The LAB is a beast when it comes to Male strippers and I will admit I am a fan of their work. They remind me of the old http://www.fanmanmag.com/site that I use to follow back in the day. The sad thing about Fanmanmag.com was not that they didn’t have attractive performers. From what I can see, they didn’t invest in web design or marketing and as a result missed an opportunity to corner the market.
Back to the Matter at hand…
The only sad part about the performers at LAB is that they only perform for women. I don’t like it but I respect it. The sad, sad truth is that my black gay community does not respect the performance art of exotic dancing as much as we should.
The truth of the matter is that we must change our mind set. We can’t keep allow the opinion that any man who performs for men and women are gay or bi. That is just not the cast.
The truth of the matter is, the heterosexual adult entertainment market is more established and supported than ours. Their performers have a more established base to work with.
Mean while, our performers are being subjugated to fingering while they work their hustle or worse yet the performers have to deal with cheap crowds. That type of foolishness is why the quality of our performers and the performers that work with our community is so limited.
All of this is based on my personal observations during the events I’ve attended. It is not my motive to discredit or defame my people. My motives lie in improving the quality and variety of our adult entertainment market.
I want to have the ability to enjoy a show like this surrounded by the cheers and comments of my gay black male community. Is that asking for too much? I’m just saying.
