Reopening Gay Bathhouses Will Aid 'Economic And Cultural Recovery,' San Francisco Supervisor Says

San Francisco District 8 Supervisor Rafael Mandelman says gay bathhouses need to be reopened ASAP so they can aid the city's "economic and cultural recovery" and his fellow board of supervisors have already unanimously approved an ordinance to help make it happen.

From SF Weekly, "Restrictions Relaxed For Gay Bathhouses, Sex Venues":
Gay bathhouses could have an easier time returning to San Francisco, after the board of supervisors approved an ordinance that would ease restrictions for adult sex venues on July 21 with a unaminous vote.

This will amend the Heath Code, requiring the Director of Health to "adopt minimum health and safety standards" for commercial adult sex venues. It will also remove decades-old policies that required these businesses to monitor sexual activities and prohibited private rooms and locked doors.

These regulations were put in place in 1984, when the AIDS crisis was devastating gay communities in San Francisco. They specifically targeted sex clubs and gay bathhouses, and while sex clubs eventually reopened in the city after shuttering their doors, gay bathhouses never did, according to the Bay Area Reporter.

That could change after the COVID-19 pandemic is over (this new ruling will not affect the city's reopening timeline). The ordinance, led by Supervisor Rafael Mandelman, will help "decriminalize sexuality" according to a press release by the San Francisco AIDS Foundation.

[...] "What this ordinance will do is allow for adult sex venues to be apart of our economic and cultural recovery when it is safe to do so," Mandelman said in a July 9 meeting. "During the '70s and early '80s, bathhouses were a focal point of gay social life in San Francisco, and were important community meeting places for friends to gather to share stories, dance to the latest disco hits, or watch a live show."
Of course, your Churches need to stay closed!

Remember, Fauci said in April in the middle of the pandemic it's fine if people want to use Grindr for gay hookups:
