Lesbique on Monday’s!

After the very first edition of “LESBIQUE on Monday’s!” at the Spijker Bar, is now comes overy once a week on Monday evening. An evening for lesbians, gays, and freaks. Initiator Rosanne Bakker Schut (25), known as DJ Sleeping Beauty in the Amsterdam scene, was missing a place where all genders and identities are welcome on weekdays.

After previous editions under “FLIKKER” in 2015, she sought a bar where different groups could mix. She found what she was looking for in the Spijker Bar. A Monday night with mostly female DJs, a game of pool or pinball, getting over your De Trut hangover, or just grabbing a beer after work. She was pleased to see this worked well with the regular bar flies of the Spijker Bar.

That first evening, the bar was filled to the brim. While listening to great music, the regular pool players of the Spijker Bar got the ladies from the smoker’s room upstairs for their turn to play. When asked why this evening and why Spijker Bar, the answers are unanimous. “We like to mix,” a tough dyke and her trans-man friend tell, “and the Spijker Bar is a tough bar.” Mixing at the bar is no problem. Everywhere you look people laugh, talk, and play together, and on the screens above the bar both gay and lesbian porn is played.

Owner Paul Tarrant: “The Spijker Bar has been serving the gay community since 1978 and this is the community.” Perhaps “LESBIQUE” will grow into larger festival editions, but this Monday is already well-established.
