Hello everyone, 

On March 5th 2021, Governor Jim Justice, of West Virginia, lifted restrictions for local establishments to be at full capacity. On that day, the Stonewall Night Club had a Grand Reopening to celebrate being closed for a year due to COVID-19. Saturday March the 6th, the WV ABCA made a visit to the bar and ordered them to close for a violation. Other local establishments are violating the orders of the Governor, and remain open. I have started this petition to raise awareness to the Governor’s office and the ABCA to lift the restrictions and reopen the Stonewall. For many in our community, this bar is a place for them to safely gather and socialize with other members in the LGBTQ+ Community. 
 The owners of the bar were trying to enforce the social distancing requirements and operate in a safe manner to keep their patrons safe. How is it possible for the other local establishments to operate with their patrons not wearing masks, standing around other individuals not wearing masks, and clearly violating the Governor’s and remain open? Are we being targeted because it is a gay nightclub? This is an unfair practice if that is the case. Please sign and share this petition so we can have the bar open again and support local business owners, and have a place to gather safely. The employees of this location are out of a job again as well due to this unfortunate situation.
