Get your straight on, people! Hearsay has gotten word from its chief informant Sweetie Tweetie Bird that the next Guerilla Queer Bar DC -- you know, that fun and frisky pasttime in which a flock of gays descend mightily upon an unsuspecting straight bar and show those dance-challenged dullards the the real meaning of Christmas? -- is occuring this Friday night, August 24 at 9 p.m. The location? The relatively new Grand Central Club, at 2447 18th Street NW, in Adams Morgan.
GQBDC notes in its top (yeah, right) secret missive to its uber-GLBT following that Grand Central Club's "posted dress code is odd, so watch your gender variance and hyper-queer fashion sensibility. We don't want anyone to get stuck outside. Examples: No sleeveless shirts. No athletic wear. No construction shoes. [...Guess that leaves out Kathleen "Militarily Minded" DeBold...] You might need to hit the thrift stores before you come and look as straight and boring as possible 'til you get in the door. Then you can let loose."
The good folks at GQBDC also note that if you wanna be part of the fun and avoid the line, arrive early.
And for those of you unfamiliar with this gang of assorted queer rabblerousers and hard-partying miscreants, founded and organized by Karl "The Lady is a Tramp" Jones, Amy "Sparkle Toes" Mulry and Chris "From a Gallop to a" Trott, Hearsay points you in the direction of our Scene section, where you'll find 50 savory pix from the April 6, 2007 GQBDC at the Black Cat, a few of which Hearsay has included here just to brighten the page. Ain't that sweet of Hearsay?....
