Do you feel safe inside gay and lesbian bars and nightclubs?

"I don’t go out that much, but I do feel safe in the bars. I don’t feel safe going to and from the parking lots to the bars."

Jim Ralston

"I feel very safe, but I have noticed that we’ve had an influx of straight people. They could always end up disagreeing with our lifestyle once they start drinking."

Juan Aguirre
Mural artist

"I feel very safe when I go out. Leave your trick at home. Don’t take your trick, and you won’t get in trouble."

Paul Barrett
Sales

"Yes, I’ve never had a bad experience in any of these bars, ever. It always seems to me like the people there are just trying to have a good time."

Mandy Waller
Veterinarian

"Normally. I usually go to Sue Ellen’s, and the staff gives off a safe feel. I’ve seen them handle people in the past, and they’re usually pretty on top of it."

Sheryl Saxton
Sustainability officer
