    Who else does this?

    Here in KY we get the LGBT community together on the last friday of every month. Since the usual gay bar can get a bit old, on the last Friday of each month we announce a Normal bar throughout the community where the gay community kind of takes over and makes ourselves welcome.. we usually have at least 100 people show up. I was just wondering if you do anything like this where you live?

    I was being facetious towards the lack of cohesion between certain LGBT groups.

    A fail is me!

    I think if we had this where I was from there would be injuries and stabbings icon_razz.gif

    In NYC it would be the hipsters invading a bar in the city... the reverse would of course never happen. They can't be burdened to cross bridges or go through tunnels icon_razz.gif

    I've heard of this before, but never have been in on it. For a while, the gay.com crowd was doing that with a video arcade, skating rink, bowling alley on alternate thursdays. Making their own "LGBT night".

    I've seen it done in LA--and the idea of it seems like a hoot,..BUT--how would gays react if 200 (really non-accepting) straight people invaded a gay bar for a night?

    Formerly the GLBT community (gay, lesbian, bisexual & transgender), until militant lesbians convinced everyone that their smaller but more strident numbers trumped having the more universal "G" as the lead letter in the acronym.

    Hah. I've seen that happen more than the reverse.

    We had it here in LA a few years ago and it was so much fun. Kindof died out here which suxs. Guess the moderators moved or something.

    It is HUGE here in Milwaukee. First Friday every month. I rarely go to the actual takeover because they are just so packed you can't even move.

    It is? I'm working not far from Milwaukee for the next month and a half... I'd be interested in checking this out. Is there an official group or website or something like that? icon_biggrin.gif
