Escuelita's Former Owner Strangled In NYC Comments (0)

Savyon Zabar aka Big Ben, the former owner of the longtime gay NYC club Escuelita — which catered to Latin lovers — was found strangled and beaten to death in his Upper West Side apartment Wednesday.

The 54-year-old allegedly took a massage from a regular masseur of his, who then reportedly left the apartment saying that Ben had tried to have sex with him. This declaration struck Ben's roommate as odd, so he checked on Ben and found his body.

The masseur is at large.

Police noted his death was not immediately characterized as murder because his large size (400 lbs.) made it hard to see he had been strangled.

The NYP did its typically sensitive treatment on the story:

Hard To Resist: New Feminist/Queer/Minority Performance Series In NYC vs. Trump Comments (0)

This sounds like a great idea for combatting the wave of anti-LGBTQ (for starters) policies and attitudes about to be unleashed by the — gulp — Trump Administration:

SANCTUARY, a home for feminist/queer/minority voices will take up residence at HERE beginning on Inauguration Day, Jan 20th as part of the Sublet Series. SANCTUARY is a pop-up venue for artists and activists to come together as a community and respond to current events, in particular the fears and anxieties felt in anticipation of the coming administration.

SANCTUARY opens on January 20th with an Inaugural Ball and continues with a full month of work by more than 50 different artists from a wide range of backgrounds. The schedule includes new theatre works; panel discussions with major arts leaders; and a variety of dance, concert, and other non-traditional works.

SANCTUARY will transform the mainstage at HERE into an immersive venue that draws on the history of activist/counter culture spaces. Audiences and artists alike will commiserate, process, grieve, organize, learn, and ultimately unite in celebration of the values we refuse to let America turn its back on.

Among the most interesting offerings:
