Reviews of gay bars on yelp

I just checked Yelp for some reviews of gay places in a city I will be visiting shortly.

The reviews of one large dance club had mostly straight women reviewing it and they all loved it. They loved the music, the atmosphere, not being groped, the drag shows, the friendliness, the great service, the dancing, etc.

The only bad reviews were from a couple of gay men who complained about rude service, ugly people, and long lineups.

So that's pretty much it right there. Straight women and gay men seem to have completely different experiences of gay bars. Women love the novelty, fun, and uniqueness of it and enjoy it for what it is and don't take it seriously. Gay men seem to forget about all that and focus on personal slights and minor inconveniences. They perhaps place too much importance on it.

Your sample is a little small for such generalities.

When I was young and first coming out and finding my way in the gay world I loved clubs too, for all the reasons these straight chicks do. They were fun, exciting and I felt so free and welcome there.

That excitement only lasted a couple of years, of course. I kept going to clubs but only to get drunk, laid, and because my friends were going.

Now I hardly ever go to clubs. Not my thing anymore. But I understand why young queers and straight girls like them.

Anyway, I was checking out the yelp reviews because I want to go out and get laid on my trip. Just like the old days!

Why not say where?
