Queer drinkin'

This week I have an entry for gay bars.

gei bā (gay bar) ゲイバー

This one took some time as I wanted to carefully read over the information I had scattered over three books on my shelves.

The most useful was McLelland, Mark J., Suganuma Katsuhiko and James Welker. eds. Queer Voices from Japan which is an interesting collection of essays spanning decades of queer culture and history in Japan.

I'll be asking my gay friends in Japan if there are any major gaffs in this entry.
