Historic Historic Boystown

New, 14 comments

Chicago, home to gayborhood Boystown, is scoffing at a West Hollywood businessman's proposal to designate a stretch of Santa Monica as "Historic Boystown." Here's one Boystown bar owner: "Really? I think that’s pretty weak and quite cheesy on their part...I’m very happy for them, and certainly encourage the intentions of designating this area to honor LGBT people, but naming it ‘Boystown’ or ‘Historic Boystown’ just seems so copycat. I read the article that it’s been called that for years, but rise up and get creative, don’t just rip off of Boystown Chicago." [Pictured: OG Boystown, via Curbed Chicago] [RedEye]
