What saves the Stud from being a run-of-the-mill SOMA bar is its focus on the LGBT population’s subcultures. Some Thing, the ingenious weekly drag party, draws a huge crowd by putting on two or three themed shows each Friday night. It’s a veritable who’s-who of the SF drag scene, from the nationally famous to the newbie queens lip-syncing for their lives. While the art-ravaged, the painfully hip and the only-seen-at-night spill out the door into the back alley. Furry parties, goth nights and disco rule the other nights.
