Welcome to NAAP. The Premier Arab-American Network.
Walsh questions the effect of this 'mainstreaming' of LGBT culture: Having lived through many of them, Walsh is acutely aware of changes to the scene that have occurred over time. Although he cites "changing tastes and fashions, different platforms for socialisation like dating apps" as those most evident today, the question remains as to whether or not these are actually having a tangible impact.
Skeptical of any sweeping changes, he dismisses marriage equality and the rise of apps like Grindr as really impacting LGBT nightlife. Cashman considers taste and its cyclical nature to be the most salient explanation.

Citing the Dragon, the Dublin bar which closed in , as an example, Cashman says: The Dragon did what it was meant to do. It went away and something else took its place. One place closing will spur someone on to start something else. Although she agrees that there is a cyclical nature to LGBT nightlife, she has noticed something of a 'Grindr effect': That's why it's important for venues to offer more than just drinks and background music.

Despite this, Devine does not envisage a similar fate here: Irish people are very social and love having the craic. You can arrange for people to come over to your house but that is not a club experience - that's dancing around your living room. Anyone who imagines otherwise is deluded.
Beyond Dublin, Cork native Aaron Blake 23 , who is studying in Limerick, has experience of both scenes, each of which he considers underdeveloped: Spinning this positively, he adds: Blake describes how Chambers, Cork's flagship LGBT venue, has been criticised for an increase in straight clientele, threatening to delegitimise its status as a sanctuary for the community. He considers it plausible that this interest may stem from the marriage referendum. In Dublin, Devine agrees: While it may be too early for consensus on the impact of dating apps and marriage equality on LGBT nightlife, it has also been affected by tensions within the community itself.
Ellen Tannam 25 , a bisexual writer, considers mainstream nights as catering "to the 'Ls' and 'Gs', with other members of the LGBT community often overlooked".

LGBT bars, they agree, are predominantly bars for gay men. Tannam and Devine point out that this may be a reflection of the greater spending power of gay, cisgender men those whose gender corresponds with their birth sex , as gendered inequities in pay persist, regardless of sexuality.
