One of London's, and the world's, most legendary night clubs has been shut down, and the after effects are rippling across the globe.

fabric (spelled with a lowercase 'f') has been a staple in the electronic scene for nearly two decades, and has been one of the most highly regarded nightclubs. A recent string of drug related deaths has catapulted the club into the forefront of local politics, and Islington Borough Council decided to revoke fabric's license and permanently shut the establishment on September 6.

Despite statements in support of keeping the nightclub open from both London's Mayor Sadiq Kahn and MP Emily Thornbury, the council ruled against their wishes, sending the message that no nightclub in the UK is safe.

Other cities and countries have responded to show their support of nightclubs' place in their culture. Berghain in Berlin has been award the tax status of a High Culture venue, and Vienna has officially recognized all dance clubs as cultural spaces.

A campaign to fight the governemnt and reopen fabric has launched, and has garnered quite a bit of support so far. Click here for more information on how you can get involved.

3 Reasons Why Step Dads Are Super Dads

I often hear a lot of people complaining about their step-parents and wondering why they think that they have any authority over them. Although I know that everyone has different situations, I will be the first to admit that I am beyond blessed to have a step dad. Yep, I said it. My life wouldn't be the same that it is not without him in it. Let me tell you why I think step dads are the greatest things since sliced bread.

1. They will do anything for you, literally.

My stepdad has done any and every thing for me. From when I was little until now. He was and still is my go-to. If I was hungry, he would get me food. If something was broken, he would fix it. If I wanted something, he would normally always find a way to get it. He didn't spoil me (just sometimes), but he would make sure that I was always taken care of.

2. Life lessons.

Yup, the tough one. My stepdad has taught me things that I would have never figured out on my own. He has stood beside me through every mistake. He has been there to pick me up when I am down. My stepdad is like the book of knowledge: crazy hormonal teenage edition. Boy problems? He would probably make me feel better. He just always seemed to know what to say. I think that the most important lesson that I have learned from my stepdad is: to never give up. My stepdad has been through three cycles of leukemia. He is now in remission, yay!! But, I never heard him complain. I never heard him worry and I never saw him feeling sorry for himself. Through you, I found strength.

3. He loved me as his own.

The big one, the one that may seem impossible to some step parents. My stepdad is not actually my stepdad, but rather my dad. I will never have enough words to explain how grateful I am for this man, which is why I am attempting to write this right now. It takes a special kind of human to love another as if they are their own. There had never been times where I didn't think that my dad wouldn't be there for me. It was like I always knew he would be. He introduces me as his daughter, and he is my dad. I wouldn't have it any other way. You were able to show me what family is.

So, dad... thanks. Thanks for being you. Thanks for being awesome. Thanks for being strong. Thanks for loving me. Thanks for loving my mom. Thanks for giving me a wonderful little sister. Thanks for being someone that I can count on. Thanks for being my dad.

I love you!
