  • GUIDE 2 LESBIAN EVENTS IN LA! GUIDE 2 LESBIAN EVENTS IN LA!

    • From: ajjordan2
    • Description:

      Whether you’re a native to Los Angeles or a passing visitor, African American women oftentimes have a hard time finding diverse lesbian events to attend that fit their style. Here is an exciting list of party promotions in the LA area that guarantee a diverse crowd:

       

       

      Chocolate & Wine

      Created by Mignon and DJ One in 2004, this monthly party was established “to help promote a sense of community for women who love women.” The organizers started their Chocolate n Wine events in New York City, which gained immense popularity, before moving to Los Angeles in 2007 and creating their presence here. The women are a more upscale and an older crowd than most lesbian parties in LA (average age is between 30-40). Events include dance parties, lounge parties, wine tastings, happy hours, game nights, single’s events, open mic performances, travel destinations and other activities. The parties are unique in that they change venues each month (recent venues include the Robertson, Nirvana, Kyoto Grand Hotel, and the Federal Bar). Recently, the two threw their bachelorette party at the Robertson, which featured free admission, open bar, appetizers, and strippers. This is just the tip of the iceberg, and according to Mignon, “We wanted to create a venue where black women should have no public shame and celebrate themselves”.

      The Catch

      The opposite of the Chocolate n Wine party is the Catch, which attracts the much younger crowd (18 and up). The lesbian nights are held every Saturday at Jewels Catch One on Pico, and draw a predominantly Black crowd. Jewel’s Catch One opened its doors in 1972 as the nation’s first black gay and lesbian disco, named after the founder, Jewel Thais-Williams. The venue contains two levels: a stage and large dance floor on the upper level, and a lower level that hosts weekly theme parties. The atmosphere is pretty loose, and you can come casual or dressy as you please. If you come on the right night, you will see strippers entertaining you from every corner of the dance floor. The venue has been used as a set for many movies such as “Pretty Woman”, “I’m Gonna Get you Sucker”, and “BAP” (Black American Princesses).

      Ladies Touch Entertainment

      The promoters of Ladies Touch Entertainment are known for their summer monthly rooftop parties at the downtown Los Angeles lounge, Icon. Events are hosted by Vivienne Perez, Sinath Yang, Erica Sanchez, Lady Polo, and AJ Johnson. The day party’s atmosphere is complete with dancers, mega-speakers, and an upscale crowd. They also host events at rotating venues, with a recent party being on a cruise ship, called the “Booze Cruise”, as well as a Labor Day weekend party hosted at club Naya in Silverlake. Some of their past events include their New Years Black Out Event at the Standard Hotel Downtown, Los Angeles & Long Beach Pride Events, as well as Dinah Shore's leading diverse event- “A Touch of Seduction”. Their parties usually attract the diverse, but grown-and-sexy crowd and you have a good chance of meeting someone that fits your type. Look forward to new events for the fall, socials, and travel events, they’re doing some awesome things to give back to the community.

      Tomboii Swagg

      Fantasy Fridays at the Robertson is a new party that they created this summer, which is a huge success because of their “no cover all night” appeal. You will find a nice amount of black ladies (stud and femme) that attend this Friday night bash. The Robertson also affords a good sized-venue, with three rooms where you can dance on the dance floors, or chill in the outdoor lounge area. The competing lesbian Friday night party is “Truck Stop”, which is located across the street at Here lounge. Many people choose to migrate from one party to the next.

       

      In LA, night spots close early (around 2am), so there is a need for “After Hours” venues. Tomboii Swagg hosts “Hip Hop Sundays at Eleven Nightclub”, where you can pregame and dance at the popular lesbian Sunday night party at the Abbey, and then walk a couple blocks to Eleven, which doesn’t close until 4am. You’ll find an intimate crowd at this lounge, where you can chill, have a drink, and listen to some hip hop to end your night.

  • My fabulous trip in Japan - To My fabulous trip in Japan - Tokyo, Mt. Fuji, Osaka, Kyoto, Hiroshima

    • From: yasmina
    • Description:

      Japan, both in physical size and global power might be seen as the big brother to Korea, but telling that to a Korean is similar to telling a Scotsman he's English. To the average westerner Japan is probably looked upon as similar to Korea and China but besides eating rice the differences are noticeable. 

      Immediately you are struck at the politeness and accommodation of the Japanese people. Throughout our stay in Japan we experienced great hospitality.

      Tokyo, with a population bigger then that of Delhi, Los Angeles and Beijing combined correctly holds it's reputaton as the great and more expensive city in the world. Taxi's start at 700 Yen (£7; $14; 14,000 won), a meal 1000-1200 yen and a pint of beer around 6-800 yen. However the public transport is superb and in the same manner as Korea, on time to the second. Using the subway (whilst confusing at first) is the best way to see the city, allowing you to see the majority of the city in the two day/nights we were there. The city itself is still recovering from the effects of the Tsunami in March 2011 and still regularly experiences minor after-shocks* with a limit placed on electricity usage at night and the extrememly helpful and normally talkative hostel owner noticeably quietening upon myself asking whether or not Tokyo had fully recovered from the events. Despite this, the famous night-life and shopping Shibuya district located in the west of Tokyo was still swarmed with both people and neon lights on a late August Monday night at 11pm. 

      We had rent an apartment on a vacation rentals website in Japan, even If we didn't found apartment in Korea where we decide to go to hotels.Before leaving Korea we had purchased the JR railway pass (Japan Railways)

       

       Pushing speeds of 300km/h, a journey in a bullet train feels a bit like travelling in a plane, both in appearance and time saved. The journey from city to city (Tokyo>Osaka;Osaka>Hiroshima;Hiroshima>Fukuoka)  took just under 2 hours each. 

      Located between Tokyo and Osaka is Mt. Fuji. The weather was overcast at the time but the mountain can be spotted for miles around and on a clear day the mountain can be seen from Tokyo Tower, 60 miles away. The next three days were spent between Osaka and Kyoto, the two cities close by, separated by a 15-minute train journey. Osaka, big in area but not in attractions can be seen as the opposite to Kyoto, small in size but packed with temples and shrines (both originals and restorations). Once the capital of Japan, Kyoto is one of the few Japanese cities to survive WWII relatively intact and due to this remains a favorite city for many tourists to visit. The city is easy to get around, built in an american grid-like system served by air-conditioned buses much needed on what was an extremely hot and humid day.

       

      After spending the last afternoon in Osaka at the traditional, cultural enhancing Universal Studios it was off to Hiroshima, which along with Nagasaki was subject to the effects of an atomic bomb.

       Here was our trip in this so particular country.
