Greg Zehnacker was the driving force behind the Green Lantern when we opened our doors in 2001.  Greg was a fixture in Washington DC's LGBT community for more than 30 years and worked at several gay establishments before opening Green Lantern in 2001, including Lost and Found, Pier 9, Rascals, and Peppers. He was a supporter of DC's many gay clubs and organizations, and routinely provided space at Green Lantern for charity events and meetings, including among others, The DC Center's HIV/AIDS Prevention Working Group, the Centaurs MC, and the Washington Scandals Rugby Club.
