I was a bartender back in the day. If you walk into a gay watering hole some happy hour and there are two leather queens chatting at the bar, chances are they're discussing a cake recipe.

David's comment makes me happy.

Marzz - Me too. I adore him - David, that is.

Peter might get hives if he read through the ITLSF posts, "Your thoughts please."

Although, ya know, there is an underlying edge to that initially trad-looking room.
Upon closer inspection, it's pretty rad.
Cheers, Alcira

Hilarious
I even visited the website.
I wonder how the look affects the business I guess not a lot with 120 something employees

Hey, at least he stands out! Stand up and be counted!!None of my gay friends now or in the past have been known to get into this kind of get-up, but.. who cares!

The very definition of silly queen.

Hence the canopy bed, somewhere to attach the sling.

Peter Marino certainly looks pitiful and depressing.

But just look at what he can do ....

Marella Agnelli's New York apartment:

Incongruous, indeed

Ps. Peter Marino didn't used to go around looking like this.

KO - Hello and welcome! If I remember correctly Marino is married - to a being with ladyparts.

I'm going to chalk it all up to a mid-life crisis of the rainbow variety. If he's happy and she's happy and the drycleaner gets paid on time, then rock on.
