The best gay bars in the world are the ones in Palm Springs, California during the winter months.

The weather is great, and gays travel to Palm Springs from everywhere on earth. It gives people in California a chance to see fat people...

The gay Euros and Aussies that come to Palm Springs are all fat, quite lovable, but hugely fat!

However, they seem to enjoy the desert and we're happy to have them, quite literally.

You are correct! However, gay and straight bars do have some things in common. Usually, in certain parts of the US, there are always Patsy Cline records on the juke box, no matter the sexual orientation of the bar.

Patsy has an appeal to both gay and straight, unlike Streisand and Judy Garland.

If you travel to the US, you will find sawdust on the floor of many gay bars, unfortunately.

But, very little blood is to be found. The only fight I ever saw in a gay bar was in Mexico.

The nearest I have seen to a fight break out in a US gay bar, is when the martini is not prepared properly.

I'm not a gay but I like going to gay bars, I think it would be wrong to ban me on the grounds of my sexuality. I find them relaxed and a good place to enjoy a drink, with decent people and good music. I appreciate it happens that occasionally 'meatheads' go along to cause trouble, but you get that in any bar. All they want is a fight, be it with straights, gays or otherwise.
I've plenty of times seen groups of gays in regular pubs, I've never seen it lead to all the straight people walking out so I'm confused as to why it might happen the other way around.
There are plenty of discreet gay bars where it is purely gays, perhaps the loud 'look at us we're a gay bar' places need to calm it down and perhaps not attract the attention of people coming for a look, or be happy that they do.
I go out with gay friends and only once have we been stopped and put to the test - we were still allowed in 'cause the group was majority gay.
At the end of the day I don't understand the ins and outs, and these are just my opinions, but I can't see a problem if a straight man wants to spend money in a gay bar which can only benefit the gay comminity, and let me have a good night out.

Unless the venue is a private members club, people should remember that most bars have a public licence, and that means just that.
Refusal to serve the public could cost you your licence , unless there is just cause! but not being gay is not just cause,
Put the boot on the other foot and think what might happen then
There is not one law for gay and one for straights we all have a public right to drink in public.

Every bar has a public licence they are required to by law, it just means they have a licence to serve alchohol and is served at the discression of the management to whomever they choose. It dose not mean that as a member of public you have the right to be served there atall.

The venue is private property and the owner can decide who they want to let in or not and is in now way attached to the public licence in anyway.

Some club owners jut don't want stratight people in their venue and that is that basically, its up to them who they let in.

Treat a pub or club like someone elses home, or look at it from that point of view. You would have to respect their descision not to let you in based on whatever reason.

Were not saying we agree with it as most of us have straight friends and want them to enjoy a night out as much as the next person. But, I can also see why they do do it.

Hmmmm, can't see you being quite so laissez-faire(sic) about it if it was the other way around somehow.

I'm sure it does happen but if it was publicly declared a straight bar you wouldn't be able to move on this message board for the dolly mixture being chucked everywhere!

Do you try and get into the WI at the Legion When your a man :) ? Its sexist ?

A black club, you wouldnt get in becuase you were white, its racist ?

Or GOLF, Gentlement Only Ladies Forbidden.

I guess its like any club, you could say that its racist, sexist or sexualy discriminating etc. Depending on what your trying to get into.

I know basing entry on someones sexuality on 'should they be allowed in' is pretty sad, even we get questioned because some of us dont 'look gay'

To be honest being discriminated against not being let into a pub or club is nothing! try being discrimintaed against LIFE in general.

Hmmmm, can't see you being quite so laissez-faire(sic) about it if it was the other way around somehow.
