Interesting Quote: Ian Reisner

You know, it’s so ironic — I wanted to build kind of a community center in the gateway to Hell’s Kitchen, which in 2008–2009 was already a gay place and now it’s even gayer. Very close to Broadway. We decided there’d be so many different ways to give back to the community. We show gay artists there. For gay performers, we have let this cabaret club go on for three and a half years. And you don’t make money when you let drag queens in on Tuesday night and 30 people drink at $10 a drink and you have to pay five people to watch over the place. You don’t make money … My only point is, this has not been a profitable venture. Gays are cheap. They’re frugal; gays are frugal. Let me retract that … gays are entitled … Do you know how challenging it is to make a penny off a gay person? I’m gay, I don’t pay cover. I’m gay, where’s my comp drink? No, I’m being serious! The Out NYC has not shown a profit yet …”

Man, he just keeps stepping in it.


That man is a total douche bag. He made an appearance on "Million dollars listing New York" and he screwed Luis in so many ways. Sexual harrassment, abusive attitude, etc... The dead guy in his bathtub and the latest story about the GOP... That man will get no sympathy from me and he needs to disappear, altogether.... What a despicable creature!!!! He's a disgrace.....
