Central Station, Moscow’s Largest Gay Nightclub, to Reopen in New Location


Central Station, Moscow's largest gay nightclub which was closed after a string of attacks forced owners to shut it down, is reopening, according to The Calvert Journal:

 The club has moved to the south of the city, near Avtozavodskaya metro station. The decision to close the club, formerly located near Komsomolskaya metro station close to the city centre, came just months after the club’s co-owner Andrei Lishchinsky stepped down as Central Station’s CEO, frustrated that none of the 30 complaints lodged with the Moscow City Police about homophobic attacks on the club had been investigated. The club’s return was announced on its website, accompanied by a statement which read: “The concept of the previous Central Station is not lost and is even more clearly embodied in the new project. The goal is to give everyone what they want.”

    Really? Is it worse than your trailer park?

    I take that back. There are many decent folks (and tax paying folks) who were raised in trailer parks. The same as I was raised in North Philly (but I AINT decent…and never wanted to be).

    You can’t look down on people based on from they came. But you can judge them for what they say as adults.

    So, I’ll change my comment, “Is a Russian hell hole any worse than your living room?”
