Team Steam: Gay Bathhouses Mainstreaming? Comments (0)

So gay (not LGBT!) bathhouses are rebranding and becoming cool again. Check out Frank Melleno's (Work Unfriendly) Polaroids from The Fairoaks Hotel bathhouse in San Francisco Continental_flyer.jpg.CROP.article250-medium.jpg1978 to get an idea of what most people think of when they think of bathhouses.

According to Hawpost:

At its prime, bathhouses were cool because of their popularity among gay, bi and closeted men. There used to be somewhat of a beauty competition on who was allowed to enter these establishments. Sort of like the lines at the hottest nightclub in town where bouncers let in the most gorgeous and stunning people as others get left behind. The 75 year-old president of the North American Bathhouse Association also known as NABA, Dennis Holding recalls his experience of this in the 1970s:

“There was a club in LA called The 8709. It was on the second floor. In its day, there would be a line down the stairs to the street, and you’d wait and you’d climb all the way up, and if the attendant didn’t like your looks he wouldn’t let you in. I got rejected there once, but I got let in three or four times, and I remember the process quite well. But if they thought you weren’t attractive enough they wouldn’t let you in.”

At the height of their success, there were about 700 bathhouses operating throughout the country in the late 1980s. Today that number is down to a merely 60 in operation!

“The acceptance of gays has changed the whole world,” Dennis Holding, who owns a small bathhouse in Miami told the AP. “It’s taken away the need to sneak around places like these and today, you can go to the supermarket, launch your Grindr app and hook-up.”

Yes technology and social media have changed the rules of the game but technology will never be able to replace the safe and comfortable environment that the baths have to offer. At least not yet. Although Grindr can connect you with guys you MIGHT think look like their profile pictures, it doesn’t give you an easy option to walk away once you meet the guy for the first time.

I've actually never been inside a bathhouse. Am I missing out?

 
Little Pricks: Steve Grand Tackles Objectification Issue Comments (0)

Steve Grand addresses that time last summer when he was a little annoyed with gay blogs using and re-using his old Speedo photos, but makes clear he has NO problem being objectified. He never said don't objectify him. He's still talking about it mainly because people still snarkily bring up that he's the guy who shows skin and complains about showing skin (which he's not).

“I've learned how to take much more than that” would be a good sound byte for a dirty Steve Grand audio file.

Keep reading for his take on the issue of flaunting your body as a gay male artist vs. as a straight female artist ...

People Are Mad That The Super Bowl Halftime Show Was Pro-Gay Comments (0)

Super-Bowl-Halftime-Show-Beyonce-Coldplay-Bruno-MarsVideo still via CBS

According to LGBTQ Nation, some viewers were mad at what they perceived to be a pro-gay slant to the Super Bowl halftime show.

Sample grouch (a young guy, BTW): 

Guessing he's not a Berniebro.

The same user complained that because he experienced pushback to his comment, that means he has lost the right to express his point of view. Nope. But you never had the right to express it with impunity. Other people retain their right to express their point of view that your point of view is bigoted and lame.

Take 2: Kareem Davis & Joseph Kibler Cover PLUS Magazine Comments (0)

Kareem-Davis-Joseph-Kibler-Plus-Magazine-HIVCovers via Plus Magazine

The Prancing Elites star Kareem Davis—diagnosed as HIV positive at age 23—is on one of the March/April 2016 covers of Plus Magazine. In the feature, Kareem says this of coming out on the show:

At first I thought I would face more judgment, but I have actually had people show more respect than anything. People are definitely more excited when they see me [because] I’m an individual that shared such a profound story and I am still doing this whole jazz of the Prancing Elites while maintaining my health at the same time… I’m grateful that it went in a positive direction.

Joseph Kibler, an activist-turned-actor (Re-Casting Kyle, CSI: Cyber) who was born HIV positive, has the other cover. He says being marginalized (both as a person with disabilities and as a person with HIV) has made him a better person:

Whether or not we want to admit it, being marginalized, placed in a box where we are told what we can and can’t do, is actually the best thing that could ever happen to us. We are constantly being challenged. We have to push back and fight for every little thing we have. Every inch of success feels like yards. So if you don’t know what it’s like to be discriminated against, talked down to, been told no, then you’re missing out on the most rewarding experience of proving every single one of them wrong.

Coming to DVD and VOD via Wolfe Video on March 8, 2016, is You're Killing Me, a gay horror film directed by Jim Hansen and co-written by Hansen and Jeffery Self. The cast includes Matthew McKelligon, Jeffery Self, Drew Droege, Mindy Cohn and Edi Patterson.

The movie is described as being about “a narcissistic wannabe Internet star” (Self) who is dating “a monotone serial killer” (McKelligon). I'm thinking a lot of people are gonna die in this, but maybe you'll die laughing as it seems this is more intentionally camp than Friday the 13th summer camp.

Trailer is after the jump ...
