Get Yourself Ready To Dance with Pricilla, Queen of the Dessert.

Sometimes you just need the reminder that San Francisco shines in it’s own special way. Last week I got a chance to go to that happy place, by dropping by the Orpheum Theater for the SHN’s latest road tour of Pricilla, Queen of the Dessert.
Now – just what can you say, about a show with a somewhat large, smartly lit, four-wheeled co-star who knows how to wear a sequined stiletto heel with its own saddle! Just to see how they work the bus was worth going.

Robertson: Gay People Deliberately Spread HIV/AIDS By Cutting People With Special Rings

“You know what they do in San Francisco, some in the gay community there they want to get people so if they got the stuff they’ll have a ring, you shake hands, and the ring’s got a little thing where you cut your finger,” Robertson said. “Really. It’s that kind of vicious stuff, which would be the equivalent of murder.” – See more at:

Get Over It Cry Baby

Seems a lot of single guys have issue w/ men in open relationships. The nasty and dismissive attitude that gets included in profile content only shows one of the many reasons why I believe we need better ways to allow for all tbe sexual opportunities we have.

Last time I checked @scruffapp & @grindr wasnt a “singles only” cruise and isnt the domain of the single.

I suggest if playing with partnered men is such an issue that you put quotes about it in your profiles… maybe you might want to get over what hurt you feel was happened upon you and let it go.
