Gay newspaper to hold open house at new Allentown home

An open house for a gay newspaper that has found a home in Allentown will take place today.

In The Loop has been in print for almost two years, and the growth of the monthly newsletter prompted Executive Editor Michael Rizzo to buy a headquarters for his venture several weeks ago at 224 Allen St.

The space houses the office of what has become known as The Loop in Buffalo’s lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community, as well as the company that publishes it – MyBuffaloPride, which Rizzo, a former Buffalo News freelance writer, launched three years ago as an online retail store.

The open house is by invitation only from 5 to 7:30 p.m. but opens to the public after that until 10. Guests will enjoy interactive displays while they view the inaugural art opening – “Synesthesia, Photographs by Marcus Wise.”
