Love In The Age Of Trump: 2018 NYC Gay Pride March Comments (0)

IMG_0552_newI set up this shot of the Top 4 Season 10 RDR girls — #pride (All images by Matthew Rettenmund)

The 2018 NYC Gay Pride March was exhausting as hell, but I made it out alive and with some great pictures I'm happy to share, as always.

Follow Me on Instagram HERE!

IMG_9876_newHe works out ...

I had to arrive at 10:30 a.m. as part of the amfAR crew, only to find they had no size L shirts — and they weren't black this year, but rainbow colors.

Rainbow colors are great, except they show sweat, and it was 88 degrees and partly sunny, gulp. Basically, it was tit-sweat pride for me all the way.

IMG_9721_newKenita Placide was clearly super honored to be a marshal, judging by her smile and her kind words.

IMG_9721_newRepresenting Lambda Legal
IMG_9721_newI think poor agender advocate Tyler Ford was sick, but the them editor gave me a quick pic anyway.

I immediately began weaving throughout the streets in Chelsea (new route this year) in search of celebs and other fun photo subjects. Just when I was about to give up, I was served Billie Jean King, living legend and one of the march's four grand marshals, the others being Lambda Legal as an entity, trans activist Tyler Ford and OutRight Action International's Caribbean-based advisor/exec director of ECADE, Kenita Placide.

Screen Shot 2018-06-25 at 10.03.58 AMTheir Pride was at a hole 'nother level ...

Feeling better about grabbing the biggest star of the show, I quickly located RuPaul's Drag Race alums Dusty Ray Bottoms, Miz Cracker, and Season 10's Top 4. Everyone looked stunning, especially my favorite, Aquaria, to whom I pantomimed that I love her the most, eliciting a sweet thanks.

IMG_9966_new_newGrindr Tribe: Yes! Yes! Yes!

I was trying to meet up with an actor who might be a match for Boy Culture: The Series, but kept failing. In the meantime, I encountered dreamy Internet personalities Max Emerson & Andrés Camilo, and then found nirvana with Alexander Wang's Trojan condoms-themed float, whose slogan was PROTECT YOUR WANG. My good friend is obsessed with Wang, and when I texted him a candid of the designer, he texted me back FUCK. YOU. 

GiphyThis model was flawless!

Wang was sweet, posing for me, and was gen in providing the parade's sexiest coterie of rump-shaking go-go men, including one with whom I became embarrassingly obsessed. He worked that crowd shamelessly, and I allowed myself to be worked shamelessly right along with it. I'm a sucker for ... well, in this case, I guess I'm just a sucker.

IMG_0434_newWang's models were beyond beautiful.

The bummer about Wang was that even though I took tons of pics and helped get the attention of a woman he was trying to flag down, I was flatly denied my only request — one of the parade shirts they were tossing out. My friend would have loved one, but when I asked the woman she said no as if I'd casually asked her to remove her tampon for me to smoke. Another guy gave me a similarly flat no, and their excuse was the shirts had to be thrown to the crowds, not handed to anyone. Except, of course, all the dancers' friends. Whatever. It was the only uncheerful moment of any Pride day I can remember in years.

IMG_0232_newThese two melted my heart, especially when the one on the left waved her tiny flag for me.

Keep reading for over 200 pictures from the march. I missed Lady Gaga (who popped out of an SUV for 20 seconds, unannounced) and the politicians (Cynthia Nixon and Andrew Cuomo and Bill de Blasio, most notably), but I got everyone else as well as a sunburn for the ages ...

33rd & Abramov Lex: Inside UNCOVERED Comments (0)

IMG_9527(All images by Matthew Rettenmund)

My buddy Greg alerted me to a gallery exhibition for Uncovered, the photo essay with a story by Alexander Abramov and shot by Dmitry Bocharov, an event to celebrate the publication of Vol. 1 (“Wrangler”) and Vol. 2 (“Mercenary”).

IMG_9482

The images represent a total of five days worth of work, but look like the two spent months together in the desert.

Bocharov was a cherubic sweetheart and Abramov was very polite and shy as we corralled him for photos.

IMG_9433

Great crowd at Pennsy (33rd & 7th) in NYC, and Bocharov is selling prints from $250 — with a percentage of the money going to benefit the Russian LGBT Network.

Rough Footage: Touring Folsom Street East XXI: S.L.U.T.S. Comments (0)

IMG_8355***_new(All images by Matthew Rettenmund)

Spent an enjoyable Father's Day surrounded by daddies ... and boys, slaves, pups, IMG_8403***_newbears, otters, sluts, pigs, toilets, and others in the kink community at Folsom Street East XXI: S.L.U.T.S.

To be honest, I'm not in synch with the mindset — I think I feel more at home at Comic Con, and I don't like superhero stuff! — but there are always beautiful and interesting sights, there's always sense of a communal bond, and I can't resist a fun photo op.

I wouldn't submit to a whipping, but I saw lots of men and boys who could have me 'whipped in no time flat.

Funniest moment: Lesbian singer taking the stage to announce she wants to sing a sad song because she thinks the kink community can take the feels, shouting, Who's been disappointed?! — read the room, lady!
