If you haven't already heard the sad news, Roverta "Bo" Boen passed away this past Tuesday, March 9th, from health complications. If you don't know who Bo was, she was the owner of one of the first (and oldest) gay bars in the state of Florida, Bo's Coral Reef, in Jacksonville Beach and she was active in the GLBT community. If you want to attend her services or funeral, here's the information.
