I'd have to say that it's pathetic down the village. I used to go a lot but between the young Pretentious queens, the hen parties and the straight men who think that they can pull you along with the fact that myself and my girlfriend are never allowed in 90% of the pubs and clubs as we are apparently straight - i don't go anymore. It's the one place where we're allowed to be a couple and yet i can't go anywhere. Forgive me for having long hair, wearing makeup and heaven forbid a skirt, I'll cut off all my hair and wear lumberjack jackets. I've even had straight guys telling me that I don't have to pretend to be gay if im not interested! I'm just glad that I met my gf when I did because now, I don't have to worry about meeting anyone and there's never a chance of that happening as everyone is straight and I'm not allowed in anywhere! As for the hen parties who come down and say things like, 'oh look it's a tranny - let's go and talk to the tranny'. You are so pathetic I can't even begin to describe. And while I'm ranting - to all the straight people who give me funny looks when i hold my gf's hand or kiss her when im in the village - ITS THE VILLAGE! People actually kiss people of the same sex! This is the only space where i can be affectionate with my partner and what happens, i get chatted up by men and bounchers tell me i'm straight - forget ID cards, i think we need gay / straight cards!

I promise I'm a nice person really and I'm up for anyone going anywhere and to all the bouncers in the village - just because we have long hair doesn't necessarily mean that we're straight!

"I've gotta say I would feel slightly uncomfortable drinking down there (being straight and all!)."

How ridiculous isn't it sad that a full grown straight bloke isn't secure enough in his own sexuality to sit in a gay bar.

Im straight in a relationship for 3 yrs and i have been drinking in the village since i was 16 yo. Never did me any harm

Quoted from this message



And as I said, the reason id feel uncomfortable is because id feel like i was imposing on another scene (being straight and all ;-)) But that would by no means put me off drinking down there if I was out with a mixed group.

Try reading before posting.

I don't believe you.

You even type straight.<whistle>

So does this mean you have to be a raging stereotype to actually be allowed in? Seems a bit strong to me but it is the premises right to admit who they like, whether they are smart about it or not.

tis sad but true. I once pulled someone who looked like a mixture of Charlise Theron and Sarah from Girls Aloud and we tried to get into one pub and they wouldn't let us because we were 'obviously straight girls pretending to be gay........

then lots of straight men offered us money to watch!!!!!!!!

Bwa hah ha hah!!

Fair play mate<ok>

I have experienced similar when I was out with my gay girlie friend for an evening who is lipstick/straight looking. We got stopped in the street whilst trying to find a party by some ginsoaked old crone who kept telling me to "make a move tonight;-)".

Didn't matter how much my mate told her she was gay this old bird wouldn't have it. If she'd have seen us both at the bar 20mins earlier checking out all the girls she probably would've fainted from disbelief!

Weird, call me stereotypical but I thought gay lay-deez either went for butch or feminine, not both. Ho hum, learn summink new every day.

As a brief foray back on topic, does that mean these masculine looking girls get refused entry around the village because the door staff doesn't believe they are women?

Back off topic though, have you ever checked out what you thought was a butch girl who turned out to be a fella?<laugh>

Well if it's me and a few mates out for drinks, what's the point of feeling on edge all night incase one of the barstaff's 'gardar' spots a negative? All these strict enty policies are there for a reason - to put off straight people. Whats the point of 'acting gay' all night just to drink in peace?

i dont go for butch or fem - i go for gothy looking!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (says with sly smile creeping across face!)we all do things when we're drunk.

I was convinced that someone was a boy once but apparently, the next day i was told it was a lady.

Ive also been hit on by a cross dressor or Transvestite called Debbie - that was a wee but scary!

in an ideal world there'd be no such thing as straight and gay bars - it just wouldn't be an issue.

In general, straight folk are welcome where they are there for a good night out and not just to see what the gays get up to or get all offended if someone chats them up.

Because the homophobe mentality still very much exists, there is a need for gay bars, and as such, there should be a majority of gays in them - or at least 50/50. If it becomes a majority of staight folk, it isn't a gay bar anymore and gays will go elsewhere.

In years to come, none of this will be an issue, but sadly it's how it still is today.

What makes a gay bar gay? Should the majority of the people in there be homosexual? Some bars on Canal Street think so, and to keep straight people out, they're actually testing men and women for their 'gayness'.

But should this be an issue at all? Does it matter what sexuality you are when you’re out on in the Village? Are gay venues right to turn away straight punters?

Curses. Sold out.

Re vamps in mirrors: If you are that hot you can be forgiven needing a reflection.
