There are a few reasons why I want to go to a gay bar even as a straight dude:
(1) I'm going there only for friends. If I go to a straight bar, I won't be able to make friends. The girls there will think I'm hitting on them and the bros are there for the women. In a gay bar, everyone thinks you're gay so the women are easier to make friends with and I'm cool making friends with gay guys/girls.
(2) Never been to a gay bar. I've heard the music is better.
(3) Getting hit on could be flattering.
Anything I should know?
