    Divine was amazing, a true talent

  2. There are some advantages to being an aging gay man. Around the summer of 1978 I was very young and newly out and I was in Provincetown for a weeks vacation. Early in the week I hooked up with Rene, a young man from Montreal whose native language was French. Communication was hard but it was not a problem since we had our dicks in each other mouths most of the time. I will say we were the cute young couple at our guest house. It was a wonderful vacation, One night we managed to get out of bed and take in a show. It was Divine in WOMEN IN PRISON. We were in a postage stamp size theater in the front row. Divine was barely an arms length away. He was nasty, vulgar and a blast. Unfortunately Rene had no idea what was going on. Thanks for bring back an old memory Will!

    So boring being gay these days. We have lost the glamour. The characters. The art. No one was like Devine. No drag queen/terrorist will ever take her place. The scene is drab dreary and dull. Everyone wants to act straight for fear of having a good time. The world has changed. No more stonewall. No more studio 54. gay people always moaning about equality. I preferred it when we had something to fight for… Fighting gives birth to expression and creativity. Today we have the closet gays… Worried about ruining their careers. Gonna get this DVD. It will remind me of an era I would have loved to have been part of… Instead of the boring gay scenes of today. Sad but true.

    • I know what you mean Star. I miss the days when you had to enter a gay bar through an alley. Many did not even have windows. This always stirs up a lot of nasty comments but I miss hanging out with throbbing, hot, half naked men. Now a days the only sound you hear in gay bars are women shrieking and disrupting the peace. I don’t object to women per se but I am a big old faggot who loves the company of men when I venture out. There is the Streamworks Bath House here in Chicago that I have seen women arguing with the doorman to be allowed to go in and see what is going on. Can you imagine a man begging to go into a women’s private space to see what is going on? They would be arrested.

    ‘Are you Divine enough to win?’

    Apparently I’m not American enough to win.

What do you think?
