Not The Kind Of Girl Who Gives Up Just Like That (Oh, No!) Comments (0)

Debbie Harry, one of my favorite artists since I discovered her via my cousin in the late '70s, turns 70 years old today.

Like other great chanteuses of the past, she is still touring at age 70. Unlike, say, Peggy Lee, she's not just making appearances, she's bopping around the stage and thrashing her head about, continuing to do the punk rock.

Just saw her perform this week. Hope she continues on and on.

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:

Mati Weiderpass's Delusions Of Grandeur Comments (0)

Mati-Weiderpass

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 (Guess that apology is rescinded?)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.
