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."
"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."
"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."
"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."
"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."
