I've been a regular to London's gay scene since I was a teenager and I have never been disapointed with a gay night out in London.
This October was my second visit to Paris and as it was also my birthday weekend we all decided to try out Paris' gay scene. With a lot of research we came to the conclusion that we would give 'Queen' a go, which was supposedly the largest gay club in France and Pete Tong was playing (and because there was no real alternative!) so we went for it!
We found it pretty easily, got in ok (paying a wacking €20! with no free drink) but couldn't help but feel a little too... How do I put it.... Gay? Well, I am quite feminine and so is my girlfriend but we still stuck out like a group of lesbians in an upmarket, posh straight club (my DM's V's every other girls Louboutins) There were no 'butch' girls there apart from my friend! Come to think of it I didn't see any gay girls there...
The gay men were obviously still in the closet or too uncomfortable to go near another guy so they were grinding with the louboutin faghags haha! I also felt uncomfortable kissing my missis as the straight guys were gauping at us.
The music was your typical eurovision dance trash which sounded like the same song on a constant loop- didn't even stay long enough to hear Pete Tong (I'm sure no variation in music genre) The drinks were €10 for water- if you want tap water, go to the toilet (in the words of the barman) Alcoholic drinks were €15 each- I can get a cocktail goldfish bowl in Gay late for a fiver!!
Nethertheless we somehow managed to stay there for 2 hours (smoking outside and coming up with a plan B)
Plan B was a bus ride to what we thought would be Paris' answer to The Candy bar, a ladies spot named '3W' -Women with women- which was non-existent I might add!
The whole night was a disaster!
We had more fun running around the louvre pyramid at night! Hahaha...
Paris is beautiful and stunning.
Just leave the gay nights to London! :-)
