Rain Doesn’t Stop Berliners, Pups, & Muscle, Leather Boys During Pride!

A little rain didn’t prevent thousands of people from parading into the streets of Berlin for the annual Christopher Street Day (CSD) parade on Saturday. Rubbermen, pups, queens, muscle men, trans, curious and all came out to the streets for CSD. The parade was special this year in that German lawmakers just voted to legalize same-sex marriage in the country. People from all over Germany, as well as other parts of Europe and the world turned out for the celebration. See below for more photos and videos and check out more of Gay Pride 2017 Events.

Amsterdam Euro Pride Festival of Dancing and Entertainment

funhousexxlamsterdamThe headline should have been “Amsterdam Euro Pride Where the Milkshake Brought the Boys to the Bars” just to be fun on the pun that it started out with a Milkshake festival a week before the canal pride weekend. Amsterdam Pride this year was part of the Euro Pride celebration. Although it did not change it much for me as the canal pride weekend is by itself spectacular.

Fire Nightclub in London’s Vauxhall to Close Temporarily

One of London’s leading predominantly gay nightclubs has announced a temporary shutdown from Monday 31st October-Thursday 15th December 2011. This is one of the most amazing clubs we have seen so when we first heard news of this were taken by surprise. Fire Club located in Vauxhall just on the other side of the Thames in London has a LED lighting system that will take you away. It was inspired by the Justin Timberlake `Rock Your Body’ video.

The Fire complex, in the heart of London’s Vauxhall, incorporates the well-known Lightbox venue, and is an internationally recognized symbol of London’s buzzing gay nightlife. As a result of a licensing hearing in which the club retained its license, Fire will close for six weeks taking advantage of the time to complete refurbishment works, install new production and lighting rigs, and review processes in place to cater for the expanding business.

Fire nightclub has been running for nine years, helping a transformation in the local area to become one of London’s most popular gay villages, with a slew of bars, clubs and leisure business popping up around the Vauxhall Cross area. In this time Fire has hosted some of the biggest international brands in the world, as well as touring extensively through Europe and further afield.

You still have a few days to party at Fire before they re-open for New Years celebrations. Orange on Sunday 30th October, will be a major send off party, as Trade & Beyond present Ultimate. Fire will re-open on the weekend starting 15th December, with a huge re-opening spectacular planned for the weekend. All events scheduled to take place in this time at Fire will be re-located to alternative venues.

London is home to some of the best clubs in the world. G-A-Y’s Heaven nightclub is one of our favorites along with Fire. We hope to check out London again soon and dance like it is the end of the world!

More details can be found at fireclub.co.uk of the re-opening of the club.

Brussels Scene

Brussels is one of the cities a lot of Europeans have to cross and do the train station shuffle.  We stayed here a night on our way to London and had a fun time going to some of the smaller bars and seeing some drag then over to a place I really loved called Boy’s Boudoir.  Boys Boudoir had two hotty toddy bartenders and a tight dancefloor near the bar with very high tech atmosphere.  The whole place seemed clean and had a great sound system playing some great music.  Myst of the people were standing outside but we were having fun sitting down enjoying drinks checking out the bartender and the people dancing.  Across the street from the Boy’s Boudoir is Homo Erectus which is a friendly little bar that has a small drag stage and the boys love to hang outside this place as well in the streets.

We then walked down the street past a straight bar where they had a pee station that was sure flowing everywhere (if your into WaterSports) haha.  Made it over to Rijkeklarenstaart where the BOX club looked like it was closed but it was really open.  You just have to ring the BOX’s door bell and they let you inside where they have a two-story club and nice sized dancefloor with a DJ that will keep you dancing into the afterhours.  It was kind of dead on a Thursday night but I am sure on the weekends it will be packed.  We walked up to the bathrooms and were stalked by some lady who asked us for 50 cents to use the bathroom.  Be prepared to bring some Euros to use their facilities.

Sites such as NightTours.com only had one club listed for Brussels and that was the BOX.  Brussels has no shortage of circuit events though.  La Demence is their famous circuit party that has boys from everywhere in Europe attending with two big dance areas and a darkroom.  It seems to be once a month.

Amsterdam for the Happy

We recently took a European tour and were loving every minute of Amsterdam.  Just walking down the streets I think its either people and their happiness or the smell of pot in the air that makes you feel super high in the daytime.  It is a unique atmosphere that you do not see in many places around the world with all the bicycles and people walking around.  It just seemed like a happy Disney place to me and I could have stayed there a few days longer if we did not have a train to catch the next day.

The club scene was about what I had heard it pretty much died down at 1am which is far too early for me.  We had to go back and nap after running around all day and was hoping we would find a good club to goto around Midnight or 1am and the afterhours club on the night we were there was closed down due to a “drug bust” or something?  A place called CockRing.  The club was boarded up so we walked over to this other bar that was tiny but played good music until 1am when we had to surrender our drinks.

There were a few places that had closed down that we did not get to check out the Club Blue which had a Jeans wearing party on Thursday nights.  It supposedly was the place to be during the weekdays and did not have the 1am time limit.  Hopefully we can check it out next time. We also hear that ARC is closed.  Next time we plan on checking out Club Exit, Club Roque, and Stereo and the weekly parties Blue on Thursdays, HOMA and Trut.

Amsterdam Pride was just a week or so before we were there and looking at the pics they had Tony Moran at an event called Air that looked like a good crowd attended.  Amsterdam Gay Pride 2011 will be Ausgust 4 to 7th.

A must see in Amsterdam is the Red Light district with women popping out of windows – really its quite amusing.  I just wonder where the ones with boys are.  Also see the Sex Museum and the beautiful canals and take a bike ride around town!

Rome to experience the real Colloseum

We  used to frequent a club named Coliseum in South Florida.  It was decked out with art and the very erotic Roman theme.  Frat boys are not the only people doing toga parties it is the gays too.  Nothing is hotter than images of the Roman Cup and other homo-erotic Roman artwork.

The Club Scene in Rome

The gay club in town is the L’Alibi which seems to only be open Friday and Saturday nights on themed parties.  There is also the Gay Village which goes on all Summer long with appearances this year from Boy George and many big name DJ’s.

Gay Bar Near the Forums

One amazing thing we saw was looking over at the Colosseum we noticed a gay pride rainbow flag.  the Flag was on the My Bar bar/restaurant opening out to the front yard view of the monster Colosseum.  Next door to My Bar is another small bar called Coming Out.  Coming Out and My Bar both seemed to serve food during the day and then around 10pm even on weekdays you will see the street in front lined up full of some of the hottest gays in the world.  The Italian boys come out to socialize outside these bars on [street].  Coming out at night seemed to be a younger crowd although the small lounge in the back just does not count for a dance floor at all.  This city needs some major work on the club scene it is more of a stand and smoke scene in the streets than inside any building.

We drove the taxi over to Hangar to check it out and the door was locked up on a Tuesday night.  I still was unable to find out the exact nights this place was open but its more of a bar anyway.  then there is Sidetrack and it seemed more like a bar where you go to watch small computer screens for porn and play with the glory hole than a club as it is listed on sites such as NightTours.  Judging from the photos on the website of Skyline I would say it was a bar and not anything close to a club.

I read on the travel forums that the baths are mainly daytime places to go and kept reading that there were bears and cubs and such there so it did not exactly sound like some type of student orgi.  I guess you have to goto the hostels for those j/k.  We did not get a chance to check out the baths but in some Europeon destinations the baths are better than the clubs with bigger dancefloors such as Paris.

GAY London Idol Thursdays

You know there is a reason we cant put that P-word in the title it is because of our beautiful corporate “word” we have on the right side but you can guess what that word is. It is hard to run a gay blog and not say the Pee Pee word and these pics are almost too much fun for our blog but hey in London they do not mess around on Thursdays at the G-A-Y club. It is always my favorite treat to visit this huge London nightclub and as you can see these boys know how to take it off one night a week at least.

As I walked inside the nightclub I was stalked by a camera and a microphone and had no idea they were taping so there is no telling where that will be… I did not expect the papparazi out on a Thursday night. It brings in part of the fun of the whole event on Thursdays though. The club seems to have promoters who they send out to get in their Thursday night contestants whether you are hot or not they probably get commissions or something when someone goes up for the contest to entertain the thousands in the crowd. Yes, it is busy on a Thursday night and if you are not going for the amateur contest of buns and loose nuggets then you can have fun just dancing the night away… just like any night.

Not sure what I thought about the judges. They seemed to say the typical stuff you have heard all before but seemed a little mean on some of the contestants and then seemed too nice to some. I think the French boy who entered the contest was one of the hottest but they told him he needed to eat… but the winner could have lost some weight in my opinion he seemed hot and blond and very ken dollish but could have loosed a roll. I loved how everyone in the contest seemed to be from out of town on Holiday there for there one night of embarrasement or fun if you wish. Here are some pics of the event.  There was a deaf boy, a buddy holly slash dough boy, ken doll, French tourists (who happened to be boyfriends), and your typical stripper boys who probably enter contests in every city and not to mention there was a fabulous dog on stage.

Update on this post- I just read that the winner gets £100 and grand prize winner gets £1000.  Boys you may be better off going this route and doing the real thing or trying out.  If you wish to be part of the idol showing for the night then you can  text 07769 792 443 or talk to the cute kid at the door.

Prague Czech Gay Places: Valentino and Termix

I am currently in Prague in the Czech Republic to see the Queen of all Queens Madonna .  Madonna’s Sticky and Sweet tour last night was amazing.  She inserted a few extras than I have seen in the past few shows but we will get to that in another post.  Her show was at the Chochav National Amphitheater and it was way far from the scene in Prague.  We took the subway and all Madonna ticket holders got to ride the metro for free without any hassle of messing with tickets and that was a crowded delight.

Prague is a beautiful city and a really nice, modern airport.  I am not sure what the average income in this town is but I cannot understand how everything can be so nice but yet the boys all seem to have no money and are all escorts.  The club scene is fun but the clubs are mostly bars with small dancefloors about as big as a living room and that is if you goto a club instead of a hustler bar.

I felt uncomfortable inside the clubs because you couldn’t tell who was someone who you could talk to without charging up a tab lol.  There were so many escorts out that how do you know when you meet the love of your life inside this place.  Or your trick for the night.  All of the hot guys seemed to have been on their own entrepreneurial clocks.  It was like a Hustlaball party without the freebies.

We went out on a Wednesday and Thursday nights out to Escape, Termix, and Valentinos.  Valentinos was  the biggest but it was not three levels like I had read online unless I read something wrong or went on the wrong night.  Maybe they open up another level on Fridays and Saturdays.  Valentinos  and Termix were both busy.

Termix was so packed on Wednesday night that you could not move.  Packed with hotties but most of them could have been escorts or thugs.   The music was great and the drinks were ok.  There was even a dark room to have some fun with boys you meet right past the bathroom stalls which had full doors on them.  Nose candy girls would surely like those liberal restrooms.

Termix (Trebizskeho 4a, Praha 2, Vinohrady) was so packed you had to stand to the side of the bathroom hall just to breathe.  If you tried to talk through the crowd you might get stuck and every just lock themselves in.  They must not have firemarshalls in this town.  I will say when its packed like this to always guard your wallet in your front pocket and hold on to your valuables.  I had my wallet in my front but I also had a brand new iphone 3g s 32 Gigabyte and got it stolen.  I imagine this happens several times a night on Wednesdays or crowded nights at this bar because they did it very slick.  I had no idea it had happened until I felt naked without my iphone.  Imagine traveling in Europe with no phone which is what I am doing thanks to this thug.

Valentino (Vinohradska 40, Prague 2, Vinohrady) had a lounge on the first floor where you can chill and sit at a table then you walk down a stairs and enter the club where it is normally pretty busy as well but a lot more room to dance.   The DJ is almost on the dancefloor spinning and even dances around on Thursday nights.  He was quite a fun character just like the weds night dj.

The money is in Czech crownes or corunas as they call them and very confusing and the bad thing is at these bars you cannot use a credit card so you almost have to have that iphone for conversion.  Or maybe its better to leave the iphone at home and get ripped off in another way lol.  I think it was around 200 crownes or 300 everytime I turned around.  You find yourself going to the ATM and getting out thousands of these and feel rich until a taxi rips you off.  Make sure you do not let a taxi charge over 200 crownes to take you inside a Praha area.  Their rates seem to vary significantly so you pretty much have to ask what they will charge before you step in the cab.

We also check ed out a male stripper club called Escape and it was located near some 13th century buildings and not too far from a Castle that their president lives in.  At Escape you have to ring a bell to be let inside the gate to go down into the bar.  This is a hustler bar where they have shows every hour or so and do a nude striptease.  I will say these Czech boys are just beautiful no wonder they are all porn stars but its too bad they are all hustlers…not that I have anything against escort boys hell I goto Hustlaball every year and it’s a blast.  I just couldn’t believe how many hotties you will find but its so strange being inside a club and there being more rent boys than there are customers. Celebrities is the local gay diner with a patio which is a fun place to hang out.  There is also Temple and some other places to check out but the main gay clubs are Valentino’s and Termix.

I do recommend you get picked up from the airport from a gay tour guide or someone who speaks English who you feel will not rip you off…although all of them ripped us off.  It is like the city of con artists, beautiful boys, and beautiful scenery.  A really good source for looking up travel information such as hotels and nightlife all in one google map is nighttours.com.

Lollypop @ Radost FX – One place we did not get to check out we hear is the best gay night is Radost, a trendy straight disco club but on the first Friday of every month they host Lollypop, a gay disco which almost every gay boy in town attends. Lollypop is fun but beware that after 11pm they start to charge 200 crowns to get in. Belehradska 120, Vinohrady, Tel: 224 254 776.
