Hi Ed,

Yes. Look into Tobin Hills and King Williams area. Tobin Hills is where most of the gay bars, clubs and restaurants are located.

Weekly Texas Gay Rag found at the bars-
TWIT Magazine

19 gay bars/clubs in SA. See page 37-

What surprises me the most is that the Bonham is still listed as a gay bar.

Yup. Here's another fact about the gay community in SA. From Q San Antonio:

New statistics released by the Williams Institute at the University of California Los Angeles show that the percentage of same sex couples raising kids in San Antonio is the highest in the nation. This is the second time since 2005 that the city has achieved this ranking.

No surprise. The Bonham still caters and supports the gay community. They have several drag shows and most recently had a male porn star.

Saturday nights are mixed. You will still see men in heals and male dancers, even on Saturday. 94.1 KTFM has been broadcasting for years at San Antonio's largest gay club.

Doesn't surprise me. The community is strong and vibrant, but like the rest of San Antonio, is very family oriented as well.

Yes we sure do. If you're interested in meeting older gentleman like yourself I think the best place for you to check out is a bar called the Annex. If the bar scene is not your thing there are definitely other ways to meet gay men in San Antonio you just have to get out a little bit and network. I know there is a gay dart league, gay bowling league, all kinds of groups to join.
