Lauded for their razor sharp wit and take no prisoner’s approach to political, religious, and social institutions, these Queens are ready to hit the stage at Club Café. If you loved Fresh Fruit before (or Bitter Bitch’s Golden Girls or Menopausal Mermaid), you won’t want to miss out on this hilarious song parody send up of everything you may think, but never say.
For a taste of what you might expect at the Club Cafe show, here is a video from Fresh Fruit back in the day.
It is Independence day in the USA and while I feel like our reputation has taken a hit in recent years (a self-inflicted hit at that), there is still plenty to be proud of and to celebrate so for everyone in the US and to those living abroad; have a wonderful July 4th.
50 years ago my parents said, “I do.”, and today we are celebrating 50 years of happy memories. Congratulations Mom and Dad. You’re a constant source of inspiration.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.

I think this is what is referred to as winning the genetic lottery in terms of looks. You may recognize him as this past week’s Furry Friday as well. Does anyone know who this guy is? He certainly knows how to take a picture.

Last month the NYT had an article that caught my eye and made me feel more optimistic about the future. The article, Young Voters Keep Moving to the Left on Social Issues, Republicans Included, points to how Gen-Z and Millennials are far more racially and ethnically diverse and how those differences are shaping their views the world. For example, according to a survey from Pew Research Center, 64% of Millennials believe government should play a bigger role in their lives as opposed to 49% of Boomers. Both younger generation cohorts also overwhelmingly favor social issues like same sex marriage and agree that there is systemic racism that results in Black Americans being treated unfairly. Let that sink in for a minute.
While there is no doubt that many of the views of these young men and women will evolve and change, the demographics of a more multicultural, multiracial society is changing the fabric of our society in ways that are very visible as well as in ways that we have yet to fully realize. Combine that with the knowledge that in 2019 Millennials will outnumber Baby Boomers and it makes elections moving forward far more interesting; assuming Millennials will head to the voting booth.
