 Queer History
Much of the history of gay bars in the United States can be characterized as an ongoing struggle among queer patrons, bar owners, local police, and state agencies over just who controlled them.
Since they were effectively illegal (or semi-legal) establishments, gay bar owners were subject to the same kind of extortion schemes that targeted prostitutes and gambling establishments.
Still, neighborhood bars, bars in small cities and towns, and taverns catering to specific sub-cultures remain important social arenas, and we shouldn't forget that they were the springboard from which the modern LGBT movement was launched.

Although the ANC 2C protest does not mention that Be Bar would be operating as a gay establishment, ANC 2C member Alexander Padro, who is gay and who voted against the protest, said he believes the opposition is based at least in part on the assumption that the bar would cater to a gay clientele.

But he said he was especially upset that a representative of the bar allegedly told him the establishment would ban neighborhood residents from entering its premises and preferred to have Maryland and Virginia residents patronize the bar.
