FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
MAY 2, 2024
SUBJ: NON VIRTUAL ENVIRONMENT OF THE AFRI BAR RESORT
On October 7, 2008, the National Institutes of Health published "Are gay communities dying or just in transition?”
Results from an international consultation, examining structural change in gay communities stated "In all cities, the virtual gay community was identified as now larger than the offline physical community. Most cities identified that while the gay population in their cities appeared stable or growing, the gay community appeared in decline. Measures included greater integration of heterosexuals into historically gay-identified neighborhoods and movement of gay persons into suburbs, decreased number of gay bars and clubs, less attendance at gay events, less volunteerism in gay or aids organizations, and overall identification and visibility as a gay community."
A brick & mortar property is described as a physical presence of an organization or business in a building or other structure, and We can confirm that the properties owned and managed by Village Resorts Hospitality Group, LLC, are not set to operate as virtual properties across the web as Village Resorts Hospitality Group, LLC, is a brick and mortar Company who designs, develops and manages brick and mortar hospitality properties that emphasize our high quality standards resulting in properties that are stylish, upbeat, and a mix old traditional and modern.
As previously stated The Afri Bar were first developed with an intended purpose as stigma and discrimination may lead to negative attitudes toward gay, bisexual, and other men who maintain relationships with other men and have sex with men and these attitudes can lead to rejection by friends and family, discriminatory acts and violence, and laws and policies with negative consequences, and while homophobia, stigma, and discrimination can be especially hard for black men who are gay and bisexual who maintain relationships with men and have sex with men, these negative attitudes can increase their chances of experiencing violence which can include behaviors such as bullying, teasing, harassment, physical assault, and suicide-related behaviors and the Afri Bar has carefully curated an environment that favors social recreation, stimulation, and social activity as we champion an environment free of fear and oppression.
Therefore, the Afri Bar, the Afri Resort, its buildings, structures, and infrastructure is a proposed and planned brick-and-mortar property which is described as a physical presence of an organization or business in a building or other structure and we can confirm that the properties owned and managed by The Afri Bar, LLC, to include the Afri Bar and Afri Resort were never imagined, idealized, planned, nor set to operate as virtual properties across the web as The Afri Bar, LLC, is a brick and mortar Company and at no time do we intend, nor do we consider, we will ever operate the Afri Bar, the Afri Resort, or any of its buildings, structures, or infrastructure as a pop up, virtual, online, or augmented reality gay resort or gay destination.
Thank you for your interest in the Afri Bar.
