I'd been to foam parties before, but when my friend Ginger Luke said that he and his boyfriend were heading to a naked foam party in London I was intrigued. 'It's a lot of fun and above all the music is great!' he said. Ginger Luke is a connoisseur of good gay pop that you can dance to - he knows his music.
Although haunts like Blitz, Billy's, Hell and Saint Moritz might not have passed for traditional gay clubs they certainly embraced, if not driven by, gay sensibilities. This, in turn, allowed the macho boys to dress up as matinee idols and beatniks, Edwardian gentlemen and Gaucho lovers without having to worry about getting their perfectly pomaded hair messed up in a brawl.
