Decadence and Downfall  or What Doth a Diva Make?! 

Decadence and Downfall

In the world today we are taught that the perfection isn’t just an idea but an attainable tangible goal. That fame, fortune and immortality can all depend on how many likes you get on a Facebook status update or how many times your picture appears in Metro Weekly. There is no one that understands this more than the gay man. From spending hours in the gym to sculpt , tone and maintain our bodies to the hyper-vigilance of “healthy” eating. From the all night party bus benders to the 6 pack of Redbull just to get to the office after a wild weekend. But what is the cost? Does this pressure for an unattainable idea lead to self destruction? Men in The LGBT community have some of the highest propensity towards aaddiction and substance abuse. Is there a correlation? Does the pressure we take on to remain immortal in appearance in fact shorten our lives? Does is really matter how bright your light shines if you’re really just burning the candle at both ends? 

What doth a Diva make 

From Dorthy Dandridge to Halle Berry. From Audrey Hepburn to Michelle Pfiefer. We as gay men have adored the hyper femininity of our leading ladies just as much as we lust after the hyper masculine in their co-stars. But what in fact does a Diva make?! Is it the troubled past and personal pitfalls that lead to Academy notoriety? The no holds barred bitch bravado that accentuates her every action? The tragic romantic antics that make any script look pale in comparison?   Is there subtext in the filmography or personal story of these leading ladies that speak directly to us? Or do we just enjoy a good Bitch regardless of her talent? How has camp, drama, or even comedy help to shape our appreciation of these GORGEOUS creatures?

As usual discussion will be followed by dinner at a local establishment and whatever trouble we can find ourselves in!

Oh the Horror! Tales of Gay Desire & Distress

It’s Friday the 13th! What better way to spend this most fearful and unlucky day than with cute guys and tales of terror and horror?

Discussion for Friday the 13th will have two parts. The first we will share gay horror stories–whether you have a real-life story of a bad date gone really creepy, heard about an unlucky incident that happened to a friend of a friend, or a poor, unfortunate gay soul you’ve read about or seen on TV or in a movie.

The second half of the evening we will collectively make up the gayest terrible, horrible, no good, very bad Friday the 13th our imaginations can dream up to exorcise any possibilities those things could happen to us by night’s end.

Of course, we will go out afterward to eat & drink together to end what should be a very happy Friday the 13th. Discussion starts at 8 pm at St. Margaret’s Church in Dupont as always. Until then, mind ladders and black cats!
