Facehook

About 500 of you lovely folks have loaded your mug into my Reader’s Photos thingy in the sidebar. Cool! Keep ’em coming and keep the photos safe-for-work, por favor.

Buck In The Box

Last night the lovely Manhattan Offender and I went down the The Box, a beautiful new/vintage theatre/nightclub in the Bowery, for a screening of Schwarztwald: Rites XXVII, filmmaker Richard Kimmel’s fascinating part-fantasy, part-documentary about NYC’s immortal Black Party.

Check out his March Gayness, a take on basketball’s NCAA March Madness, in which Matt has created a 64-blog playoff system where …

Magicially Queerlicious

ABOVE: Irish Queers member JF Mulligan sets up. (Embiggen to read the banner.) Forget “Erin Go Bragh”, the real chant of today’s NYC St. Patrick’s Day Parade was “Queers can march in Dublin! Queers can march in Cork! Why can’t queers march in New York?” Or at least that was the favored chant in the Queer Corral, which is what …
