LGBTQ bar 'H.G. Roosters' in West Palm Beach has historic designation

LGBTQ bar H.G. Roosters in West Palm Beach is known as the oldest gay bar in the state of Florida.

The local LGBTQ community explained during a Facebook Live why the city of West Palm Beach’s historical designation for H.G. Roosters is important, and what’s next for rebuilding plans after a devastating fire.
