A woman is suing the leaders of a north Mississippi town, accusing them of conspiring to prevent her from opening a gay bar by denying an application for a business license. Pat Newton filed the federal lawsuit Tuesday against the mayor and six aldermen of Shannon, a town of about 1, in Lee County, where Newton has been trying to open a cafe and bar called O'Hara's to cater to the gay community. The year-old Newton, who is a lesbian, is seeking monetary damages and an order to allow her to open the business, as well as attorneys' fees and court costs.
JacksonUnited States. On Highway 43 between the Reservoir and the Natchez Trace, approx. Gay Jackson.
When a new gay bar opened in Jackson last month, local resident Kenneth Griffes-Mohney was surprised, to say the least. Jackson has a reputation for being a socially conservative town, so Griffes-Mohney and his partner, James Warner, were excited but skeptical about the opening of a gathering place for the gay community. For the most part, the feedback has been positive, she said.
Some forums can only be seen by registered members. I moved to Music City in July of last year with Comcast. I had lived there briefly in my younger and wilder days and didn't really care where I lived so long as I could get to The Jungle and The Chute. Even then though I seemed to have landed in an area somewhere near Vandy where there seemed to be a lot of gay people.
I think its more the Great upstairs room for events. The rest of the bar gets a bit to smokey for me.

It could go either way. Anyway, Rampage took to his blog he has a blog? I am a black man from Memphis Tennessee who grew up in the south where I faced discrimination my whole life. I know very well how it feels for someone to judge you for something you have no control over so having gone through that I know how it feels.
By Andrew Collins. The Tennessee gateway to Great Smoky Mountains National Park and Dolly Parton's unabashedly kitschy Dollywood theme park in Pigeon Forge, and a picturesque city in its own right, with an attractive setting on the Tennessee River, Knoxville populationis also a vibrant university city home to the main campus of the University of Tennessee with a strong arts scene and an increasingly robust farm-to-table restaurant and cafe selection. Downtown and the adjacent, historic Old City neighborhoods abound with hip places to eat and drink, and here in Tennessee's third-largest city after Nashville and Memphisgay and lesbian travelers will discover a decent-size LGBT community and plenty of gay-popular hangouts, from actual gay bars to mixed bars, eateries, and cafes. Knoxville isn't nearly as liberal or LGBT-embracing as the North Carolina gateway to the Smoky's, Ashevillebut it does possess some of that city's vibe.
