There was a time when just being a gay bar was enough to draw customers, but in the 21 Century, bars and clubs like Bounce must evolve and find their place in an ever-changing cultural landscape.The history of Cleveland's gay bars and clubs By some counts, Cleveland once had as many as two dozen gay bars in the 1970s, many of them in the Warehouse District and on a stretch of St. "There used to be five or six in this area alone in the early to mid-80s," said Michael Dominguez, a manager of The Leather Stallion Saloon, a gay bar in the 2200 block of St. Dominguez said he's been frequenting Cleveland's gay bar scene since the early '80s.It closed in 2014 before reopening under new ownership.As tolerance toward homosexuality spreads, LGBT people no longer frequent gay bars and clubs in the numbers they once did, and the gay bars and clubs that remain increasingly rely on special events.CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Customers lined the bar at Bounce Nightclub on a recent Friday after watching a screening of "Ru Paul's Drag Race."
