We’re working on a larger story about LGBT hot spots and the current anatomy of a “gay” club. Ask anyone and they’ll probably respond “Pantheon” or “Patrick’s.” But the Gay-Straight Young Professionals and other social groups are taking the gay bar wherever they go. And they’re not alone.

So, tell us what makes a gay bar a gay bar. Feel free to offer some personal anecdotes about your favorite hangout. E-mail greg@charlestoncitypaper.com
