I am headed to Goa in a week or two and I know that there is not much gay scene in India outside of the Voodoo Bar in Mumbai, but I thought that maybe since Goa is such a hot destination for Westerners there might be a bit more of a gay presence there. Does anybody know if there are any bars or nightspots with any sort of gay scene, or what the prevalent attitude is there? Thanks!

Alternately, if anyone knows any gay-friendly spots in Kerala or Rajastan that would be cool too...

I beg to differ!! There's an enormous and growing scene in Bombay that has NOTHING to do with Voodoo's. Start here:

There's so much going on, so much to do, you won't believe it. Foreigners are welcome (and often seen) at their events, by the way.

In Goa you'll not find much in the way of an idigenous gay scene, but you can check out

hello

leave me a message if you get to goa within the next couple of weeks. I wanted to go and check out this eden place but not alone would feel too much like a sad o cruising. I was talking to a local gay guy today and he says that Eden is the only place in Goa at present. I am looking to go to Dehli agra and the punjab if you are interested. I
life is very suprising.

Hi there. I am travelling to Goa at the same time. This will be my first time in India. I'll be there with my best mate. We're two Australian guys, both aged 35. I'd appreciate any feedback you can offer on clean, cheap, friendly places to stay. Perhaps drop me an email - terencestuart@hotmail.com

Cheers

Terry

Not much specific for gays here, even less so for girls.

Presa di Goa a hotel & restaurant in Nagoa (www.presadigoa.com, 7 minute drive from Calungute) is definitly not an only-gay place but sees a good number of gays, especially on Thursday nights when Clodaine sings.
