This is a great article, however the following needs to be updated:

"Currently, Jacksonville’s oldest gay venue is Metro Entertainment Complex, formerly Club Metro, on Willow Branch Avenue in Riverside. Open since 1993, the sprawling 17,000-square-foot complex features several rooms with a variety of themes, and is one of the largest nightclubs in the city."
