Here is my German dentist friend (on the right) celebrating New Year's Eve at the little gay bar around the corner from where he lives.
They are standing on the stage of a tiny theatre at the back of the bar (run by an extremely camp Dutchman) which is host to a spectacular transvestite review once a week. Thomas is a part-time D.J. when he's not pulling teeth, so I think this was a 60s disco.
I met one of the main tranny stars when I was there - a 70 year-old man who you just could not imagine dressed up as a woman. He also owns a fabulous vintage sailing ship, moored up in the nearby docks, so I guess he doesn't do the reviews for money.
My friend loves this place so much that he takes all the nursing staff there once a year for the annual celebrations. Germany's a funny place - full of contradictions.
