Gay Club Promoters Down South: The good, the bad and the assh*les
It seems like the longer I’m out and about on the gay scene in Louisiana the more I want to just stay inside and watch old episodes of Sex and the City. Does that sound harsh? It’s not. It’s the truth and baby, the truth hurts. The main problem I keep finding in the gay clubs out here (and by out here I mean New Orleans) is that the best interest of the club patrons is never at heart. It’s all about money and popularity for most promoters and THAT does not set well with me. While I understand peoples bills have to get paid, I also know that you don’t have to be a grimey b*tch to do it. Hacking social networking pages, calling fire marshals, and spreading lies about other promoters to try and attract a crowd to your event is PATHETIC and sad, and happens all too frequently.
It’s sad when you try to put on a nice event for the LGBT community in your town and they don’t want to go because a dress code is enforced. It’s sad that promoters are arguing with patrons are arguing with promoters via Twitter and Facebook about petty personal differences they have with each other. This competition to see who can be the most “popular lesbian” on the scene is getting old. FAST, Why not challenge yourselves instead of challenging each other? The best way to succeed is to master YOUR OWN craft. Stop basing your success on ridiculous comparisons between yourself and other club promoters.
I personally am tired of dealing with messy lesbians in a rundown club standing around acting like ass holes to each other and posting what they think are “witty” comments about the b*tch they can’t stand on the other side of the club. GET OVER YOURSELVES. Life does not end in the gay club. I don’t know how many times I have to say this. Lesbians and Gays all over the world are in a position where they can get married and start families with each other. Why are we still partying in trashy clubs and dealing with lesbian drama between club promoters who don’t even give a damn about us at the end of the day?
With all this being said I wanted to take leave this post on a high note and thank all of the promoters and entrepreneurs who are trying to do something good for the LGBT community. I admire Traxx Girls, Her Houston Splash, L Flight (Kidd & Eb), and Amuse Bouche Entertainment for continuing to challenge themselves by bringing something NEW and fresh to the table. TheFabFemme.com loves you! I also want to encourage young woman to act like young ladies and not ANIMALS and sluts when they’re out and about. You don’t have to be completely over the top just because you’re gay. The splits in the two sizes too small onesy in the middle of the dance floor is just wrong.
