Queer Cheer!

Ho, ho ho! It’s that time of year again. December’s holiday-themed live shows and concerts should please anyone with alternative and traditional tastes.

BARchive: Happy Endups

The Endup, one of San Francisco’s oldest nightclubs, has managed to endure 38 years of tumultuous history while maintaining its popularity.

The “wet jocks strap” version was also featured in a porn movie.
