Rainbow Hip-Hop Night: Review

Anonymous review.

This is my first entry for LalaSZ blog post so please be gentle!8041537950308_.pic.jpg

Last Saturday, I joined the Rainbow party at Luna. I arrived at around 9.30pm and was a little nervous as I didn’t know anyone as I’m ‘fresh off the boat’.

I’d seen the advertisement for the party in a group called EveryGays, that a friend had put me in too.

Upon arrival, I noticed that it was a little quiet but the party organizers introduced themselves as well as a few people that they were stood with. 

After getting a drink from the bar, I went to join a table that had only a few people on and decided to bite the bullet and strike up a conversation with them. I’m so glad I did because they had also come alone and were very friendly.

As the night went on, more and more people started to arrive. By midnight, I’d guess that there were about a hundred people there.

There was a raffle draw for a bottle of Grey Goose and some T-shirts but sadly, I didn’t win.

 If I had to say something negative about the party, I would say that the further into the night it got, the smokier the venue became.

Overall, I had a great time and am looking forward to the next party. I’ve already met up with some new friends that I made and plan to meet up with a few more very soon!

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.
