  1. I think that what is called “normalization”, that is to say that everyone sees as something totally natural a sexual tendency or a gay couple is not having to create ghettos for gays.
    OK to openly gay places, OK to places where there are more gay people than others, but all this because they want to make it clear that in that place people with sexual tendencies other than heterosexuality are welcome, not because it is like a school only for children, in this case “only for gays” or in an exclusive center, for that there are the British private clubs where access is by invitation of one of its members and after studying that the applicant meets the qualities requested in the statutes of that club. Everything is acceptable except that the gay world itself puts up barriers or “gay-only” registration.
    We are people, that is the first thing and the second thing we must respect everyone and if someone is not comfortable in a place or place is very simple: do not come back, but by your own decision not because you are gay or straight or bisexual or blond or lame right leg …. We have already endured years and years of discrimination and it seems absurd to me that now we are the ones who think that a certain bar or a certain place or a certain person is not gay enough or too gay…


  2. The Sunday guy is something Id like to do this weekend


  3. Booze ‘n Brush does not look gay…


    • It’s not organized by a gay group (as near as I can tell) but what could be more gay then sharing drinks, while painting a male nude? It is only not gay if gay people don’t go to it. A couple of friends or group could make quite an evening of such an event. With so few bars in Boston and the lack of a neighborhood where LGBTQ+ can easily congregate we have to make our own spaces and this seems ripe for a takeover. If you’re suggesting that gays are not welcome (please let me know) but when I called Good Life they said all are welcome.

      The fact that this may be mostly attended by straight women shouldn’t count against it being a gay-oriented activity. If that’s the criteria then I should stop promoting Jacques, drag brunches and Club Cafe on the weekends.
