I was interested to see the wildly-popular revival of Hair on Broadway because I think the gay and hippie movements are intertwined, as both really got started in the late 60s. While the history of the gay rights movement links the Stonewall Riots to the death of Judy Garland, as they happened during the week of her funeral, to me it's always seemed like the culture was already shifting sexually, spiritually and culturally in ways that demanded that homosexuality express itself more naturally.
In the 40-odd years that have passed since Hair first played Broadway, hippies have become a bit of a cultural joke, but a lot of their legacy is still with us: the sexual revolution (including LGBT acceptance), health food, drug culture, expanding consciousness in other ways such as eastern religions, and of course, the music.
So, it is interesting to see Hair through that lens in its current revival, as a snapshot of a huge cultural shift. Of course, if you could care less about any of that, you'd still be in luck, since it's just a fun time capsule of a show brought expertly to life with an exuberant young cast.

When I put "Newcastle" on, I figured the worst case scenario would be seeing hot surfer guys with not much else going on. And that's exactly what happened.
I don't want to give this much of a review, because this is one of those bait-and-switch gay movies, where it's marketed to gay audiences, on a gay DVD label, there's a bunch of hot guys on the cover, and… nothing much gay happens. If you mistimed a bathroom break, you'd miss the closest thing to a gay scene. And the gay scene there is seems to opt for a much different perspective than the well-lit, prolonged scenes given to the heterosexual sex scenes.
Sure, there's a lot of amazingly hot guys, many of whom run around and swim naked. But, really it isn't enough.
I came out to my cat this morning before I left for work.
I highly suspect he was on to me for sometime now. The gay porn on my computer could have been a giveaway. Or it could have been that time he caught me making out with a cute boy on the couch... I told him I was confused. HE seemed to accept it at the time.
I hope my coming out to him will not change our relationship for the worse.. I do care for him so... I hope he acceps me for who I am...
so that friends with benifets situation is not going to happen, for many reasons. for one i was under the impression that some caring was involved. she wasn't even willing to wait a few weeks until i'm comfortable. i told her i couldn't so it and she signed off.
theres still heather, there for me as always. i really do have feelings for her but i told her i didn't because of the long distance...
I've been reading all these miserable coming out stories, and I feel so bad, becuase it was so easy for me. so I started wondering; whats the difference? Is it just where I live and who I hang out with that made it so easy? But I didn't feel nervous or anything like most folk, at least only with a few people, like my mom, brother and best friend. I figures it out the other day. The trick is, I didn't need to come out.
Next Thursday is your only chance this year to hear what I've been up to, as I will be reading two chapters from my forthcoming novel.
I am so obvious... Sometimes I realize this, but most of the time I don't.
OK, so I've been wearing one rainbow bracelet for about 4 weeks now, and the other rainbow bracelet and a rainbow necklace for maybe 2 weeks, and a rainbow ring for 4 days... I mean, maybe if I were only wearing one rainbow item I could pass as someone who likes rainbows, or someone who is open to diversity... but FOUR? I mean, I feel like I have crossed the line between rainbow fashion and rainbow pride.
It started at dinner. Then I mentioned college aps and said I should put down that I was gay because I read that some colleges are looking to reach out to the gay community.
You know the buzzer sound? The gong shell? It was as if little lights when off screaming "You've just said the worst possible thing in the world!!!!"
Looking for friends and maybe more!! I'm an easy going person..
