Historic LGBT club turned market for Pride in Peru

Jun 28, 2020 12:04 IST

As the coronavirus pandemic drove Global Pride events on Saturday to the internet, one LGBT club in the Peruvian capital of Lima reopened with a twist. Instead of welcoming partygoers, it's trying to attract shoppers after repurposing the space as a grocery store. The Valetodo Downtown club has already been closed for three months and, like many clubs and bars, must follow government guidelines and remain closed to revellers until the end of July. Following in the footsteps of many restaurants, Valetodo Downtown decided to morph into a grocery store for survival.
