Total loan: $9,500


Oakland, CA, United States / Food

Sean's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped me to return Nightclub & Bar's LGBTQ Venue of the Year to serving the community.

Sean's story

My name is Sean and started this amazing journey with my partner Richard Fuentes, a son of immigrants and the first college graduate in my family. We have lived & loved in Oakland for over 12 years. We started The Port Bar to create a 7 day a week space for LGBT East Bay residents who are typically more diverse and lower income than San Francisco. Before Oakland had a LGBT Community Center, we referred to The Port Bar as Oakland's LGBT Community Center but with alcohol. We have been recognized with various awards for building community through our business. The Port Bar is downtown Oakland's LGBT 7 day a week community space.
