Stella Restaurant to be reborn as a food truck

Stella Boston, Evan DelutyThe popular South End restaurant, that closed in May could be reborn (sort of). reported yesterday that the owner of Stella Restaurant on Washington Street (shown above), Evan Deluty, will be setting up a truck called Stella Express in Southie at the corner of West Broadway and B Street –  near the Broadway T station.

Apparently the new food truck will offer favorites from the old Stella menu and if all goes as planned, Stella Express will debut on August 18. But what I want to know is where will be the bar?

Nice White Parents

I love podcasts. The format (when done correctly) is similar to story hour and the people over at Serial Productions are better at this than most. I’ve written about Serial in the past so when their latest podcast series, “Nice White Parents” was announced a couple of weeks ago I was interested.

This latest production looks at the 60-year relationship between white parents and the public school down the block — in this case in Brooklyn. The podcast asks why after decades of school reform, do so many inequities still exist? Reporter, Chana Joffe-Walt, looked at inequality in education and deduced that most reforms focused on who schools were failing: Black and brown kids, but rarely addressed who the schools are serving. The five-part series, focuses on what is arguably the most powerful force in our schools, white parents.

I’ve only had the chance to listen to the first episode, but I’m already hooked.

Adam & Andy will return with new material shortly but in the meanwhile here’s a classic episode from last summer, that still makes me chuckle.

Movie night suggestions

Despite having what seems like an endless selection of movies to choose from on Amazon and Netflix, sometimes it takes us all night to find something to watch.  Below are three gay-thmed movies we’ve recently watched and enjoyed. If you have any movie suggestions, please share them in the comments section.


PRIDE was releasaed in 2014 and is the true story of how in 1984 a rag tag group of  gay activists built a seemingly impossible bridge of friendship with a Welsh coal mining community, who were engaged in a nasty strike with Margaret Thatcher’s government. The unlikely allies have to get over their mistrust of each other but ultimately recognize and bond over how society has marginalized and bullied both communities. Coming together they make news and help each other. Both Sergio and I teared up watching this movie.

Before the Fall

Before the Fall was released in 2017 and is loosely based upon the classic Pride and Prejudice. The acting in this melancholic movie is sometimes uneven but the story about the antagonistic relationship between the gay, affluent and arrogant attorney and the dejected, down-on-his-luck factory welder drew Sergio and me in. The movie which takes place in rural Virginia, features some spectacular views and gets two thumbs up from Sergio and me.

holding the man

Holding the Man is a 2015 Australian romantic drama film adapted from Timothy Conigrave’s 1995 memoir of the same name – a book I reviewed back in 2010. The story opens in the mid 1970s in Melbourne where Tim and John fall in love while teenagers at their all-boys high school. Their romance endured for 15 years and is an emotional rollercoaster. Just as I said in my book review ten years ago, their story is very touching and it really touched my heart.  Definitely a must see despite the heavy nature and content of the film.

Vintage gay

Any thoughts on when this photo may have been taken? These two young men (boyfriends?) look handsome as they pose and smile for the photo. This is one of more than forty photos of gay couples that was published by Gayety in May 2019.

I dedicate this weekly post, featuring vintage gay photographs, to the men and women who lived in a more critical time where being true to yourself and loving who you want wasn’t always an option and came at a great price. Do you have a photo you would like to share? Email me at

This week on Instagram: titaniusmaximus

I don’t know much about this Instagram hunk who has more than 65k followers other than the fact that he is a vegan and has a great body.

As one might expect, the majority of Mr. Maximus’ account is filled with shirtless selfies and photos of him in flirtatious poses. The account is definitely for anyone who is looking to up their ‘man candy’ quotient.

You can follow this week’s featured account on Instagram here, and you can check out previously featured IG accounts here.
