    My answers:

    (1)
    Sped up pop artist vocals and amateur screaming divas over the same tribal looped gay house genre which hasn't evolved since the year 2002 and has plagued gay clubs thanks to out-of-touch promoters, DJs, and general club staff who think this is what gay people like to listen to. Thankfully it's gradually phasing out with the help of Electro House, Hip Hop and general Rock music.

    (2)
    Walking into a club filled with well dressed tall skinny white people and no other ethnicity. It's like I can smell Stepford Wives Crack in the air. And the moment I say I like fat Mexicans they stare at me like I'm the one dissenting Nazi that has compassion for the Jews.

    (3)
    Cigarette smoke. Yeah yeah yeah we all know you're gay and you're oppressed. But do you have to let everyone know that you can't deal with stress by pumping out cancer sticks and exhaling that ish back into the club? I mean shit, I masturbate all the time but you don't see me doing it in public. So put your damn cigs away so that I don't vomit all over you when I try to make out with you because you finally looked pretty to me when I got too drunk.

    What's your answer(s)? What hates you most about gay clubs? And be honest. Let's start some strife n shit.

    DISCLAIMER: to all those presupposing I hate gay clubs overall, this is not the case. I'm merely pointing out the negatives of them. That does not mean they outweigh the positives or that they are generally unpleasing overall. Having said that, if you make a globalization that I'm bitching about clubs, complaining about places I should not be at, etc., then I'll flame your ass until it's on fire.

    I hate cigarettes. Thankfully in Boston you have to smoke outside. I hate the pounding club music. I just want to dance to some r&b and hip hop. But the thing I hate the most is how the hike up the price for drinks on Gay night. Beers that are usually $4 are $7.

    Probably one of my biggest hates. I wind up having to get absolutely trashed just to drown it out.

    Haven't had such a problem like that in Toronto, but I've only been to a few. My first was actually filled to the brim with East Asians... Might have been a theme night, but it was pretty cool.

    No smoking indoors up here, so I'm alright.

    My most hated part of clubs... About a week later when I actually start remembering things about the guy I was making out with that make me cringe.

    whiney bitches who hate clubs, come to them anyway, act like superior assholes, and ruin the mood of the place for everyone who was having a good time before they came in and fucked it all up. stay at home and listen to your own music in your smoke-free house with all the fat mexicans you want. you'll save money and then i don't have to work as hard cheering all the white trash back up so i can pay my bills.

    Well, the one thing I hate for sure is when someone thinks I HAVE to hoop up with him even though I rejected him. And then he starts following me around, buying drinks, asking to dance, blah blah... gee, "no" means no God damn it.

    And many times the music bugs me.

    I guess that's all icon_smile.gif

    Sloppy or cheap club-owners! Heck they rake in the $$$, so hire some cleaning staff. Floors sticky as fly-paper. Tables your elbow needs to be pried off of, and bathrooms you can smell from half the club away.

    On the other hand, we used to love the mix of every cross-section of gay society, dancing, people-watching, tear-it-apart-and-stick-it-back-together-bleeding music and general kookiness.

    sorry, just can't stay on the 'hate' thing for long. icon_biggrin.gif

    I think you find what you came expecting to find when it comes to this. I enjoy myself if I'm out. I suppose if I had to name an annoyance it's being with a friend who complains that everyone around them is too young, too thin or too whatever. Why even come out if they're determined they'll hate it.

    Maybe it's just me, (but unless it's work) if I hate doing something I try to avoid it. I'm just saying...

    In my city the popular gay bar's actually show porn on the television screens! What I dislike the most about gay bar's overall however has to be the lack of diversity.

    Wow. Feel the love in here! icon_wink.gif

    I hang out at a local place here in LB, and also work there p/t. I have to say.....I don't really hate it at all. I love loud, pumping music, crowds, and they don't skimp on the drinks. A double anywhere else is a standard here. Also, in CA, you have to smoke outdoors.

    One thing that does annoy me a bit: Newbies. Young, gayboys that try very hard to be mini divas. I usually just point and laugh, and take another drink.

    I don't think the clubs are responsible for diversity, it is a spontaneous thing, those who come, do so.

    I have an issue with the music. It's so loud you can not communicate with one another. Hip-hop / rap is popular too and I can't stand it. So loud hip-hop/rap music is my only problem with gay clubs these days.

    Here in Ohio, people have to smoke outside and that's alright with me however, I think it's wrong for the state government to impose it. The one thing I absolutely hate more than terrorists is control freaks.

    Used to be cigs. Now that's a rarity. I don't go out much but usually enjoy it.

    I've always really enjoyed going out to gay places, if I didn't I wouldn't be working in one... I guess my only beef is the music.. and only part of the time.
    My last bar-tending gig (which I left just a few weeks ago) I got to be the DJ too cuz it was outside on the patio. I was the only employee out there and the sound system from inside wasn't connected, so I had a blast listening to anything I desired.
    Now, the place I'm at is A LOT nicer (in the sense its not a dive at all), it draws in a different/slightly younger crowd and the music gets repeated (mostly pop/dance).
    Don't get me wrong, they have a large variety but there is SO much crappy dance music out there. There is a lot that I like, but a lot that I don't..
    Other than that, bad attitudes and rudeness are never a good time. Having to work in an environment such as a gay bar, I've really learned to tune it out to the point where rarely notice it. I believe that its one of those things that will only affect you if you allow it to.
    Also, I've noticed that closer to the end of the night once people have loosened up more with some drinks, that most attitude (if any) tends to disappear.
    As for smoking, they have to go outside and since I'm no longer working on a patio, I don't have to breath it in anymore. YAH! icon_biggrin.gif

    Here in Toledo the one and only Lesbian club closed "Gildas", a new one opens next week, "Outskirts". So, they come to our club in the meantime and it's great for business. It's no bother, I'm glad they feel welcome with us.

    I love gay clubs. Love them. Ya, the music is trashy and drag queens scare the bajezus out of me. But I love going and dancing my ass of for hours. I could care less about bad attitudes, repetitive beats, and a lack of a descent bartender because I am having way too much fun shakin' my thang.
