Temporary Cruising Zone

The Temporary Cruising Zone bar is a tribute to the gay saunas, leatherdyke bars and queer fetish venues that have been lost over time due to rent hikes, moral panic and the AIDS crisis. Expect red lights, free safe sex supplies, backroom bops, poppers and drinks inspired by the hanky code. Hosted by O. and delivered as an extension of the queer play party of the same name.

Have you tried is a bar full of all the obnoxious remedies people have offered me as a disabled person over the years. Come get your chakras aligned! Get rid of all that toxic 3D matrix energy, it’s bringing you down babe, that’s why you’re so sick! Don’t bother waking up at 6am doing sun salutations and mainlining sea moss gel- just come to my bar because I have tried it all!
