Stonewall Sports Boston: Billiards

gay boston, gay sports

I’m pleased to let you know yet another LGBTQ club / sports team has formed here in Boston. Stonewall Sports – Boston is a chapter of Stonewall Sports that created earlier this year in 2017.  According to their website, “the group is partnering with local businesses and establishments to bring enrich the local LGBTQ community by providing social outlets through sports and activities.”

Stonewall Sports – Boston: Billiards Facebook Page

Bobby Fisher and Matt Busse who many of you may already know are the two local gay men working to make this newest league a success so if you have any questions, be sure to reach out to them. Alternatively, you can visit their website here: stonewallboston.leagueapps.com.

Stonewall Sports – Boston recently started a new billiards league. While registrations may have already closed at the time of this post, it is worth reaching out to the organizers.

TTFN Kiki Beach – See you in 2018

gay bostonI’m writing this post several weeks later than I would’ve expected but with the balmy temperatures this fall, the beach season in Boston definitely extended far beyond expectations.  I wanted to give a shout out to the mystery organizers who came up with the idea of Kiki Beach last year and have used social media to successfully reach out to Boston’s gay community to encourage them to takeover a small portion of Southie’s beachfront property each weekend.

I know some longtime Southie residents complained to the city this summer about a “new element” on M Street Beach (it resulted in more policing along this section of Southie’s beaches), but for Boston’s gay community, Kiki Beach has been a welcome addition. With the sale of the Manhunt Mansion and the demise of Ra-Cha-Cha in Randolph, Kiki appeared on the scene at exactly the right time, and I look forward to the 2018 Kiki Beach season. Below are some fun photos from this summer at Kiki Beach. If you have not yet come down to M Street Beach in Southie, put it on your to do list for next summer. It’s a blast. Just listen for the dance music that will be playing and men standing in Speedos gabbing.

Victor Corona comes to Boston this week

Calling all club kids: NYU sociologist, Victor P. Corona comes to Boston this week for a book signing at 6PM at the Newton Center Barnes & Noble on Wednesday for his book Night Class: A Downtown Memoir.

Meet this club kid turned professor and get a signed copy of  his book which dishes on meeting Lady Gaga’s old Lower East Side tribe, diving into the midnight madness of NYC’s wild hotspot, The Box, and hanging out with grown up Limelight club kids and the surviving Factory Superstars who are still shadowed by their friendship with Andy Warhol.

Then on Thursday, join Corona who will be at a party in downtown Boston with Season 9 RuPaul Drag Race contestant (and fellow Bostonian) Charlie Hides at a party hosted by the divine Dusty Moorehead at Whiskey Saigon.
