Harlem is a very diverse community that is inclusive of all people. Lido Harlem, located on the southeast corner of 117th Street and Frederick Douglass Blvd., enjoys and succeeds at serving up fine dishes to all walks of life. They recognize-and I agree with them-there appears to be a growing presence of the gay community in South Harlem. To cater to this particular demographic, they are hosting their first Harlem LGBT Community Mixer on November 12 from 9 pm to 11 pm with an extended happy hour that will feature drink specials!
I raise my glass to Lido Harlem for organizing this mixer. We all know they are not the first to cater to the gay community in Harlem. Billies Black, Natives Restaurant and more have always catered and welcomed the LGBT Community of Harlem long before most of us moved here. However, for Lido Harlem to do this, I say why not and go for it!

Melba’s Restaurant, located on the southwest corner of Frederick Douglass Blvd and 114th, wasted no time today in showing her pride outside her establishment. Her staff was up bright and early this morning (June 24)hanging the rainbow flag out front, which represents gay pride! Way to go Melba’s and Happy Gay Pride Day to all.
