Texas Community Left 'Devastated' After Only LGBTQ+ Bar's Abrupt Close

A central Texas LGBTQ+ bar's owner abruptly fired all employees on New Year's Day and shuttered the business, leaving a community devastated and without a safe space for LGBTQ+ people.Staff and management of the Stonewall Warehouse in San Marcos, a college town between San Antonio and Austin, were told by owner Jamie Frailicks on Sunday that they no longer had a place to work, former manager Lena Jacobs tells The Advocate.After arriving 30 minutes early to meet the owner without a care in the world, she says the two exchanged initial pleasantries and light-hearted banter before heading upstairs when Frailicks's demeanor changed."He told me that this was about to be a hard meeting and that he was shutting the bar down," Jacobs, who had been managing the Stonewall Warehouse for five years, says. "It just blindsided me out of nowhere."She continues, "I sat there, and he talked to me for ten minutes.
