Kiss goodbye to Gaydar Radio and Soho's Profile bar and club.
Gaydar has just announced the closure, with immediate effect, of Profile Bar and Club. They have thanked their staff and patrons but didn't mention their near £3m of debt. It's a damned expensive business getting a venue these days. It seems the building's refurb seemed like a good time to bow out and hand the lease back to the landlord. Shame.
It's been a grim couple of weeks for Gaydar. They've also just abandoned their Gaydar Radio project. They've handed the license to Gaydio, a volunteer run Manchester based station. Links to Gaydar Radio already go to Gaydio.
Why?! Digital radio and owning clubs is a pricey business and they might want to focus on Grindr eating up the cash they could spend on fun stuff. Sad days.
