Bastille Day

Bastille Day: Vive la France In lieu of my weekly “Monday Blues” post I figured I’d try something that might bring a smile to your face.  Since today is Bastille Day or as the French call it La Fête Nationale, I opted for this bit of French eye-candy.  I trust you approve.

Fur & Gold kick off party for Bear Week

Fur and GoldFur & Gold is ready for Bear Week and will host a pre-Bear Week party at Pi Alley tomorrow.

The Friday before Bear Week may well be the busiest day of the year for Pi Alley as guys from all over the country and world fly into Boston a day early so they can take the Saturday morning ferry to Provincetown for the start of Bear Week.  There is always a fun crowd at Pi Alley the Friday before Bear Week and it is worth checking out if you have no other plans.

More information about the Fur & Gold Bear Week pre-Party at Pi Alley in Downtown Crossing can be found here.

 

Colorado says “I do” to marriage equality

gay marriage colorado, same sex marriage coloradoOn Wednesday, a district court judge ruled against Colorado’s constitutional amendment banning marriage equality.

Just last week I mentioned six same sex couples had filed a federal lawsuit. I hadn’t expected that I’d be writing so soon that Colorado would become the 23rd state to have ruled in favor of marriage equality advocates in the past 12 months.

Sand Blast Weekend in Atlantic City

gay NJ, LGBT NJI will admit that I have a soft spot for New Jersey guys. I’m not sure if it is the hair, accent or guido vibe so many of them have, but if you suffer from the same affliction you may want to take a road trip to Atlantic City, New Jersey for Sand Blast Weekend, July 18-20th.  I won’t be able to check out this event but two of my friends, Cole and Hunter – The Maverick Men, will be down there this year.  If you see them tell them BosGuy says, “Hello”.

Sand Blast Weekend – Atlantic City, NJ – July 18-20th

Happily Filled

No Vacancy SignLast week when I was walking around in Ogunquit, Maine I saw this sign.  I must have been in a pervy state of mind, because I laughed out loud when I saw how The Sparhawk chooses to let people know they have no vacancy.

The marketing professional in me immediately thought of suggesting the following tagline to the Ogunquit Chamber of Commerce, Get Happily Filled in Ogunquit.

Courtney Act at Guilt on Friday, July 4th

Marriage equality makes in roads in Kentucky (and maybe Colorado)

Marriage Equality in Kentucky, same sex marriage KentuckyYesterday was not a good day for those opposed to marriage equality.  A Federal judge in the red state of Kentucky struck down the state’s 2004 marriage ban – making this the 23rd pro-marriage ruling in the past year.  Read more here.

Additionally, six same-sex couples from Colorado filed a federal lawsuit challenging their state’s ban on the freedom to marry yesterday.  Based on the Kentucky ruling (not to mention the 22 other states that have ruled the same over the past 12 months) it would seem likely that the increasingly purple state of Colorado may be on it’s way to saying “I do” to marriage equality as well.

 

 

Men’s sports uniforms ranked

mens best sports uniformsLast week the website, Jezebel, had an article that was brought to my attention called Men’s sports uniforms ranked.

Perhaps the author wrote it best,  “The World Cup has presented us with lots of excuses to gaze upon Thighlights, but are soccer uniforms really the most awesome uniforms in the sporting world?”

Check out Dodai’s compilation of the best men’s sports uniforms here.
