Barack Obama gay GLobe rumors Kevin DuJan
Kevin DuJan, who is called "a prominent member of the Windy City's homosexual community" by Globe (October 1, 2012) but who is really just an infamous, sour-grapes Hillary booster who claims he can't get a date because of his politics, tells the gossip rag the same story he's been repeating for ages, that Barack Obama is "100 percent gay." With zero evidence, DuJan simply asserts that Obama used to frequent bathhouses in Chicago. (Never mind that the clubs' owner flatly states that Obama was never there.)

They Were Here Comments (2)

The AIDS Quilt has 48,000 panels and 91,000 names. For the first time in over 15 years, the entire quilt will be laid out in its entirety in public—it'll be on the mall in Washington, D.C. (Jesus, I hope it will be protected). The above project wants to photograph all of it and make it into what sounds like a fascinating app.

Img736It's only got $6,781 so far out of the $25,000 it needs. Please give if you can.

When I saw the quilt—which on my photos I referred to as "The Names Project," its official title—in October of 1990 in Chicago, I was blown away by it. So much so that it felt weird taking photos. (Considering how photo-happy I am, you must appreciate how overwhelming the experience was!)

I only snapped these two shots—one is of Chicago's artist Gabor, who I'd been aware of from the free gay weeklies, and the other (which shows a few panels) is of designer Perry Ellis's violet panel, taken because a friend of mine was obsessed with him.

The Pride Of Chicago Comments (2)

SafariScreenSnapz022Harold Washington, who many assert was secretly gay (and who died in office two years later), was the first Chicago mayor to attend a gay event

FOBC (Friend of Boy Culture) Alan Light contributes these historical photos from the 1985 Gay Pride Parade in Chicago—wow, it's been 27 years since 1985! Shocking seeing how much thinner so many of the people were, whether from lack of working out/steroids or lack of morbid obesity, both of which are more common today.

See more of Alan's vintage gay-parade photos from other cities here.


Hope you will love seeing this peek into the past as much as I did...

Holiday On Ice Comments (0)

Decided to hit an estate sale on my recent trip to Chicago, but seeing all the stuff was so depressing. An old woman or man had clearly passed away and all their stuff was going for $10 a bag. These Christmas stockings, hung with care in the basement, told the tale.
