Funhouse logo Funhouse

FunHouse is a popular gay dance party at Westergasfabriek Amsterdam. The party is in a old industrial factory event hall. The venue has lockers.  Many guys leave their trousers there to wear sportswear shorts only. 

The organizers behind this party are the same as Rapido and the more techno oriented X-parties. At Funhouse the music is a little more vocal.

With the large editions the other venues of Westergas are used as well for the party. The biggest edition is during Amsterdam Gay Pride, with the enormous Gashouder, with a 5000+ capacity.

Trut

logo Trut

Very cheap underground gay party every week on Sunday in Amsterdam. Be early, as only 220 people fit in and at 22h it's usually full. From then it's one in one out.

Very strict on some (old fashioned) rules, as for example any use of mobile phones is prohibited, and you can only bring your lesbian friends but should leave the str8 ones at home.
