Boston’s Straight Pride Parade With Milo Yiannopoulos As Grand Marshall

But according to this article, the really amusing part of this is that Milo Yiannopoulos will be the Grand Marshal. Yes. He will be the grand Marshall of the straight pride parade. You can’t make this up.

The Old Gay West Side Cruising Piers In New York
I’m not old enough to remember this, but I have older gay friends who still talk about what it was like in New York back in the days when gay men would cruise the west side piers. Apparently, it was a huge destination for gay men.

Very good article and you can read it all, here. This is the 4th in a series of excellent articles about gay culture in NYC. They deserve applause.
