Via NewNowNext: Ian Reisner, who with his ex-partner and current business parter Mati Weiderpass hosted that indefensible Ted Cruz glad-handing session that hopefully forever marred their credibility, has announced their NYC gay hotel The Out is going back into the closet.
With his usual tone-deafness, Reisner last year declared:
This has not been a profitable venture. Gays are cheap. They’re frugal; gays are frugal. Let me retract that… gays are entitled. Do you know how challenging it is to make a penny off a gay person? ’I’m gay, I don’t pay cover. I’m gay, where’s my comp drink?'”
The hotel's lease has been bought by Merchants Hospitality and will change in every conceivable way. Good. It's not worth having a so-called gay hotel if it's enriching in any way two gay Republican quislings.
