SoMa’s historic Stud bar survived the AIDS crisis and uncertainty due to rent spikes in the past, but the losses from Coronavirus have been too much for the LGBT-friendly space. The Stud will be closing after 55 years with a drag funeral on May 31 to send it off into the history book. The owners do intend on reopening elsewhere.
