Morning View: 505 Fifth Avenue

Three years ago, when construction crews broke ground at the northeast corner of Fifth Avenue and 42nd Street, I was quite excited to see what would arise. After all, that intersection is one of the most famous in the world, and the other corners are gorgeously anchored by the Main Library and by 500 Fifth, one of my favorite buildings …

Sean Patrick Maloney

After happy hour with Aaron and RJ at Grand Central’s Cipriani, I ran into openly gay New York Attorney General candidate Sean Maloney and he was kind enough to pose for a photo. According to RJ, I now look like the “firechief of Itchboro, New Jersey”. Must be the mustache.

Hype-Casting

Nicolas Cage…as Liberace? I’m just not seeing it. Does somebody smell the hype from this year’s Oscars (Brokeback, Capote, Transamerica)? And he’s directing it himself. Oh goodie. (via – SFgate.com)

Lunch View: Main Library

I took this on the way back from lunch today. Despite what you saw in The Day After Tomorrow, the Beaux-Arts Main Library doesn’t have revolving doors, nor does it face south. The famous lions out front were named “Patience” and “Fortitude” by Mayor LaGuardia in the 1930’s, as that’s what he thought New Yorkers would need to get through …

“Christians” Outraged, Yawning Ensues

I love this. The Christianist nutjobs over at World Net Daily have got their choir robes in a twist over NBC’s having had Queer Eye cast member Carson Kressley provide color commentary during last night’s Miss Universe pageant. With the top-of-page banner headline: “Breaking News: NBC struts ‘gay’ jokes all over Miss Universe”, the lead reads: “With some of the …

HomoQuotable – George Michael

“Are you gay? No? Then fuck off! This is my culture!” -George Michael, screaming at News Of The World photographers who caught him having sex in the bushes on London’s notoriously cruisy Hampstead Heath. George isn’t wrong about park cruising being part of gay life worldwide (The Rambles, Buena Vista, Meat Rack, etc), although calling it “culture” is a bit …

Gold, Silver, Bronze, Bar Tab

Leave it to us gay homosexuals for pushing the boundries of modern sport at the just concluded Chicago Gay Games, where competitors tested the limits of their bodies in a myriad of brutal sports such as billiards, bowling, darts, air hockey, and Ms. Pac-Man. Makes sense, since so much of our life is spent in bars. And any sport that …
