Have you been to a gay bar lately?

What's it like?

I haven't been to once since Covid started.

Is being vaxxed a requirement? Do you have to wear masks? Do people still dance? Is it totally empty now?

I'm curious.

OP, are you under the impression that every gay bar is owned by the same person and governed by the same local laws and statutes?

No can't say I have.

I guess everyone here is over 70, so it's probably the wrong question to ask.

No. We used to have 26 gay bars in our city. Now there's only two.

I have, as a matter of fact. Yes, they were checking IDs and proof of vaccination (though not the booster). And yes, there was porn playing and guys playing pool. I only went because there was a good dj that night, otherwise I don't much like the place. It was fairly crowded and there were a few people dancing but it was more older gays just sitting there and probably making snide comments.

And what about adult video arcades with gloryholes? Are they still open in some places?

And at least with a gloryhole, no breathing on each other.

Yes; I was invisible.

Come to think about it, I haven’t been to WEHO The Abbey, PUMP or any of the others in 2 years. Kinda miss the energy.
