A sea of Heads

I went down to Club Rage in West Hollywood with Marcos and Peter the other night. I usually have a good time....for the most part. The problem with Rage is that it's an 18+ joint...it's usually a twink-fest, and there's rarely room to dance. This was especially true last night as we were literally shoulder to shoulder on the dance floor because it was so packed. However, it does have a very nice dance floor and some very nice lighting and sound equipment (which they boast as state of the art). Apparently Fridays, which are called "GameBoi" is an Asian night. I really didn't think anything of it, although I did notice that about 80% of the people there were Asian, rounded out of course by the usual 2% strangely old and creepy old guys. Peter made an interesting observation that, assuming that many of the Asian kids were children of first generation immigrants, people coming from a country where homosexuality is much more of a taboo than it is here in the states, that there was probably a much larger number of people who's parents not only didn't know they were there, but would probably suffer a minor coronary is they did find out. Also, as I allude to in the title of this post, when you're 6'1" in a room filled predominantly with people of an ethnicity that has a smaller mean height, you tend to feel really freakishly tall...
