Keep Oakland Queer: Allow Club 21/BnB to Stay

0 have signed. Let’s get to 1,000!


After nearly four decades of being Oakland and the East Bay’s premier LGBTQ nightclub, Club 21 and Club BnB (aka Bench and Bar) will be closing their doors permanently on January 12th. Club ownership has been informed that the building, which houses one of only 3 LGBTQ bars in Oakland, was sold and the new owner is converting the space into shared tech offices. This is yet another example of a local business falling victim to the rising costs of gentrification. Like so many in the LGBTQ community Club 21 and Club BnB will be displaced. 

The loss of the ONLY POC focused and Queer nightclubs in Oakland will leave a gaping hole in both night life and the LGBTQ community.
