Wendy Williams Raising Money for Beloved LGBT Bar in Tennessee

COOKEVILLE, TN – Adult industry legend Wendy Williams raising money for the livelihood of Cookeville’s LGBT historic landmark, Temptation Bar.

“One of the great things about my long career in the industry was having the savings to open my LGBT bar three years ago,” says Williams. “It’s scary not knowing if I’ll be able to re-open because there’s no income coming in. My fans have been awesome supporting my camming and fan platforms, but that’s only going towards my personal household, not my small business.  I hate to ask for help but sometimes you have to swallow your Pride and speak up.” 

Williams is grateful for the support she has received from the community. “I want to take a moment to thank Steven Grooby as well,” Williams added. “He donated first, before I even set up the GoFundMe. He continues to support independent trans women, even outside of porn, and I’m very thankful for his generosity.” 

At the beginning of March, Cookeville was hit by a tornado that narrowly missed Temptation Bar by 20 ft. The building had minimal damage, but the surrounding community was hit hard. Williams was able to re-open on March 13th for one weekend before the COVID-19 pandemic made it a health hazard to remain open to the community. Storm damages and loss of revenue streams have depleted Williams savings, who owns and operates the Temptation Bar. 

“Certain operational expenses must be maintained to preserve a positive gathering place for our community,” explains Williams. “ We are all having to tighten our belts during this trying time as futures are frightening and uncertain. However anything you could do to help us will be greatly appreciated.”

Donations are being accepted directly through the GoFundMe page here: https://www.gofundme.com/f/temptation-bar
