Renegades, San Jose's neighborhood LGBTQ+ bar, our home away from homes, host to some of your favorite monthly events like FURST FRIDAYS, WOOWOO'S CIRQ-US, and TROUSERS DOWN, is in desperate need of our help!

As we're all aware, the world has fallen helpless to COVID-19 and shelter in place self-isolations. Renegades was forced to close its doors, losing all business until further notice, with no end date in sight.

With no money coming in, but continued rent and other expenses accumulating, we might not have a bar to come back to in the end. Our goal is to keep Renegades going for the next two months, so when this is all over, we still have our favorite watering hole to return to. Lord knows, we're all gonna need a drink!
