    In Texas we definitely have our fair share of

    gayborhoods and gay bars as well and to be honest the one's I've been to are pretty good although they're kinda slipping on their music though. Some of the guys there are pretty cute too sadly I haven't been in a while just because I wasn't in the mood but since school is about...

    Fun Story

    I don't think you can really go anywhere more fun then going to a gay dance club. Seriously. Many years back, a Guy I'll just call Loki, had invited me to go out with him. We ended up going to a place called Omaha Joy. That night they were having drag competitions. I had a...

    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.

    Been to Quite a Few!

    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've Been to One a Few Times

    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...

    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?

    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...

    My ex-girlfriend and me were out in Newcastle

    one night, and she introduced me to Powerhouse. Honestly, I think we were the only two straight people in there. But what a night!! I danced my a**e off (possibly not the best choice of phrase!) And it was so good, every time we went to the Toon after that, we ended up there...

    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...

    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...
