Gay Life in Kunming

Ari Robbins (1 post) • 0

Hey, I'm staying in Kunming for at least a couple of months here in Kunming, and so far love the city. After living in Beijing for a year, the greenery and the freshness are a blessing. And so far I am liking the nightlife and whatnot quite a bit. But one thing thats an interest of mine is the progress or current condition of the GBLT community in China. So far, I've been largely unable to find any central locations of gay nightlife or culture in Kunming. I know there is a bar called Lanse Didai (蓝色地带), which as of yet I haven't been to. I also heard the larger Top One Disco in Kundu was a gathering point, but I couldn't really tell from the one time I went there.

So if anyone has any insider information, shoot!

Also, if anyone has any good suggestions for other good nightlife spots, let me know.

not much of a gay nightlife in Kunming. Besides Bluezone, which is rather a depressing place than a fun bar to how out, there's nothing else that I'm aware of.
Personally, as a gay foreigner living in Kunming for the past 2,5 years, I would recommend you to hang out in regular expat bars, namely French cafe, the box, Salvador's (Wenlinjie area), or speakeasy, the hump and halfway house for more late nite fun. the small foreign gay community (around 5 or 6) hang out there.
besides that, if you're more fond of Chinese gay community, plenty of discos in Kundu are packed with Chinese gay kids (you can spot them from miles away...).
contact me if you need more info

www.yntz.net is another source - if your chinese is up to it. I believe a lot of contact is made on the net - primarily via QQ. but I have to say, setting up a QQ account was an impenetrable barrier for me.

I'm living here with two other overeeas gay friends (been her for a year) and we have gradually made a few gay friends in the local community.
