A few things differentiate Cruisin' 7th from other local gay bars -- a complete lack of posturing and its significant cross-dressing clientele. It's not unusual to see female illusionists and other practitioners of the drag lifestyle sporting their finest frocks at the CenPho club, whether they're participating in the Tuesday karaoke night or witnessing one of the various revues or male stripper shows that go on throughout the week. It's the kind of place where anything goes -- as long as you're respectful and play nice with others. As one regular aptly describes this "island of misfit toys," it is where anyone can feel safe and let loose, regardless of their particular kink or sexual orientation. "If you don't fit in anywhere else, you'll fit in here," as they say.
