    coincidentially. my first time at a club was at their gay event (im straight and it was a big misunderstanding, and i met a cute straight girl so it was good at the end),

    i specifically remembered the guys (assumingly gay) went crazy for gaga songs, and specifically Black eyed Peas time of your life (dirty bit).

    Don't want to make any wild assumptions but they'll probably be expecting you to play music...

    yeah thanks for the reply. gay dudes have hot friends. But i am guessing you cant drink too much cause that hot chick could be a dude when you have your beer goggles on. OK gaga check. dirty bit check! i am going to play disco as well. I am just setting up the first 30 minutes or so and from there i am going to wing it, 5 hours tonight. so i am just going to go with the flow

    rihanna, katy perry, marroon 5 (moves like jagger),
    depends on the crowd really, just like any bar/club just play good music.
    if you want to play some stereo typical but good music have a look at this list.
    you might get a few ideas from it.

    a gay audience is a demanding audience;

    they will want some hot club tunes and some cheesey pop the trick is getting it all in the right order......

    If you only play house it will bomb, think of it as a party night and be ready to play some thumping dance anthems and commercial music together in the same set.

    Dropping some tunes from the DJs from Mars back catalogue would be a safe bet.

    just seems kind of cliche to play every single gay bar anthem you've seen in movies.

    i could be mistaken, but wouldn't the clientelle appreciate that much more than hearing all the standard go-to tracks straight djs who are out of their element gravitate towards?
