Will The King’s Cross stay on the map?

Another example of social media playing an important role in current affairs is the recent Facebook campaign to save Cardiff’s oldest surviving gay bar. Over 1200 people have joined the Facebook group to save the The King’s Cross from being turned into a gastropub.

Rugby star Gareth Thomas has also backed the protest, describing the pub as a part of Cardiff’s history. The pub, which was originally built in 1872 and used as a hotel, was known as a safe haven for gay men long before the legalisation of homosexuality.

A staple feature of Cardiff’s gay venues, the pub is an important part of Cardiff’s gay community. Campaigners will be heading to London’s Savoy Hotel tomorrow, 26th of October, to demonstrate with members of London’s gay community.
