Gaybar Road1957 collection Gay Bar reissued: "With an introduction by Blanche M. Baker, M.D., 'America’s first advice columnist for homosexuals' who, according to historian and author Will Fellows, preferred the fluidity of Gavin Arthur’s Circle of Sex to Kinsey’s Scale and believed that gay men and women were reincarnations of souls previously embodied by the opposite gender, Gay Bar is a fascinating artifact—a sparse, conversational series of essays about life at Helen’s, a Los Angeles gay bar that managed to be both unabashed and discreet."

RoadTel Aviv vs. Beirut as gay hotspot: "The tour operators said Beirut boasts many gay-friendly nightclubs and other social venues, as well as being home to fascinating history and an authentic taste of 'the Arabian spirit.' There are also a number of downsides for gays looking to visit Beirut. First, and most important, is the fact that homosexuality is illegal in Lebanon, though that law is rarely, if ever, enforced. Nevertheless, there is a prevailing hostility toward homosexuals, especially among more traditional Muslim communities."

    Thanks David Mixner for painting the picture so clearly. Let’s hope our community has the sense to follow your advice. A protest vote doesn’t register on ANYONE’S radar except the person casting it and then bragging about it on Towleroad.

    I was in both Beirut and Tel Aviv this summer. The city of Tel Aviv is a very open gay place, but the rest of Israel, not so sure… Same could be said (to a lesser extent) for Beirut/Lebanon. Tel Aviv is much more “open” and advanced, but unfortunately, so is the attitude by the gay men there, I felt it was very difficult to “connect”, other than Welcome To Israel, Have A Good Time. 6 days in Tel Aviv, not even a kiss, and buddy I tried tried tried! In Beirut, however, I felt the gays there are super-enthusiastic and open and inviting, introducing you around, attitude is minimal towards foreigners, and much much much easier to “connect”, however you want to define that. 😉 But of course both are unique places, and both should be visited. Couples might prefer Tel Aviv, singles might prefer Beirut.
