my comment, you missed my point. I grew up, and still live in Manhattan. I didn’t say there was a lack of gay bars (which there are plenty of) – I said “nearly no gay DANCE venues” – which has nothing to do with the number of gay bars.

  5. mr black is one of the few gay venues in NYC where my girlfriends and I have felt the most welcome by the boys and the friendly staff. I really hope they reopen. Ive never seen anything illegal going on there. I think the police just needed a fix of the television DRAMA they had hoped their jobs would be when they recruited. Free Black! xx
