Had an exhausting blast covering the NYC Gay Pride March. I showed up just past noon (step-off time), talked my way through the barricades (having a big-boy camera helps) and then proceeded to shoot the entire thing, from noon until seven. I ran down the route until I caught up with the very first floats, featuring grand marshals Ian McKellen and Derek Jacobi, then worked my way back, eventually parking around 26th Street and shooting the parade as it unfolded around and past me.
In the gallery above are 40 superhot guys from the parade; they represent different types. If you recognize any of them, let them know I am—as of last week—not merely single, but husband material.
Also, I'm on Grindr.
After you get all hot and bothered by the gallery, let's starfuck, with all the stars and notable names I encountered:
Now, for the day's cutest (and in some cases hottest) couples and pairs:
What follows are my absolute favorite shots from the parade, not counting any of the hottie photos:
A couple of bulge-and-booty parting shots:
And the rest are on Facebook. Follow me there.
Mati Weiderpass and Ian Reisner should be keeping their mouths shut. Instead, Mati, at least, is still replying to people on Facebook, defiantly asserting that he did nothing wrong when he met with virulently anti-gay Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas). After he already apologized. (Guess that apology is rescinded?)
Check it out: He actually implies that the SCOTUS decision may have been influenced by his chat with Cruz (!). Cruz who is, by the way, more anti-gay than ever before.
I've seen Blondie perform live so many times at this point, I've lost track. Which is a good thing, and which is a thing I could not have dreamed (even if dreaming was free) in the late '80s, when I first got into them as a group. They were broken up and I was in Flushing, Michigan.
Now, they're not. And I'm not.
Thanks to a freebie ticket, I wound up in the old-persons' seats (great view, side loge).
Excitingly, Debbie spoke about SCOTUS, and ended their set by wrapping herself in the Gay Pride flag:
Debbie sounded great and had a sort of '6os-via-'90s bubblegum-pink dress on. She's turning 70 shortly. Hard to fathom Peggy Lee running around on the stage like Debbie, much less doing the punk rock. They played all their most essential hits and some great new-ish numbers, but I missed the first couple of songs because the geezers went on promptly at 8 p.m. It's okay, I feel I am in geezer territory myself.
Blondie was opening for Morrissey. Never been very into him. “Suedehead” (1988) might be my favorite (he did a great rendition of it two songs in), but I knew I was hoping against hope that I'd get The Smiths' “Girlfriend in a Coma” (1987). I did not.
Morrissey sounds great but without an organic love of his songs, it was a tough slog for me. I appreciated his positive remark about SCOTUS, wasn't as into his sung belief that voting just supports a corrupt system (he isn't into Bernie or Hillary, just Jon Stewart or Bill Maher) and had to look away from the extensive videos of animals being destroyed for meat as he sang “Meat Is Murder” KFC Version. I'm with him for the most part; it's unconscionable how we kill animals to eat, and I gave up eating pigs and cows long ago. But it's also just too hard to watch. That kind of thing instills in me a despair that is lasting.
The night ended oddly, with Morrissey unceremoniously removing his shirt, bowing slightly and disappearing. Lights up.
