I hardly go out with my friends because they are either too busy or just not into it. I assume you are in Northern Colorado and Boulder might be a better queer partying option. There were few other gay icons to chat about. Sweetie, you wear whatever makes you most comfortable. It was still good though because I learnt the important lesson that one must maintain a level of sobriety while alone in foreign cities and the next weekend I went to another bar and had an awesome time.
I went yesterday to my first gay night, but everyone just thought I was straight because I was with male gay friends.
Bad things happen and yet, I continued to do this many times after. He is slightly older and also identifies as heterosexual. Make friends.
Come prepared to leave when you want to.
