Stoli Heroes of Diversity: The Inspiring Owner of The Abbey, David Cooley

In partnership with Stoli, OUT is proud to spotlight LGBTQ communities' Heroes of Diversity — icons who champion the spirit of progress. David Cooley has done exactly that in his 26 years as owner of The Abbey Food & Bar, one of the most immediately recognizable names in LGBTQ nightlife. In his interview with Stoli National LGBT Ambassador Patrik Gallineaux, Cooley shares his thoughts on what's kept both his business and the community going through the years.
