INFAMOUS LA TOILETTE AND WHY REALLY VIOLET CHACHKI WAS THROWN OUT
Yes, this monthly party is literally called THE TOILET! The party is described as queer, alternative place where art and techno coexists. This special edition was dedicated to the Paris Fashion Week, strangely happening in the gay sex club - LE DEPOT. Basically, everything sounds weird about this event - which is a very strong reason to check it out!
The looks of the people in the line to the club screamed - alternative! I’ve been to the craziest clubs and seen fetish, alternative, but this crowd is really extreme. When they all took the coats off you could see leather, piercings, alternative haircuts, topless women covered in tattoos, all the fetishes you can think of. Surprisingly a third of the guests were women (in a gay sex club). All the genders, sexualities were welcome - Violet Chachki was also not rejected to get in. But about her later…
The club is pretty big for Paris standards. The main dancefloor has a pretty big stage - jump on it if you don’t wanna dance in a sardine can. The stage is used for all the pretty interesting performances. Any spot you can find in the corners of the room, toilets, smoking area were all serving as a chill out areas - for talking, making out and much more.
The night started with the mix of pop music from the 80s. Including Boney M, Modern Talking and other bands we don’t even remember existed. Perfect start of the weirdest party ever. Surprisingly all the leather and bondage fans loved it and were dancing like crazy. Weirdest combination of the crowd and music ever.
Next, the audience enjoyed the performance by the local alternative celebrity Igor Dewe and formet porn star, now singer/performer Francois Sagat. It’s pretty hard to find words to describe it. Watch this video (but only if you’re 21+):
Finally next was the proper high quality techno music. As good as you would find in the best techno clubs in Berlin. The night finally felt right, nothing too crazy.
Downstairs is the men's play area of the club. Bouncers at the entrance were not allowing women to enter, which totally makes sense. There you could find a significantly smaller dancefloor with the terrible circuit music and adult movies on the screens - obviously totally different vibe.
Now let’s talk about that night’s scandal created by the famous amazingly beautiful RU PAUL DRAG RACE winner Violet Chachki. According to her, she was physically dragged out for not being masc enough. Just a couple rhetoric questions: If she was really thrown out for being too feminine, how did she get in the club in the first place? With a third of the crowd being women - how all of them can be ‘masc enough’ and she not?
Multiple people saw her in the sex area - actually the same bouncers let her into strictly men only area (not masc enough?). However, she and her friends were also spotted taking pictures of themselves in the play space, including on the sling. It’s pretty much known to everybody that you shouldn’t do that in the sex club and people are usually thrown out of such establishments for taking pictures. Just saying…
Basically, if you’re brave enough for the weirdest night of your life - you must go to LA TOILETTE. It’s up to you on how extreme you want your night to be. You can stay all night upstairs and dance to a great techno music (and oldies), or spend the whole night cruising downstairs, or mix both. Just don’t take pictures in the play area!
