Orlando Nights shutters its doors
One day it was open and the next day it closed-leaving booked acts with nowhere to go. Orlando Nights Bar and Lounge at 1300 Mills Ave. has shuttered its doors, apparently for good. Angry booking agents posted on its Facebook page in search of new venues, and they didn’t hold back their tempers. Lynn McClintock Gabel, whose family has owned the building for 35 years, said Orlando Nights was simply a tenant. Owners of the club “bought” the business last November from the previous owners “Paradise” for $50,000, she said. No word yet on what might replace the club.

Orlando bids adieu to Kristopher Reynolds
Local model, celebrity and impressive photographer Kristopher Reynolds is packing up and moving back home to San Diego, and his well-attended farewell party was held on Wednesday, July 17, at Pulse Orlando. Reynolds announced his plans to move after sharing news about his separation from his long-time partner. He said he wishes his ex nothing but the best but feels he must move West and re-establish his photography business there. He also has aspirations of working regularly in Las Vegas. In his regular, good-natured way, Reynolds invited friends and foes alike to say goodbye to him. “If you like me, come have a drink and say goodbye,” he posted on Facebook. “If you don’t, come have a drink and tell me how you really feel. Either way I’m leaving. San Diego or bust!”

Bayli on the small screen
Openly bisexual teenager and LGBT activist Bayli Silberstein has made her small screen debut. Bayli made headlines during her fight for a Gay Straight Alliance (GSA) at Carver Middle School in Leesburg. (A battle that is still ongoing, see full story page 8). She was featured as one of the “Everyday Heroes” as shown in the new “Nick News” special that aired July 15 on Nickelodeon. The show was hosted by award-winning journalist and author Linda Ellerbee. Congrats to Bayli, a truly inspirational 15 year old.
