Atlantic City’s first gay night club opens suddenly

    Suddenly Thursday night there was a gay night club in Atlantic City. The first gay club in the resort town opened without notice last night.

    Though the city has hosted many gay-themed events in the past, the club is the first of its kind and a way to attract new tourists.

    Resorts Casino’s “Prohibition” is a precursor to the hotel’s “Believe – Divas in a Man’s World” show, the Associated Press reports.

    Atlantic City also hosts the annual Miss America drag queen spoof, gay bingo and other gay-theme weekend events.
