No Rainbow flags, just one colourful strip that could easily be overlooked at the door. It’s not all about performative presence. Prague’s LGBTQ+ community seems to be an integral part of the day and night life. Even though opinions on LGBTQ+ people’s presence in public differ among the population, the community contributes to Prague’s nightlife with it’s countless bars and nightclubs in district Prague 2. In this district, it’s not only about being LGBTQ+ – straight people are just as welcome as LGBTQ+ persons. This is one of the bars where people of all orientations can mix.
The bar may seem invisible but as … says “we’re just like any other bar. We don’t need a flag to differentiate or suggest the types of people that can come here. Everybody’s welcome.”
The saints/ sinners: an unusual name for a gay bar.
“No I don’t know what that logo means, is it like a satanic cult?”
Is the drawing supposed to be a mockery of the gay bar?
As the night sets, you don’t have to hide away …

Prague’s gay area: a normal visibility for the LGBTQ+ community.
Seriously: Get over it.
