    This Friday is an event called Guerilla Queer Bar (GQB), where all of us gays go in and takeover a straight bar. It's not the normal bar crowd at all. The bar changes every month, but is always the second Friday of the month. They don't release the location of the bar until about 24 hrs before the event.

    Post if you are thinking about going. Bring some friends. It is usually 21+, sorry.


    Date: Friday April 11, 2008
    Time: 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
    WEAR: YELLOW (People try to, but don't always)
    WHERE: The Belmont (roof), 305 W. 6th Street, 78701, 457-0300




    You can check out their site http://www.smokingbanana.com

    FYI - Our ONE-HUNDREDTH invasion is scheduled for July 11, 2008.

    One yellow t-shirt here, and it's from a prison rodeo. (Don't ask!)

    There are definitely quite a few gay events that go on in this town besides the bars. Another monthly event I've heard of, but never been to is Berry (or Barry) Hill. It's on some Sunday every month at a restaurant. There is also the Hill Country Aids Bike Ride coming up too.

    Are the guys who participate obnoxious about taking over the bar? I mean, do they draw a lot of attention to themselves?

    I would like to socialize with more gay guys in Austin, but unfortunately I don't like to draw attention in that manner.

    Maybe I'm just lame. But, I'm not closed minded and am willing to check it out.

    I've been to these and the vibe you are conjecturing about is simply either a myth or a prejudice.

    In SF I heard they're a bit more in-your-face about it.

    As with most social scenes in Austin, it is both mixed and relaxed.

    See y'all Friday!

    It is definitely more of a relaxed feeling. More like 100+ gay guys just happened to end up in a bar and just sit back and enjoy some alcohol.

    I've only been to it a couple times. I've seen it where we are like 95% of the people in the bar, and other times where we are like 50% of the people. It's just a good time though, bring some friends.

    Jeez Rugger, I didn't mean for it to sound prejudiced, but I can understand how it might come off that way.

    Sounds fun. Keep us posted with the details.

    Hopefully tomorrow evening I'll have the location and will update here. Otherwise it probably won't be till Friday by noon.

    Sorry for the short timeframe, but it's the nature of the beast, and I don't have any control over the beast.
