Part history, part pop/sub-culture intro, and ALL fun.

Before hitting the bars, we’ll start in my home with introductions. First to each other and then to the history of the Castro neighborhood and gay bars in general via a little powerpoint presentation I’ve created (#NerdAlert).

We’ll also play a lighthearted game I’ve made up to discover what gay “tribe” we each belong to—bear, twink, or jock, etc—while learning about subcultures among gay men.

Now, to the bars! We’ll head out to apply what we’ve learned by visiting three of my favorite Castro bars that each showcase different scenes.

Our first stop will be a popular gay sports bar.

Next, a bar that’s also a historic landmark.

Finally, a “wild card” stop that will be tailored to that particular night.

By the end of our circuit, you’ll have received an introduction to navigating the Castro and will have sampled a small slice of the myriad of gay male subcultures within the larger, beautifully diverse LGBTQ family.

Absolutely EVERYONE is welcome on this experience, just note that the bars cater mostly to gay men.
