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!

THE TRUTH...

is the first thing despots go after. An unwavering commitment to it is probably what draws you to Mother Jones' journalism. And as we're seeing in the US and the world around, authoritarians seek to poison the discourse and the way we relate to each other because they can't stand people coming together around a shared sense of the truth—it's a huge threat to them.

Which is also a pretty great way to describe Mother Jones' mission: People coming together around the truth to hold power accountable.

And right now, we need to raise about $400,000 from our online readers over the next two months to hit our annual goal and make good on that mission. Read more about the information war we find ourselves in and how people-powered, independent reporting can and must rise to the challenge—and please support our team's truth-telling journalism with a donation if you can right now.
