Edinburgh: The Shooting Gallery, Saturday (monthly)
- ’lt’s the first club I've been to in ages where pe0ple don't take themselves seriously. People are just wanting to have fun
and there's no pretention, an' it’s just like total party and welcoming atmosphere. It's really, really nice, it's like straight and gay people alike, and everyone wants to have a good time. — 'A funny story about last time? A funny story about last time is ah can't remember it.’
