Return of the Gay Disco

Reformatory gay activists, have faith and don't despair. Change is coming.

Sometimes even faster than imagined. Puritanical zealots might have laid serious inroads into the religious strongholds of the north but lo and behold, even they have seen fit to allow certain liberties for the more demanding, rebellious youth.

And surprisingly rather than seek greater personal freedoms, breaking the tight shackles of censorship or even demanding democratic rights, the youth obviously want to dance.

Welcome to the fabulous Islamic disco. Brilliant though shockingly progressive thinkthanks in the northern state of Kelantan have come up with revolutionary ideas that would allow the setting up of discos and nightcubs that cater only to members of the same sex without the horrifying intermingling between the sexes - and no alcohol.

A nightclub without booze ( well that sucks ) but only men. Hmmm... Seriously, would any redblooded gay boy even think of opposing such an ingeniously crafted plan? Hell, I'd be raising banners in support them if I could. Of course in such a traditional heartland, club / techno music would certainly be frowned upon - but then again, maybe some innovative young deejays would be able to work around that bureaucratic tape by splicing and dicing the booty-shaking disco music of Donna Summers, Kylie and Madonna with the dikir barat strains of local instruments. Even indecent, too-revealing Western clothing remains taboo but I doubt many of us would object to virile, dark-skinned traditionally dressed sarong party boys.

rOCK ON!
The new hotspot in town!

A provincial local government that sanctions sweaty boy-on-boy action. I doubt even Castro or West Hollywood could compare.

Who knows what they will think of next. Perhaps set up deep, verdant parks ( with plenty of leafy bushes ) in the center of the town for men to meet and exchange verbal intercourse. Maybe in a year or two, we'll even be courting the fabulously lucrative pink follar as gay cruiseships come to anchor at the ports of Kota Bharu in search of local culture. Oh yeah, and a bit of dancing.

And of course you guys know how to take this with a strong dose of sarcasm.

Too narrow minded to even realise what their words might mean. ;)

I remembered the interview of Michael Kaine on Parkinson (British talkshow)

Of how when he was shooting movie with Sean Connery (I forgot which movie but it was an old one) in Sahara desert, they went to a disco and there were only men inside dancing with each other. He said that this is not because it is a gay disco but because it is a Muslim country and women are not allowed to go out.

So the men only disco is not a new idea afterall :P

Can the Kelantan government be any more sillier than they already are?

Why not? A special attraction to the Visit Malaysia Year - include a stop over at Kota Bahru and check out the so called Islamic Sanctioned Discotheque!! What a hood?! Just to do this and have this ticked off on your holiday list of things to do in Malaysia - what an exciting thing to do!!

Speaking of boys in sarongs...I want to see a photo of Dr Paul in a sarong!

(actually, I'd settle for ANY picture of Dr Paul)

One night at the local males-only disco, an officer finds two boys engaged in indecent acts...

Officer: You boys are committing gross indecencies in public!

Boy 1: But he was walking around shirtless. And we all know that we can't blame men for not being able to control their urges. Our wise leaders say so and you wouldn't disagree with them, would you?

Officer: Erm... ok. Then you! Why are you walking around shirtless and arousing your fellow patrons?!

Boy 2: There's no law against that. Only girls are required to cover up.

Officer: Oh. Erm... You are loitering in an immoral place!

Boy 1: But the government wanted this kind of place opened.

Boy 2: We wouldn't be here otherwise, doing this sort of thing -bats innocent doe eyes-

Officer: Oh. Right. Yes. Never mind then. Erm. Carry on.

So, let me get this straight. The government has sanctioned all male discos, where the body only has to be covered from the navel to the knees. Hmmm. Sounds like a recipe for fun! One could be drunk before one enters. :) Hot sweaty, shirtless men, dancing feverishly. :P Geez, I'd Wear a burka just to get a glimpse.

Gay Disco at Newcastle (Kota Bahru). Nice. They sure do know how to fish for the pink vote. Then we can get all-male shopping malls, cinemas, buses, etc.... Wow, what a gay utopia concept from such previously-misunderstood party!

A pink vote for the Green party. :P

Erik said...
