Gaiety, We Hardley Knew Ye.


Upon hearing that the Gaiety closed its doors (due to the building being demolished) I, as many others here in the city, wondered "where were we gonna go now?" 

Well don't dispair! One of my trusty partners in crime has come up with a nifty, yet temporary replacement (until the Gaiety finds a new venue).  Time Square Hunks is an all male revue that looks very promising (see hotness above).  One catch though...it's for ladies only!  RATS

Ok, so boys are allowed, but only if they bring two girls with them.  That's doable right?  So boys...collect your hags (and your dollar bills) and take thee to Time Square Hunks!  Pronto!!

Your Life

To echo Andy's post regarding living wills and the lesson we have learned from the Schiavo case, take time to talk to your family about your wishes and as Andy says, "get a living will!".

Work The Runway Sweetie!

Miss_j_2 Sashay Shantay - Top Model's runway diva extraordinaire dishes to Out.com about his celeb status, how straight boys react to him when they approach him, and why he's worth it.  "I don’t need to shoot every day and it costs money to have my black ass on the set every day. Every time the camera comes near me, it’s “catching.” So they make sure that Miss J. is only there when need be!

Mighty Real

Glamorous Life - Sylvester In his new biography of the man, "The Fabulous Sylvester: The Legend, The Music, The Seventies In San Francisco"author Joshua Gamson carefully paints the shifting social tapestry into his subject's life story without ever taking Sylvester out of the foreground. The sociology instead only serves as a rich, poignant backdrop for a wonderfully human story about a young man who dreamed big and lived as large as he dreamed. via sfgate.com

Sister Madge?

A4_2 Nunsense - Madge...er Esther and husband Guy Ritchie attended a party to celebrate the Jewish holiday of Purim at London's Kabbalah Centre last Thursday.  But according to reports, her Madgeness showed up dressed as a holy sister while husband Guy sported a priest outfit.  Outraged members of the American Catholic League claim the two stars should be beaten by a real life priest and nun for desecrating the scared attire.  What ever happened to turn the other cheek?  via femalefirst.co.uk

Reynold's Rap


A Star Is Bombed - This week's HX has a hilarious down and dirty interview with everyone's favorite Payless Shoe hooker hocker.  Well, sort of.  It's truly a mock-interview, held at Splash bar no less. 


Q: So you don’t think it’s wrong to kill animals purely for fashion?

A: It’s wrong not to kill animals. That’s part of God’s plan. He wants me to look gorgeous. If He didn’t, He wouldn’t have saved me from the tsunami. Animals are here for us to use as we need. Run your skin across a luxurious fur and you’ll understand. Not only does fur look fabulous, it feels fabulous. I love it so much, I’m designing an entire line of fur products.

Q: Can you give us some details?

A: I don’t see why anything that I have to touch couldn’t be lined with fur. Like pillows and sheets. Cell phones. Steak knives. My chair on The View. The microphone I use on the red carpet. I’m sure everyone would want me to feel comfortable and look good. Oh, and Kentucky Fried Chicken is working on a fur-lined bucket.

Q: A fur-lined bucket of chicken? That sounds messy.

A: Don’t be an idiot. The fur goes on the outside, of course. I’m going to call the entire line “Look Like a Star.” Martha Stewart had the great idea to make her products available to the masses. So my line will be sold at Wal-Mart. They sell guns, so their shoppers understand that animals should be shot. By the way, I need another cocktail.

The Art on The Wall


A british artist named Banksy, has managed to do what for many artists may take years to accomplish, if they are lucky.  He has had his art displayed on four of the major museums here in NYC.  Nevermind that the curators had no idea who he was, had no records of him or that he put the art up on the walls himself!

  • Santa Fe Gays Weary After Hate Crime Attack - Second only to San Francisco in the percentage of same-sex households, Santa Fe, population 62,000, promotes itself as a vacation spot for gays, and a pride celebration fills the Spanish-style plaza each summer. A retirement village to open next year trumpets itself as the only such place in the nation catering mainly to gay retirees. via abcnews.com

The most interesting and disturbing part of this story is that among the assailants who attacked James Mateas and his companion, was a 17 year old on probation for raping a 4 year old boy.  Where is the outrage and disgust there?

History of The Parade


If you're in NYC today, chances are that you are heading over to 5th Ave to snag a nice spot to view the parade.  Yes, the 244th St. Patrick's Day Parade!  But do you know how it all began?  Well, here's a little lesson lads and lassies!

The first St. Patrick's Day parade took place not in Ireland, but in the United States. Irish soldiers serving in the English military marched through New York City on March 17, 1762. Along with their music, the parade helped the soldiers to reconnect with their Irish roots, as well as fellow Irishmen serving in the English army. Read more about it here. via thehistorychannel.com

In addition, National Geographic has rustled up other facts related to St. Patrick's Day festivities.  For example:

Did you know?

  • In the United States, it's customary to wear green on St. Patrick's Day. But in Ireland the color was long considered to be unlucky, says Bridget Haggerty, author of 'The Traditional Irish Wedding' and the Irish Culture and Customs Web site.  Irish folklore holds that green is the favorite color of the Good People (the proper name for faeries). They are likely to steal people, especially children, who wear the shade too much.

  • By law, pubs in Ireland were closed on St. Patrick's Day, a national religious holiday, as recently as the 1970s.

        Read more fun facts here.

  • Gay Liason To D.C. Mayor Found Murdered - Wanda R. Alston was a longtime activist. She had served as co-chair of the DC Coalition of Black Lesbians, Gay Men & Bisexuals. She also worked at the Human Rights Campaign as an events manager and later went on to establish a political consulting firm, Alston Consulting Services, Inc. Via 365gay.com

Gay Jews Remembered in New Israeli Holocaust Museum - "Jews indeed were not the only victims of the Nazi regime, but they were the only group that it aspired to completely wipe out. It is clear that in dealing with the Holocaust we also touch on its contexts and related areas, among them the subject of other victims of the regime. Accordingly, the new museum will present the subject of other victims, including homosexual victims, of the Nazi regime, in a relevant place." via 365gay.com

Gay Pride on Phuket Lives On!


Phuket Pride Still Strong - Tsunami ravaged Patong Beach is lively once again with umbrellas lined on the beach and with the return of tourists.  You might never know that only a few months earlier it had been hit by one of the worst tidal waves in history. 

To call the people of Thailand resiliant would be an understatement.  Among some of the things returning to this island, is its annual Phuket Gay Festival that was postponed in the aftermath of the killer tsunami. It's now scheduled for April 7 - 10. via 365gay.com

Is it me or do they seem to pop up everywhere?  The latest issue of Vogue Hommes places the arachnid on, you guessed it, the models face!  How original.  Perhaps someone at the magazine should spend a little less time watching reality television.  Are there no original ideas?

The Virginia Prison Diet


I have to say that I'm truly happy that Martha is finally free.  It was a good thing to forgo appeals, do the time, and get it over with just in time for the Spring planting. 

The New Martha, as everyone is calling her, has certainly shed some pounds and looks completely renewed walking into the private jet in her (yes, I noticed) skinny jeans and crochet-ted poncho that, I'm sure, we'll see somewhere in her magazine's "how-to" section or perhaps at K-Mart.

A message from Martha posted on her site, after the jump.

Spanish Adventures


For many latins, Spain is the mother country.  The one that gave birth to the masses of latinos and sprinkled them throughout the world. I, born of Argentinian parents, was raised with to believe in that sentiment. 
With that said, it is Spain the NYCBoys will be traveling to this April on a Thelma& Louise/Easy Rider adventure.  The roadtrip will start off in Madrid, and it will take us through the Spanish countryside to Valencia, Toledo, the coastline to Barcelona and then back north to Bilbao and the Guggenheim Museo.  We'll document the saga on this blog and let you take the ride with us.
So in keeping with the Spanish theme, it seems fitting to introduce our newest NYCBoys blog partner Spanish Adventures!.  Welcome.  Bienvenido!
