New York’s Black Party: Caligula

This is one thing no one in the heteronormative community has ever been able to straight wash, or spin. At least not the real thing. The concept of circuit parties dates back decades in gay culture, and this year happens to be the 40th anniversary of NY’s Black Party.

The oldest circuit party in the US and one of the largest of its kind in the world, The Black Party promises a night of leather, fetish, and “strange live acts” that will endure in the memories of all who attend, presuming they remember anything about the night at all.

Here’s the link to more. The theme this year is Caligula. You can read more about the history of the Black Party as well, with photos. This is not watered down Fifty Shades of Grey. This is real.

Wife Tricked Him Into Gay Sex

Here’s the story of a guy who wound up in bed with another guy, thanks to his wife. Ultimately, he wound up confused.

“My wife was a little upset; she felt I was too closed off to experimentation. But shouldn’t this kind of thing happen with lots of communication?”

You can check this out, here. I can’t comment because I’ve never understood these stories. There is no one, ever, who could talk me into having sex with a woman. Not even Alyssa Milano. 

Alyssa Milano’s Straight White Privilege On Twitter

After tweeting something else that didn’t make much sense, Alyssa Milano recently clarified her misguided intentions. It’s really called damage control, from a privileged person who doesn’t have a clue, but no one else will say that aloud. It’s also patronizing and insulting. 

Actress Alyssa Milano has apologized for a tweet in which she said she was ‘trans’, ‘lesbian’ and ‘gay’, despite identifying as straight.

I see this kind of insult all the time, always coming from straight white privilege. You can read the entire story, here. 




Amish Indiscretion by [Field, Ryan]



Discretion has never been Noah’s strong point, so he’s not totally shocked when his wealthy New York parents decide to send him away to Amish country for the summer. Although Noah believes his parents are punishing him for his wild indiscretions with men, they believe they’re teaching Noah a lesson in life that will tame him.
 
As a closeted gay Amish man filled with internal conflict, Filbert’s entire life has revolved around keeping secrets and discretion. Although he’s managed to figure out how to learn about gay culture through a part time job that gives him Internet access and a trusted best friend named Niles, he’s a 24 year old gay virgin trapped in a world that will never accept him for who he is. 

When these two very distant cousins from completely different worlds meet for the first time, Noah makes snide jokes about Filbert’s special cheese, and Filbert throws shade and sass at Noah’s promiscuity. However, as the summer progresses they discover a mutual bond that’s stronger than they’d expected. But is it strong enough to tame Noah’s wild, reckless urges and indiscretions? And is it enough to give Filbert the courage to leave his overbearing Amish mother and the only way of life he’s ever known?
