    I had no idea it was a gay bar mind.

    I've led a pretty sheltered life. my friends took me there for a joke and I kept getting chatted up by really butch lesbians lol, it was ages before I actually twigged where I was!

    Going Out Without My Husband...

    When my husband was deployed, just after we were married, I had a very gay coworker.  He took me to a gay bar twice to watch the drag show, and it was a blast.  The atmosphere was so much fun, and I was completely comfortable.  Wish I knew of a place to go here, and had some...

    Me Too

    I went to one in Key West with a gay friend and a girl I know. It was definitely interesting and very colorful. We stayed for an hour and a half and had a good time.

    Fun Places!

    In Paris there are some great gay bars. The guys don't hit on you for sex, even if you're not wearing anything, but they might ask where you bought something! There are good bars and clubs in Narbonne, but you gotta know which is best for what you're looking for. The clubs in...

    I have been wanting to go to a gay bar

    for ages. So last night I dragged my straight best friend with me as my wingman. It turns out that the gay bar we went to was mostly guys, but that was alright since everyone was super friendly. I never hanged out with so many gay guys in my life before! Everyone was really nice...

    A Good Encounter At A Gay Bar

    After my close friend in the Army admitted to me (before Don't Ask Don't Tell was repealed) that he was gay, I started going to places and meeting new people that I normally wouldn't have. The first time that I went to a gay bar with him was to a place called OCH, and it even...

    Well Not Quite

    Never been to a gay bar, but I was once at a regular bar and someone got gay on me. I was a casino runner at the time, and a regular customer of mine came up to me and asked me if I wanted to go home with him and "suck his ****". I didn't take him up on that sparkling...

    First Time

    Went with a friend to a private party at a bar that we didn't know was a gay bar.  All of the bartenders were women dressed as men, and all of the waitresses were men dressed as women.  Our waitress was like Mrs. Doubtfire.  I wasn't uncomfortable at all, but that...

    Yup With My Friend

    Nothing crazy happened. A lot of Britney Spears and Lady Gaga music. I don't find their music that great. I danced with my female friend some and had a fun evening. I realize this is not an exciting story but it's 100% true haha.

    If you have gay friends it's just something you do. I'm not  so callow as to get all insecure and defensive about it - it's fun! The only complaint I've ever had was at one place the music was a little loud.Now I come to think of it,so were some of the clothes... Beats a lot...

    I'm Stright But Like Gay Bars

    I used to live in Columbus,OH. I was a truck driver travelling across the country. I ended up back in Columbus and went back to my favorite bar. It had turned into a gay bar. I ended up hanging out with a lesbian couple. It was a blast. Mentally we just clicked and had a...

    I didn't really enjoy it as it was very clubbish.  It just isn't my scene.  I'm more of a hippie, I guess.  I have been a few times and had an ok time.  It wasn't that much different than a regular club to me, though. This was funny (at least to me, it was...

    I Used To Be Straight But Now I'm A Regular

    I never would have gone in a gay club or bar before but now I'm a regular customer, I've met many men there and enjoy it like you can't imagine. If my wife were to find out it'd be a real problem. I wish I knew I was gay along time ago.

    Hi everyone I was refused entry to a gay bar

    recently for not being gay and it got me thinking If a gay person was denied entry to a bar I normally go to it would probably be in the newspapers the day after so why is it ok to refuse entry for a straight person in a gay bar?

    I'm a female and I have been to gay bars before. Let's be honest, the music is great and as a female, you don't have creepy dudes hitting on you or trying to dance (or dry hump) on you the whole time. This past weekend, a bunch of us went to a gay bar in town...we were more than...

    My Wife Took Me

    My wife took me to a club in Minneapolis, Minnesota called "The Gay 90's" on some holiday, I don't recall which. I had a good time as I recall. I ended up very drunk. I remember enjoying the drag show they had. Overall it was fun.
