According to a Queer Grrrl: Sex and Halloween AKA #GAYNYE, Part Two
Being 150% queer, I tend to get very happy around two times of the year. Pride, obviously, and Halloween. As Pride is often thought of as Gay Xmas, then it’s time we Queerio’s had a New Year’s Eve. For Oct 31st 2012, I believe we can rename and re think how we celebrate this wonderful date. I have two Twitter hashtags for you to follow: #GAYNYE and #GAYNYEToronto.
This blog gives you a few thoughts to ponder. I have pictures from last year’s Halloweek on Church Street, and Lloyd ‘Lazarus’ Warren October 31st Bash “True Halloween” at The Velvet Underground. As it is Halloween tomorrow I also threw in a few sex parties. I mean even as adults don’t we deserve to get treats?
As it happens, BOTH sex parties i wish to share with you, are at the Oasis Aqualounge located at 231 Mutual Street. If you have any questions, Toni Johnson, the owner of this fine establishment, will be more than happy to answer. Click here for her Twitter or @OasisToni
A Queer Women and Trans Bathhouse
When: October 30 at 9:00 pm until 1 November at 02:00
19 + ID required
ASL interpretation available 10 pm – 1 am
Unfortunately this event is not wheelchair accessible
Tickets at the Door : $25
Advance tickets $20
At the time of this blog’s publish, there may very well still be some tickets left at Good for Her located at 175 Harbord Street. Best to give them a call before you head over (416)-588-0900 There maybe limited sliding scale tickets available.
What makes this event unique is the collective of people who volunteer to make this experience awesome for everyone. There are orgasm specialists. Butt Play/ Fisting, Erotic Massage and Strap On just to mention a few. Here’s my voyeuristic view, expressed through a blog i wrote last year entitled: True Bath House Stories. It’s a worth a read if you have always wanted a taste of what REALLY happens. I am a true veteran of the event, and have volunteered for many years. Your favourite Cat, DJ Cozmic Cat will be spinning the tunes. This is event is NOT for cis men. (Cis refers to those whose gender identity matches their biological sex.)
When: October 31 at 11:00am until 1 November at 02:00am
Single Male: $50
BONUS for the Ladies : As this venue opens at 11 am this could be the ultimate “Spa Day with a bit of Risque” It’s FREE before 10 pm $20 after. You can stop being curious about seeing the inside of this “beautifully restored 19th century mansion.” This would be the perfect day for that “Staycation” you have been promising yourself.
Guaranteed to be the hottest event in Toronto on Oct 31st! Miss Kitty is your hostess at her “ARRRRRRRHHH! Pirates and Wenches” themed party. Halloween Costumes of all types are encouraged, even the ones that don’t require clothing. Single men, ladies and couples are welcome to enjoy the facilities such as whirl pool, steam room, sauna, dungeon, and all leather interior play area. Oasis is a bit different than some of the other sex clubs in Toronto. On Wednesday nights, single men can go to the third floor play area. He must be chaperoned by a willing female/couple. Every one is encouraged to “play nice and play naughty when invited…” Towels and lockers are included.

510 Queen St West
$5 before 11pm $10 after
doors @9pm 19+ event
Are you ready for the craziest Halloween on Queen Street West? DO you need your fix of free retro candy, and “spooktacular music” from Alternative, EBM, RETRO, and YOUR requests. Get your scariest, funniest, sexiest costumes and “join the dead and nearly dead” to dance the night away. There will be prizes for costumes and spooky decor. Last year TRUE HALLOWEEN had a packed house with so many great costumes.
Care to attend “The Largest Street Party” of it’s kind in Canada, Halloween on Church Street on Oct 31st? It is presented by the Church Wellesley Village BIA Everything kicks off at 7 pm, with a costume contest at 9:30. Here are some teaser pics from last year.
As you can see the street is packed with costumed people. There was great weather, so everyone had a great time!
Crews/Tango’s all spooked out! This was taken BEFORE the lineup to get in.
Nothing says Halloween like Jack-o-laterns.
I plan on doing my countdown for #GAYNYE just as I would Jan 31st. I hope all of you have a great week, and may it be devilishly delightful…
