George Santos Booted Out Of Congress For Brazen Criminality Comments (0)

Rep. George Santos (R-New York) is gone.

Santos, in a historic vote, has been expelled from Congress by a 311-114 vote.

I want you to think about all the low-down, no-good, dirty, corrupt assholes who have served in the United States Congress, from the time of slavery to now — and only 20 have ever been expelled.

Most of those were in the Senate in the 1860s for being Confederate goons. Nobody has been expelled from Congress in over 20 years, and only six have ever been expelled from the House (which has hundreds of seats up for grabs every two years).

So Kitara was really that bad.

Santos on his way out:

To hell with this place.

Next stop: Federal prison.

Les Hommes, NYC's Premier & Oldest Gay Adult Store On The Upper West Side, To Shutter Comments (0)

I am hearing word that Les Hommes (217-B W. 80th St., 2nd Fl., NYC), the last gay adult store on the UWS of NYC — one which has been operating since 1979 — will soon close.

The building has been sold, and the business is expected to shutter by early January.

If you've never been, it's an experience. And it used to be even more so, before laws were enacted necessitating that most of the merch be non-adult in nature. That led to a gay sex shop turning into your one-stop-shopping for old VHS and DVD copies of movies that perhaps haven't hit streaming yet.

Gay male spaces continue to dwindle — for lack of demand? Because of the changing ways in which gay men seek and have sex? Regardless, Les Hommes is about to go the way of the Unicorn. (Literally — the Unicorn, its brother store, closed in Chelsea several years back.)

Gerry Geddes Releases Memoir DIDN'T I EVER TELL YOU THIS? Comments (0)

I had the pleasure, last year, of seeing Gerry Geddes in action, reading from his then-unpublished memoir about his life as a gay man in NYC from the '60s on.

I sought him out because he wrote for Torso for years, and I was in the process of compiling my extensive oral history of that and the other Mavety magazines (coming in 2024, finally).

He is so witty and perceptive, and knows so much about LGBTQ+ life in NYC, his book Didn't I Ever Tell You This? is sure to be juicy reading. Here is how it's described:

Arriving at Columbia University in New York City in 1967, Gerry Geddes found himself in the throes of a political, cultural, social, and sexual revolution beyond his wildest imaginings. Against a backdrop of the anti-Vietnam War movement at its most intense, the cultural upheaval of the fight for racial, gender and sexual equality, the sexual revolution exploding all around him,the vibrant theatrical and musical scene of the late 20thCentury, and the tragedy and horror of the AIDS epidemic, a love story unfolds. a love story of a romantic, 20-year partnership cut short by a deadly disease, of a gay man thriving in the worlds of performance and entertainment that opened up for him in his adopted home, and of the lasting affection he feels for the city itself – the city that formed and changed his life in unexpected and lasting ways. It is a tale bursting with humor and pain and passion and history told in a voice that is funny and touching and powerful, and uniquely his own.

It's out now here.
