May seem like an Oxymoron, but There is a real market in Gay Sports bars. Of course, it shouldn’t seem too weird. If you’re a gay man, and you want to watch sports, would you feel comfortable in a Straight Sports Bar?
“I think we have to mask who we are when we go to those places, for fear,” Knetzer says. “Unless you’re there with girlfriends.”
Says Greg Razer, “It would be hard for a big group of gay and lesbian people to go to a straight sports bar. I think it’s the same thing that made me uncomfortable playing sports as a kid. There’s still this very masculine, chest-pounding feeling to it. It just makes you feel like you can’t be yourself.”
“But you get that one drunk idiot who could make a scene,” Razer says.
