Gay Bowl XVII comes to Boston Oct. 5-8, 2017

Gay Bowl XVII Boston || October 5-8, 2017

This past Saturday night, Boston’s LGBT Flag Football group announced at their annual spring awards banquet that the New England Patriots will be a sponsor of the Gay Bowl 17 and the announcement was confirmed by Outsports. 

The Gay Bowl is the national LGBT flag football tournament, put on every Columbus Day weekend by the National Gay Flag Football League (NGFFL). For more information visit the website Gay Bowl XVII.

One thing I have to say about Boston’s Flag Football group is that they know how to have a lot of fun. I always like their videos like this most recent compilation. If you would like to learn more about this Boston gay inclusive sports league, visit their Facebook page, here

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?

Daddyhunt: The Right Choice

gilead, co-pay cardWith Memorial Day Weekend starting in just a few days and the 2017 summer season starting I wanted to share this P.S.A. that Daddyhunt released recently which discusses the merits of taking PREP. While taking PREP may not be for everyone, it is something all sexually active gay men should think about.

Fenway Health ClinicTalk to your husband, your partner and your friends to help you decide what is right for you. And if you decide that you’d like to learn more about PREP or find a healthcare provider you can talk to who is near you visit, preplocator.org.

Todd Sanfield, photography, handsome, hunk, bath tubThis week I’m featuring a photographer who I’ve mentioned on this blog in the past. Kevin McDermott is a NYC-based photographer who spends a lot of time photographing beautiful men like Todd Sanfield (shown above).

Kevin first came to my attention when he collaborated with Todd Sanfield to create the book Virgin Island: Todd Sanfield by Kevin McDermott. His Instagram account is chalk-filled with men just as gorgeous as Todd.

Ogunquit 2017 summer entertainment

Earlier this week I shared the lineup of performances in Provincetown this summer. Another popular gay destination is Ogunquit, Maine.

Below are some of the shows in OGT this summer.

In addition to the shows listed below, The Front Porch provides cabaret style entertainment upstairs daily once the summer is in full swing. You can check their schedule of performers here.
