I know most Dlers probably don''t give a shit, but I really wanted to know what are the "best" cities for black and latino gays. Well, "best" is based on the individual, so I guess I''m just asking about pure numbers, bars and nightlife, organizations, etc. Wherever gay blacks and latinos have the most presence.\
For Blacks, Not L.A. and San Francisco. So, Atlanta, NYC, DC, Chicago? Maybe Oakland?\
Latinos - NYC, Miami?\
And, if NYC, then what particular locations?
What would be a mecca for Muslim men?
That brownstone house where my baby lives.
D.C. for sure. Tons of black gays there (and white gays, too, for that matter)
Not Atlanta or NYC. Why not SF? Because blacks are a smaller minority there? Nonetheless, things are better there than elsewhere by any objective standard. Columbus, Ohio would be a good place.%0D
Blacks: Atlanta, Washington DC, Detroit%0D\
Latinos: Miami, San Diego, Los Angeles
Blacks: New Orleans%0D\
Latinos: Miami and San Diego
Atlanta and Detroit are certainly not meccas for gays of color. Just the opposite, in fact.%0D\
For Latino gays, Chicago is near the top of the list.%0D\
For black gays, college towns are likely best.%0D
There aren''t blacks in Atlanta?
"Atlanta and Detroit are certainly not meccas for gays of color. Just the opposite, in fact."%0D\
Atlanta definitely is. Just ask Usher.%0D\
Probably New York. Despite what is said on DL, New York gays are pretty integrated socially.
Atlanta is the capital of the black gay world. This is Gay 101.
Atlanta is nost certainly a gay mecca for black men.
I would guess the US mecca for Muslims would be NYC or LA. More cosmopolitan in general?
r11, NYC is certainly not integrated socially in the gay scene. However there is a very active black gay community here in NYC. I would say it''s a good place for black gays. We have our own parties, our own media, our own "celebrities." Its kind of underground which shocks me a bit because it''s so obvious if you know the right people and where to look, but the black gay scene is definitely healthy here.
"Latinos - NYC, Miami?"\
Obviously R15 doesn''t watch that A List. Those guys are A List and black gay men seem to be all over that show. One of the main guys is married to a black guy.
Not so R12 and stop flogging your overpriced condo on Ponce. You''d have to be a subnormal moron to be black and move to Hatelanta.%0D
this is YEAARS old but um... Atlanta is DEFINITELY the black gay mecca of the U.S. Yes there are tons of gays of all colors but as far as black gay men who love other black gay men... ATL is the mecca.D.C.,Chicago,NY,Detroit and Philly come to mind as well. But def ATL
[quote]What would be a mecca for Muslim men?
r1 deserves a little applause for this one.
Huge gay scene in Pulaski, Tennessee. Darkies and wetbacks are welcome.
black gay men gather at church
Just watched a concert by comedian Paul Mooney, filmed in Atlanta. He tries to come off as macho but seems gay to me. Dwight from Atlanta Housewives was seated in a VIP box seat. Anyone know Paul Mooney?
[quote]He tries to come off as macho but seems gay to me..
And why would you be trying to portray "gay" as different from "macho"? What sort of propaganda are you slipping into that comment?
Black gay mecca = Atlanta
Latino gay mecca = Miami
New York for Latinos. They've got several bars that cater specifically to gay Latin immigrants. The Web, once an Asian bar, is not almost exclusively Latin. Plus, there are several all-Latin bars in Queens.
99% of the strippers and go-go boys in the city are Latin.
My white friends who have a burning desire for Latino boys, particularly those of the bus boy/delivery boy variety find New York a heavenly candy story of sex.
You do know that Atlanta is the gayest city in America now, right? Eclipses NY and SF. It is certainly the center of the black gay universe as well. Latin... I'm thinking NY, LA, Miami, Ft. Lauderdale...
Watch the young Mooney in this clip from a roast of Richard Pryor - he's outed like 100 times. Plus, we know RP sucked cock too.
Latinos -- as far away from Mami and Papi as possible.
I have met Paul Mooney and I must say, he is a naturally funny person unlike many other comics.
I think his manner of talking *gayish* is part of his act.
It's a combination of southern black, valley girl and catskills, all rolled up in one hunky man-body.
he hurt my feelings though
It depends what you mean by "Latino." For Cubans and Puerto Ricans, it's Miami, Tampa and other Florida cities, without question.
For Mexican Americans and recent arrivals from Mexico, LA or Houston.
Latino is Miami. Never got dicked so often and hard than when I was in Miami.
I left my hole in Miami.
Mexican-Americans - Los Angeles (insanely hot guys here for that scene)
Mexican? They're all short and fat little Incas. My vision of Latino is in Miami.
Definitely Miami for the Latinos. Not Mexicans or centrals, lots os south Americans, cubans and peurto ricans. Haitians and Europeans too. Most people speak Spanish.
I'm heading there for the weekend, have a place there, beautiful people. But the drivers...oy vey, makes NY drivers look like obedient rule followers, it's like Buenos Aires ... Crazy.
Whatever floats your boat, R34. I prefer Native-American stock guys over the half-nigger mongrel Latinos of the Caribbean and South America.
R36 rather desperately needs a Klan flag jammed up his ass.
NYC is a mecca for dudes who love Latino and Blatino dudes. All those buff Dominicans and Ricans make it first. DC is the mecca for dudes who like black dudes. DC dudes are buffer, more attractive than ATL dudes.
R30 Judging from what Richard Pryor says on the Video at R28. It would seem Paul Mooney likes the Man Sex.
Do yall remember that BET show 'Oh Drama' and Mooney was a guest. It was a show bout gays and sme anti-gay pastor was there with his church members in the audience. Well Paul was throwing words back at the fat bitches when one said "Yall are sick". I remember Mooney kept telling them "I will NOT be judged by the likes of you."
I was disappointed he didn't get up and kicked the heifer in her cunt.
Miami is very homophobic. New York for Latinos. For blacks, probably Chicago.
Its seems like everyone is closeted in Miami. The island culture dominates all other things here. Its really unfortunate because I dont think you will find hotter Black or Latino men in US. The Caribbean and South American people mixing together makes for exceptionally good looking guys.
Where are the most whores at?
D.C. is a popular gay black mecca. In fact they have the East Coast Black Gay Pride day celebration here every Memorial Day Weekend.
It's funny how the vibe in city gets because it's also the massive Motorcycle Rally the same weekend.
DC Black Gay Pride has been in decline for over a half decade now. People are going to Miami and Puerto Rico on Memorial Day now. ATL's Labor Day Pride is now bigger.
Bi and gay dudes are more masculine in Miami than NYC and DC. There are a lot of hot homothugs/bithugs in Miami and Florida, not stereotypical at all.
So which city is the Gaysian mecca?
r47 in Miami/Florida its frustrating to not know who is gay and who isnt. But yes, there are a ton of gay and downlow black & latino men who you would have no idea are gay until they come on to you.
Dc has the most segregated gay community in the nation.
r49, that is why Miami dudes are so hot. SO many masculine hot dudes who are bicurious or heteroflexible. That is why I love that city!
have been friends with mooney for years, he is bisexual, prefers men, and is a alcoholic. neither are a big secret in hollywood.
Mr. Mooney likes cock?
Sebastian Cruz lives in Miami. Hot bisexual dude.
What are the hot black clubs in DC? I only like to go places that play hip hop.
What area in Chicago is black gay mecca? I am thinking of moving there in the fall.
... pardon me while i slip into the kitchen and consult my blaaasian wiffish (that would be black-asian mix nelly wife fish).
Is Escuelita still the place for hot heteroflexible blatino dudes?
Do you want real Latinos or the fake Mexican kind.
Most Mexicans are like 90% or more Indian so they don't look much like Latinos you normally think of.
You want Spanish looking Latinos, like PR's and white Cubans and Argentinians
DC by far is the mecca
Charlotte is becoming a major African American same-gender loving magnet.
Whichever troll keeps on saying NYC for Hispanics is dead wrong... There are several viable candidates for Hispanic gay meccas, but NYC just isn't one of them.
Are there any black bi/gay clubs in Boston?
Boston is a haven for Brazilians
DC and Charlotte are black Same-gender loving capitals
You'll find a lot of black gay clubs outside of Atlanta, DC, Chicago and NYC are often more underground.
Dc for black and Miami for Papis!
It is undisputed that DC is King for Black DL/bi/gay dudes, but there are some secondary cities that are surging, including Charlotte, ATL, and Baltimore. Miami is king for Latinos, but NYC is pretty huge for them too.
Atlanta has a major problem.
It's in Georgia.
Black gay Mecca: Marfa, Texas.
Latino gay Mecca: Juno, Alaska.
How about Houston?
Uhm, EVERY fucking city in the country is a "black and latino" mecca, which would mean there would be a healthy gay population.
I'm glad to hear DC is a mecca for someone. White Washington is dull, homogeneous place. Not that it was ever Party Central, but jeez, they must be putting laudanum in the water.
r75, White Washington is not all there is, by far.
The issue with DC is that their aids rate is soo high its scary
Every black guy in Houston does drag on the weekend.
What about gaysians?
SF and LA. Where else? Honolulu?
DC is the best by far
Memorial Day in DC is huge for black same-gender loving Americans.
Black Pride on Memorial Day in DC is incredible. A bunch of buff macho black dudes who are on the Downlow or Bisexual fill the streets.
[quote]Black Pride on Memorial Day in DC is incredible.
Damn! I missed it again this year!
As a proud Black gay male, I can tell you that NYC is NOT a great place for men of color.
Black - Atlantic, Chicago.
Latino - Los Angeles
R86, I'm from Europe, so excuse me if this is a dumb question, but.. gay latinos in LA, do they usually date other latinos, or do they go for white gays? I've always been curious about this.
Charlotte is the fastest growing mecca
NYC is absolutely a gay Latin mecca. There are many thousands of Puerto Ricans, Dominicans, Colombians, Brazilians & just about every Latin nationality represented in NYC.
Miami is just as much a gay Latin mecca, in proportion to its size vs NYC. Miami's population is 65% Latino. Cubans being the largest, but lots of Venezuelans, Argentines, Colombians, Brazilians & Central Americans.
How about Oakland?
For Blacks, definitely NYC. Chelsea bars are teaming with young Black guys.
Every black person I know either wants to move to Atlanta or has relatives who already live there.
atlanta sucks for dating Am a young successful AA who nice looking but i hate it here. this city is only good if u want to fuck and party
Why would you ask if you know DL doesn't give a shit? And why would you ask this sort of question on DL anyway?
r94 I would go on a date with you tonight if you were in my city...Im realizing that younger black people in general don't date, just a lot of partying and fucking
r95, and who are to know if DL gives a shit? do yourself a favor and quench your thirstiness with some Clorox bitch
Idiot, the OP is the one who said DL doesn't give shit, read before you post, R96.
Doesn't anyone here reside or visit a city called New York?
Please New York is THE gay mecca for gay Latin men - you can't walk into any department store, gym, park, hospital, restaurant, or subway (heading into Queens or Washington Heights) without feeling like you are on a La Escuelita Gay Pride Parade float.
R98, those are not the type I'm looking for. I like the muscular heteroflexible or bicurious macho Dominicans in Washington Heights. The blue collar ethnic bros.
r99 their baby mamas are going to cut you brah!
Why put these two groups together?
Dinge queen thread
what is dinge?
Find a community near a large prison.
What does "latino" mean anyway? People who speak Latin?
People from Latin American countries. Latinos include black people.
Are Brazilians considered Latino since they're not Spanish but Portugese?
[quote]People from Latin American countries. latinos include black people.
Then they also include caucasians and asians.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
