The nightclub had previously started a GoFundMe to “curtail expenses our staff will acquire during this unfortunate time.” According to an update posted to the GoFundMe on Thursday, the bar's owners were no longer able to pay rent due to the pandemic closure and faced eviction.

BT2, which operated for years at 6607 N. I-35, hosted weekly queer nightlife events like drag shows and themed dance nights.
