Okay, back when they called it “Gay Paree,” it meant something completely different. Luckily, the gay scene in Paris lives up to the old moniker. Gay clubs in Paris can be opulent, decadent affairs that cater not only to boys who love boys and girls who love girls but also everyone who just wants to party with the best. It’s undeniable that Paris gay clubs have style, class, and that special Parisian panache.
Over-the top scenes can be found at clubs like the legendary Les Folies de Pigalle, instantly recognizable by its enormous red marquee. Here, gay and straight alike enter a crazed late-night festival of trance and hardcore techno, lots of go-go girls, striptease shows, and even a tranny night. The barrage of loud music, disco lights, and smoke makes guests feel like they've entered another world. Nobody in the diverse crowd ever seems to want it to end, whether they’re hot girls, hot guys, hot guys dressed as hot girls, or anyone else looking to leave their inhibitions at the door and throw on a pair of dancing shoes.
With a similarly diverse crowd, Le Queen lets its crazy patrons dance into the night. The music and movement keep going all night long as DJs pump up an already enthusiastic crowd with techno and hip-hop, prompting even the humble set to put on their dancing shoes and join regulars for a dance-off on the two small stages in the middle of the floor.
