LGBT History – WATCH: NYC’s Florent: Queen Of The Meat Market – Video


The documentary Florent: Queen Of The Meat Market, directed by David Sigal follows the rise and fall of openly gay and openly HIV+ Florent Morellet’s namesake Meatpacking District restaurant which was long the post-clubbing meeting place for a spectacular mix of NYC’s nightlife in an area that was once populated in NYC’s meatpacking district which at night was filled with leather bars, sex clubs, and disco’s before it became a “trendy” neighborhood

Florent’s restaurant was forced out of business last year due the neighborhood’s rampant gentrification

Another piece of NYC’s LGBT History lost forever.
