"What Type Of Gay Person Do I Want To Be?" (with Michael Ryan‪)‬ Lost Spaces

    • Society & Culture

Michael Ryan, who leads the Gay Bars That Are Gone walking tour in NYC, and loves queer spaces as much as I do, is this week's guest.

Originally from Augusta, Georgia, he first moved to New York for college, and although he quickly threw himself in to the scene, he wasn't sure what kind of gay he wanted to be... It wasn't until he found Splash, one of those old school gay bars that was bold, trashy and, invariably, the place you'd end up at the end of the night, that he found his tribe...

And that tribe was the people that went to Musical Mondays, a night that celebrated all things musical theatre.... And, if you've listened to the show before you know that I'm a bit of a luddite when it comes to musicals, but through this conversation I feel as though I'm starting to understand the appeal a little bit more... 

If you're listening to this on Spotify I'm experimenting a little with their new interactive features - I've set up a simple question - 'What is your favourite musical of all time?' - so if you can have a look at the episode there and answer the question that'd make me super excited.... and I'll be your best friend FOREVER if you say Grease 2!

Do you have any memories of Splash, or clubbing from your own queer scene that you want to share? Well, if you have please get in touch - I want to create the biggest online record of people's memories and stories - go to www.lostspacespodcast.com and find the section 'Share a Lost Space' and tell me what you got up to! Bonus points for embarrassing photos!

You can also find me on Facebook (www.facebook.com/lostspacespod), Instagram (www.instagram.com/lostspacespod) and Twitter (www.twitter.com/lostspacespod)
