Good news, conservatives! If the Republican National Convention gets a little too stressful, you can always unwind—gratis—in “Tampa Bay’s only gay owned and gay operated, private club, resort & bathhouse.” From now until August 31, the Ybor Resort and Spa, located in the heart of Tampa’s sultry Ybor City party district, is offering a super promotion: “ALL RNC DELEGATES GET IN FREE!” Tea party, anyone?

“All guys 18 & up” are welcome to sample Ybor’s recently opened steam room, not to mention the spa’s brand-spanking new dark room, dubbed “A Shot In The Dark.” Just bear in mind the house rules: It’s a private men’s health club; no drugs, pets, or prostitution; and always wear your towel!

$500,000 MATCHING GIFT

In 2014, before Donald Trump announced his run for president, we knew we had to do something different to address the fundamental challenge facing journalism: how hard-hitting reporting that can hold the powerful accountable can survive as the bottom falls out of the news business.

Being a nonprofit, we started planning The Moment for Mother Jones: A special campaign to raise $25 million for key investments to make Mother Jones the strongest watchdog it can be. Five years later, readers have stepped up and contributed an astonishing $23 million in gifts and future pledges. This is an incredible statement from the Mother Jones community in the face of the huge threats—both economic and political—against the free press.

Read more about The Moment and see what we've been able to accomplish thanks to readers' incredible generosity so far, and please join them today. Your gift will be matched dollar for dollar, up to $500,000 total, during this critical moment for journalism.
