A table of construction workers (gay? who knows?) laugh together with their Trans waitresses. The server, with dangling earrings, sings confidently as he/she refills the trà đá (ice tea) glasses.

Younger gays & those less well-off, who perhaps cannot afford the cost of bars and high-end coffee shops, often socialize at Saigon’s public swimming pools. Most often after work/school & on weekends. Hours of operation are mildly unpredictable, with closures at holidays, lunch hours và after 7 pm. Bring your own bathing suit, towel, and bag for checking garments & valuables. Among the pools most often noted as gay meeting sites are:
