Cool bar art in the patio of the SF Eagle. Paint on plywood. Big! The Texan has fun with them. That’s ex-Texan, meaning from Texas and the operative word is FROM. The artist is Webster, 1998 vintage. In the style of that Finnish guy, Tom.

The current reigning Empress of San Francisco – Patty McGroin, a small-town girl made good! She spoke at the funeral. We said “hello” to her highness, a son of a local political family, and told her where we were from. She replied “Oh! I’ve heard about your parties…and the mud pit!!” Cool. We are also known as “the faggots south of town.” No contest!

A veteran, a politician, and a drag queen. Jose was all of these, and there were many of all at his celebration of life.

San Francisco Pride Leather Marshall Steve Gaynes at The 15 Association’s beer bust at the SF Eagle. Gaynes will be pulled by a human pony in a cart up Market Street, heading up the Leather contingent at what promises to be the biggest, most festive Pride ever. You know why! This is the year to march. Gaynes is a local businessman, active in the community, a fraternal member of The 15, husband of artist Richard Bolingbroke, and Dad to a few lucky boys. A well-deserved honor!

Japanese Game Show: Acrobatic Ball Sac Thwackage!

JapanBallPunish copy
From a Japanese TV game show: competitive acrobatic testicle-whacking for fun and profit. Not actually gay in its cultural context, certainly it is homoerotic to our quirky eyes. Via 15 Association Fraternal JB. Thanks! Dedicated to Big Gay Al, who digs this kind of thing. Don’tcha, Al? Thwack! For the video clip of these guys in action, click here. Translation of text in upper left? More context? It would be much appreciated!
