Where are they???
I know of a few clubs (like Taboo) but it’s really noisy and not conducive to socializing (just dancing) and I’m looking for some bars where people regularly go, so I can get to know people slowly and get involved in the community, rather than just meet a few people here and there.
Some of the girls I’ve talked to so far have told me there is no tight lesbian community, and everyone is very closeted. I agree that for the most part, this is probably true, but I think it’s possible I’ve just been asking anti-social girls so far and there MUST be a small community out there that I’m just not aware of.
The gay men’s community seems to be very active, with the red house bar area in Ximending. But there are no (last I was there) lesbian bars.
Also, there are some bars that some people have told me are gay bars, but when i go there, there don’t seem to be any gay people (except the owners) so it doesn’t seem like much of a gay bar. What about a very active gay bar, with lotsa lesbians?
If it is true that there is really not a community, I think we should organize one! I know for a fact that there are a lot of frustrated foreign lesbians here in Taiwan looking for a community… We should unite!! lol
Any suggestions on where some good bars are would be appreciated. Thanks!
