Share Your Memory of the Boom

Would you take a minute to help in a very important story (see below) that will be running in the Orange County Register next Sunday, September 2nd? The reporters have asked me to ask you to jot down a couple of sentences on what the Boom Boom Room has meant to you. Either a fond memory, or how it may have helped you in coming out or helped you in any way -- see below. And if you have any pictures, send them along, too.

You can send them directly (please keep them g-rated) to the reporters:

After all the outpouring of support and goodwill from the local gay (and straight) community, I find it an incredible slap in the face for the Boom to have tripled their cover charge ($15)for the final weekend.
Yes, they are a for-profit business, but THIS is the way they thank their patrons for years of support? What a tacky way to go out.
