Stonewall Warehouse, the only LGBTQ bar and club in San Marcos, closed abruptly Jan. 1 with no warning to staff.

Located in downtown at 141 E. Hopkins St., San Marcos, Stonewall Warehouse opened in 2014 and served as a sanctuary for many.

"On Sunday, New Years Day, my staff and I were told the business was sold and we were all being let go. No notice and no warning were given. We are devastated at the closure of Stonewall but it has left my entire staff with no income right at the beginning of the month when bills and rent are due," Stonewall Manager Lena Jacobs wrote in a post.

A Gofundme has been created for the employees of Stonewall and has surpassed its $5,000 goal.

Jacobs told Community Impact that the owner of Stonewall Warehouse no longer wanted the business and sold it.
