Gay community in Zurich or Zug?

I have a gay friend who has just moved here and I have no idea what the gay scene here is. I know there is pride, but does anyone know any good places to go? I doubt anything good in Zug since it's so quiet here.

Tell him to sign up on here and send me a private message, I'd be happy to help. Also, somewhere I've got a post where some of us 'mos have been planning some kind of meetup sometime.

I could also put him in touch with some expat gays I know around these parts.

Most likely in Zürich. Zug ist ToteHose as far as night-life goes.

Laziness?

We really should do it. Maybe even a gringo mini-meetup for Zurich Pride?

Re: Gay community in Zurich or Zug?

Zurich pride? It's started already! Technically 10th to 19th of June, though the parade is on the 18th I believe. Gay expat meetup? Count me in!

On the original post: while your friend might not necessarily want or need to have an actual profile on gayromeo.com, I do find the "guide" section quite useful if he wants an overview of parties and the like. And yes, left to his own devices he'll still find a away....I agree with that!

Re: Gay community in Zurich or Zug?

Hi Everyone

Are you still going to hold that meeting ...... Very new in the city and still try to find my way around and must say a gathering like that would make things more interesting in terms off meeting people.

BTW what do people do here to have fun??? (Like bars and places)

Re: Gay community in Zurich or Zug?

OK, well I'm single again, so I think it's high time to do a meetup. We'll have a gay old time!

That said, I was planning to avoid the Street Parade like the plague. Maybe go to the goth night at Dynamo on Saturday. Anyone wanna come?

Beyond that, perhaps next week, when the Street Paraders have gone? Tourist eye candy may be fun to look at, but they'll be gone so soon...

You can avoid the street parade by holding this meetup in Basel

Re: Gay community in Zurich or Zug?

Hehehe. But I do wanna go to Dynamo that night. And my sister just told me she's having her belated birthday party that evening, too…

Edit: But I bet Basler gays are nicer. Are there any decent gay venues there?

Not that I've found. There are some monthly club nights, but I prefer bars. I guess the population size of Basel doesn't warrant a gay "scene" as such.

Re: Gay community in Zurich or Zug?

Well given that I find the Zurich gay scene rather… lacking, I'm not surprised that Basel doesn't have much.

Re: Gay community in Zurich or Zug?

Two tips. Do what KeinFranzösisch is doing (spy on your neighbours through closed blinds with binoculars like a perv) or use gayromeo.
