Kyle Szarzy, Provincetown, Ptown, CarnivalOne year ago, during Ptown’s Carnival Parade our friend Kyle took this picture of Sergio and me on Commercial Street.  Last year’s theme was the 1980s; not that you’d be able to tell from what we were wearing.

Below is a quick video I posted on Instagram of one of the 1980s themed house parties we attended before the parade.

Just checked into The Betty Ford Clinic Provincetown.

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?

Facing America’s racist present

The title of this post was intentionally a play on words and could easily have read “Facing America’s racist President”. Make of that observation what you will, but his comments regarding recent events in Charlottesville, VA are an embarrassment and more reminiscent of the 1960s than present day.

IMO President Trump’s sympathetic response to white supremacists  is not particularly surprising considering how consistently he has courted this group. What is surprising is how many people chose to either abstain from our Presidential election or voted for Trump despite his ongoing flirtations with the KKK and white supremacist leaders.

I’m left wondering if America has become so polarized that there is no line that cannot be crossed – No behavior that cannot be overlooked – No action that warrants a response: Provided those who cross that line, exhibit bad behavior or act inappropriately identify with your political philosophy. It is laughable to think most American’s claim not to identify with a political party because how easily we write off behavior (on both sides) indicates quite the opposite.

chuando, chuandoandfreyThis week on Instagram I’m featuring a profile I first saw on Unicorn Booty. ChuanDo Tan is from Singapore, a former model turned photographer who is 50 but has a body better than most 20 year old guys.

ChuanDo’s photos are a combination of flirty selfies (not all as revealing as the one above) and pictures from his photography business, Chuando & Frey, known for its edgy fashion photos. I love that Chuando’s pictures challenge stereotypes about age and race, and I think you’ll like Chuando’s washboard abs.
