SaturGays presents Hanky Panky: Review

WechatIMG24.jpeg

This article was written by a paying guest of this month’s SaturGays and was not written by the owner of this blog.

Where do I begin? You put on your naughty or undercover ‘hoe’ outfit and go pick the hanky of your choice!

Green – Gay

Pink – Lesbian

Orange – Bisexual

Light Pink (I guess)- Transgender

Blue – Straight / Other

Then, you place your hanky in your back right pocket if you are taken or back left pocket if you are looking, I guess that’s why they called it Hanky Panky, and I wanted to take the blue one, no reason specifically, I just like the color.

It all began by entering, getting your free drink token , stamp on your left hand, a lovely pink SaturGays bracelet and then the Hanky of your choice. I asked for mine to be a surprise and I ended up getting a pink one, well, this turned out to be the correct color for me anyway, and then I just hid it under my clothes.

First person I saw as I was walking in:

The lovely Drag Queen, shout out to you for walking in those heels for the entirety of the night!

I was looking for friends from previous SaturGays and spotted a few! Most of the crowd were new faces with all different  colors of ‘hankies’.

To be honest, I was afraid to go as I thought it would be a SaturGUYS event and not SaturGAYS but there were quite a few girls, more straight than lesbian though. Same with the guys, I could probably count the amount of lesbians in there on one hand but it was still a fun night spent meeting new people and squeezing my way onto the dancefloor.

To make it easier, here’s a list of the things which I thought were “Good” and “Not so good”:

Good:

The entire night was enjoyable with my friends.

The handsome GoGos that all the straight girls was going crazy about.(only male dancers)

The location.

All the new faces ( SaturGays will grow, but maybe put an ‘S’ at the LGBT as there will be a lot of straight people.

Meeting up with old friends.

The lighting and music.

Not So Good:

Well, drinks were pretty expensive. (The organiser of this party has told me that there was a drink offer on that consisted of drinks which were three for 100rmb, unfortunately, these drinks were not to my taste)

Only gay guys or friends got more free drink tickets, this was just my observation.

Standing for an hour to get to the toilet- there is only one unisex toilet in the establishment but I have since discovered that their were public ones that could be used next door, on a higher floor.

Late-comers didn’t get a free drink token or a hanky, even though they had paid for their ticket in advance. (This happened to a friend of mine, I cannot speak for all late-comers, only the one that was in my group)

At the risk of repetition, these are only my observations.

I was happy to see all the new faces and how the word is spreading about SaturGays but in some way, I feel the main purpose of the party’s existence is disappearing. It is no longer only an LGBT party.

This being said, thank you to the organizer for planning a fun night! I understand this was the first one you planned alone.

For those who went, I hope you also had a fun night!

I am a huge supporter of all of the LGBT activities in Shenzhen and attend all of the events that I’m able to.

I do not want this to come across as a criticism of SaturGays as the positives of Hanky Panky certainly outweighed the negatives.

A Lollipop Review

27th of January 2018 will be mark as the first Saturgays party of the year, hopefully no the last, I am a regular follower of these Saturgays events, it is not only to support the LGTB+ community in Shenzhen but it is also a good way to meet new people, which I did, so I will start this little review about this super duper great party.

  1. The place: Magma-Dolores Park

The place is small but it is enough to hold what I believe can be up to a hundred people, the service was great and it is not far from a metro stop so it is easy to get to the place without the need to spend a lot of money, the decoration is simple but enough, good lights and private even thou it is next to a main road.

If you want to go back to the place here is the address:

Magma | Dolores Park

NH E-Cool , Industrial 3 rd Rd. Building 2 # 101 Shekou

Pros:  

  • Location
  • Metro station near to the place
  • Private
  • Good ventilation

Cons:

  •  it has only one bathroom and it got some problems with water that were easy solved (Thanks for that!!!)
  • People were allow to smoke inside, not so sure if it was the best option but hey once in awhile a good smoke is ok.

2. The music

Great DJ! Great Gogo dancers! one for the girls and one for the boys, there was a good mix that I sure say most of us enjoyed. I sure did!.

I just never got to know what does it mean Mefaun?! (if someone knows please let me know!)

3. The People

Without any question the best part of this parties are the regulars, and no so regulars, guest of Saturgays, I got not only to see my close friends but I was introduce to new people that were either new in Shenzhen or just visiting, my favorite part was that not only LGTB+ members were there, there were also straight people, married couple or in a relationship, I like to know that the environment is comfortable enough for anyone to be welcome and that is the biggest success of this event.

Thank you to the organizers and I give this party BIG A!

Here few photos I took, I am sorry I Don’t have more but I was busy having too much fun!
