ABBA’s Crazy Costumes Had a Reason Behind Them

Abba ABBA-early-costumes

platinum-abba costumes

The glittering hotpants, sequined jumpsuits and platform heels that Abba wore at the peak of their fame were designed not just for the four band members to stand out – but also for tax efficiency, according to claims over the weekend.

Swedish law meant costumes could be deducted against tax so long as they were so outrageous they could not possibly be worn on the street.

The History of New York Nightlife

Surveying the evolving nature of nightlife in New York City, THE FUN: The Social Practice of Nightlife in NYC
is a first-of-its-kind publication, documenting the new forms of
nightlife practitioners to emerge since the turn of the millennium.
Through profiles of over 30 artists, including the royalty of Manhattan
nightlife like Susanne Bartsch and Ladyfag; hybrid forms like Xtapussy
and FCKNLZ; the continuation of minimal wave and goth communities
through Pendu Disco; and the vibrant queer scenes of JUDY, Frankie
Sharp, and My Chiffon is Wet, THE FUN documents the rich
contemporary cultural activity keeping NYC as weird and innovative as
decades past. 
Accompanying these profiles are essays by a range of
voices in the nightlife, including artists Rob Roth and Genesis
P-Orridge, curators and critics Claire Bishop and Jake Yuzna, as well as
journalist Michael Musto providing both historical context and
contemporary understanding of nightlife as a vital artistic practice
that has been marginalized by the arts sector for hundreds of years. 
THE FUN traces the history of nightlife as it has evolved,
from the explosion of large and small discos throughout the 1970s like
Studio 54, which paved the way for 80s megaclubs; the candy-colored club
kid movement of Michael Alig and the Limelight in the early 90s; the
parallel expansion of the boundary shattering merger of drag,
performance, and music in downtown venues such as the Pyramid Club and
Mother; the rise of Brooklyn as a new focal point in the 2000s with the
emergence of Luxx, Secret Project Robot, Silent Barn and other hybrid
arts/music/nightlife venues; and on into the many vibrant forms found

978-1-57687-659-6, $39.95)
Richie Rich and Traver Rains, aka  Heatherette got to enjoy the club scene as well as celebrity and notoriety. Pop culture loved Heatherette, but so did society princesses. Everyone
from Paris Hilton and Lydia Hearst to the Backstreet Boys, Foxy Brown
and Gwen Stefani
was drawn to their taste for sparkly streetwear glam.
“The clothes were attention getting and fun,” Heatherette’s longtime
friend and muse Amanda Lepore remembers. “They had a distinct look,
which at that time — everyone wanted it. David LaChapelle was using it. All the
celebrities wanted it. It was in demand.”   (from Paper Mag). 
Since their last show Rains moved to LA to pursue photography
while Rich is set to launching two fashion lines this spring: Rich
& Warr, a mens line, and a womens, Chantilly Rich, with Chantilly
Lace designer, Chantelle Warr. Although busy, Rich still has his eye on
the club scene. “It’s been fun watching the new generation of kids. When
I moved to New York I was ‘the new’ to the old nightlife generation,”
Richie says. “Now it’s fun to see all the new kids coming on the block
and dressing up. I feel like the style is coming back. Who knows, maybe
Heatherette will too.”

Do Single Gay Men Have Dirty Sheets?

Beds are sanctuaries, (for most people) it’s the place where we begin and end each day. And get the much needed sleep we deserve. But for
some British men, keeping that sanctuary tidy by changing the bed
sheets on a regular basis apparently falls low on their priority list. A
new survey by U.K. mattress company Ergoflex reveals that young, single British men are the worst offenders, changing sheets a mere once every three months. – Probably straight men, I would imagine. 

Single women (and probably gay men!)  reported swapping linens every two and a half weeks, while
couples claimed to change sheets every two weeks. Of those couples, the
study found 81% of those washing the sheets were women. Of the 2,004
interviewed, on average men admitted to owning only one set of sheets
while women estimated around three selections.

“One person can perspire as much as a liter in a night—even more if you have a lot of covers,” an Ergoflex spokesman  told the Wall Street Journal. He also explained that skin cells are a source of food for mites, who are
known to fester in mattresses and bedding, and also leave their feces
behind. Fungal mold, fungal spores, lint, fibers, pollen, soil and
cosmetics also accumulate in the often harmless looking sheets.

Sales on #98 Jerseys Soar After Jason Collins Coming Out

We are seeing so many great strides in the gay rights movement right now and positive action from so many LGBT supporters!  The acceptance we are witnessing this year is overwhelming!

Being gay is no longer  a bad career move. There is solidarity in numbers and that is why coming out is SO IMPORTANT!

ABC News reports that sales on #98  jerseys soared this week!:

Team spokesman Scott Hall told ABC News
that 100 percent of custom jerseys ordered from the team’s online store
bore Collins’ name and number, 98, on the back, after Collins revealed
his homosexuality in an article published on Sports Illustrated’s
website on Monday…While Hall could not reveal how many custom Collins
jerseys were sold, he said that the team’s general merchandise sales and
online traffic spiked following Collins’ announcement.

I never knew that the “98” was a tribute to Matthew Shepard. Even Judy Shepard was not aware of the tribute to her gay son. 

The mother of a gay University of Wyoming
student who was robbed and beaten to death in 1998 says she finds it
touching that NBA veteran Jason Collins honored her son by wearing
jersey No. 98.

Matthew Shepard’s mother, Judy, said that she
hadn’t known about the tribute by Collins, who this week became the
first player still active in one of the four major U.S. professional
sports leagues to announce that he is gay.

“We’re very touched that he regards Matthew as
somebody special,” Judy Shepard said in a telephone interview. “We’re
especially happy that now he feels free to be himself. We’re happy for
him, relieved that his news is being received so well across the board.”

While Collins hid his sexual orientation up
until now, he said he quietly made a statement for gay rights by wearing
No. 98 with the Boston Celtics and the Washington Wizards. The number refers to 1998, the year Matthew Shepard was tied to a fence and beaten
outside Laramie. 


ES Addicted Mens Clothing Line Expands this Year

I first became a fan of ES underwear and swimsuits in 2010, when I found their stores in Barcelona. Now ES Collection
has ventured beyond underwear and swimwear.

Already they launched their
athletic wear collection and now there is also casual wear. Jeans,
shirts, shorts. Yes even awesome colorful sneakers and  cool hip belts.  Wrestling singlets and backless undies, running pants, t-shirts and tanks…You simply have no more
reason to not wear ES Collection. In fact, you can fill your  entire closet with
complete ES outfits!

 Fierce is a collection for
an energetic man, bold and without any complex.

 Remarkable  colors,
new fabrics and the genuine ES Collection
designs on the new jeans will not leave you indifferent.

Collection’s Spring/Summer collection 2013 couldn’t have been more

And of course ES Collection  always guarantees
that same superior quality we all know so well from their swimwear and
underwear in this new exciting collection as well.

GORGEOUS Kirill Dowidoff already posed for ES before. In fact, his work with ES
Collection back in 2012 was an enormous boost for his modeling career,
and the handsome Russian has been offered many gigs ever since. But not
forgetting who made that all happen, Kirill agreed once again to
collaborate with the popular Spanish brand for their  new Fierce campaign.



Versace Mens Spring Summer 2013 GAY GAY GAY

I am not sure I get it….

But the men are always hot. 
The main protagonist was a gladiator-boxer type with a blonde Adonis coif and muscles galore.

These are not words that usually populate my mouth…”Thank You Donatella!”
Versace took the season by its proverbial balls and swung them over her
head in victory!

This is a collection that starts out looking like it
is for the WWF set.

The video is 12″  long –
I mean  12 minutes  long. 


Malayshia says BEWARE of Gay Men in V-NECKS

Your deep-V’s aren’t welcome here, Dov Charney. 

The Malaysian government has begun organizing seminars aimed at helping parents and teachers identify latent homosexuality in children. 
One of the principal warning signs?
 V-neck T-shirts.  (WTF?)
It’d be sort of funny if it weren’t rooted in a wildly un-self aware bigotry. Singapore news outlet AsiaOne has the details on the guidelines taught by the Teachers Foundation of Malaysia:

   The list … categorizes lesbians as people who are attracted to
women, who like to eat, sleep and hang out in the company of other
women, and who have no affection for men.

Its list for men includes preferences for V-necks and sleeveless clothes.

In a seminar in Penang on Wednesday, Deputy Education Minister Mohd
Puad Zarkashi said not many people understood or knew the early
“symptoms” of homosexuality, bisexuality and transgender inclinations to
prevent its spread, liberal news portal Malaysian Insider reported.

So far, the group has organized ten seminars on this new form of
parental gaydar with the latest one attracting 1,500 attendees in the
majority Muslim country. According to Asian media outlets,
other tell-tale signs of homosexuality for men include carrying “big
handbags, similar to those carried by women,” wearing tight,
light-colored clothes and possessing a “chiseled” physique.   READ MORE   AT  Atlantic Wire

David Beckhams Underwear at H&M

Frankly, I have seen David Beckham look better. Mind you, I would not kick him out of bed for eating crackers – I just think he has looked better.

That said, the father-of-four shows off his toned physique, as well as his many tattoos, in the pictures that were shot in L.A. by photographer Alasdair McLellan.

Posting the pictures on his Facebook
page this morning, Beckham wrote: ‘Hey everyone, here are a few shots
from my new Bodywear range for H&M. Hope you like them.’

Fans responded in their thousands by
‘liking’ the pictures and commenting on how ‘hot’ and ‘handsome’ the
star looks with his moustache and quiff hair do. –  again, not a fan of that daddy look! Just sayin!

The L.A. Galaxy player joined joined
forces with H&M to design a range of underwear for men in February,
following in the footsteps of his fashion designer wife, Victoria.

In a statement he said: ‘I am so
excited about this new campaign for David Beckham Bodywear at H&M. I
wanted to express the strength and quality of the David Beckham
Bodywear collection with these images and also the wearability and fit.

‘I love the range and feel so comfortable in each of the pieces. It has become second nature for me to wear it!’

In addition to his new campaign, nine 10-foot statues of the soccer star
will be placed throughout New York City, Los Angeles and San Francisco.


JC Penny Keeps Pushing the Gay Lesbian Envelope

At this point, I just think One Million Moms need to get lives.

 The group who calls
themselves One Million Moms, despite comprising only 40,000 members, is after JCPenney  once again, this time because of their recent May mailer, which includes a photo of a lesbian couple with their two daughters.

OMM  feel as if this means JCPenney is somehow taking sides, and they
want them to take a “neutral stand.”

What would those sides be, exactly?
Anti-gay vs. pro-gay? Right-wing vs. left-wing? Christian vs.
otherwise? What these women are missing is that JCPenney is taking a “neutral” stand.

Jenny block discussed the issue on Huff Post.

This is about ignorance. It’s about ignorance about the LGBTQ community.
It’s about ignorance about God’s love for everyone. It’s even about
ignorance of simple commerce.

“If they want our business, then we will
not be ignored!”  says  OMM.

Seriously ladies?   JCPenney wants everyone’s business!

Jean Paul Gaultier Makes Diet Coke Fashionable, Again

Jean Paul Gaultier
 is going to make
 Diet Coke fashionable!

Diet Coke recently named French designer
Jean Paul Gaultier as the brand’s new creative director. And the first
campaign launched under Gaultier’s command proves his creative mettle
remains firmly intact.

In images shot by award-winning
photographer and director Stéphane Sednaoui, portraits of the
60-year-old’s impish face are strategically placed over those of
(presumably) female models dressed head-to-toe in Gaultier gear, thus
continuing his long history of blurring gender lines with light-hearted
humor. gaultier’s limited edition bottles of Diet Coke will be available
in nine countries in Europe from April.

But the outré eye candy does not end
there. Gaultier can also be seen on screen with chic French marionettes
in episodes of The Night & Day Serial Designer, a new series of
short films promoting the iconic beverage.

We must recognize, as always, we love the
work of Jean Paul Gaultier. His printing has brought a touch of humor
and originality to the American brand, don’t you think?

The New Diet Coke bottles look a lot like his sexy torso-shaped perfume bottles.
The designer’s part-creepy, part-charming Diet Coke ads (in which he
provides much-needed makeovers to hapless puppets) culminated with a bigparty in Paris last night, where he unveiled his limited-edition Diet
Coke bottles.

Jean Paul Gaultier’s history with Madonna is the stuff of MTV legend; her infamous Blonde Ambition-era
cone bras and corsets stand alone as some of the French design
maverick’s most iconic pieces. So, naturally, when he was recently commissioned as the creative director of Diet Coke, he couldn’t help but
reference the pop culture touchstone in the ads.

Gaultier’s first Coca Cola Light commercial follows up from a series of early web ads.
The extended version shows the designer engaged in a
playful, vaguely creepy fashion shoot involving dolls while a remix of
Dragonette’s “I Get Around” plays. At the ad’s end, the new bottles make
their fashionable debut: in breton stripes, bras and corsets, they are
inarguably the coolest way for a beverage to salute pop and high style
in one swoop (or shall we say swig?).

The behind-the-scenes are great!

Fittingly, Gaultier also confirmed today via Grazia that he will be designing costumes for Madonna’s upcoming world tour.


Jesus Was Not A Homophobe Lawsuit

Earlier today, Lambda Legal filed suit against Wayne Local School District in Ohio on behalf of a Waynesville High School Student, Maverick Couch.

Last April, on the National Day of Silence, Maverick Couch wore a T-shirt to Waynesville High School that featured a rainbow Ichthys or “sign of the fish” along with the words “Jesus is not a homophobe.”  The school principal ordered Maverick to turn the T-shirt inside out and told him that if he wore it again he would be suspended from school.

Maverick did not give up. He researched his First Amendment Rights as a student and went back to school determined to wear his shirt to mark the 2012 National Day of Silence. On his own, Maverick repeatedly requested the right to wear the shirt and was told each time that he would be suspended if he wore the shirt. Maverick called Lambda Legal.

On January 24, 2012, Lambda Legal sent an educational letter to the school, something we commonly do in cases like this, reminding school officials that students are protected under the First Amendment. The School Board refused to change its position, arguing that Maverick’s t-shirt is “sexual” and “indecent.”

Today, LAMDA LEGAL papers in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Ohio asking the court to issue an injunction prohibiting the school from further interference with Maverick’s First Amendment rights.

Throughout this process, Maverick Couch has led the way. Maverick is standing up for his rights as well as for the rights of LGBTQ students around the country. He truly is a Maverick.

MADONNA W.E.? Mixed Reviews

Madonna landed stateside last night to premiere her directorial debut “W.E.” in New York at the Ziegfeld Theater.

 While the dresses Madge wore to the
European premieres were a bit more understated, like the black and pink L’Wren Scott and the blue gown with Chanel leather gloves
for a photocall, you just never know what’s going to happen when you’ve
got one of the world’s most famous faces in front of the camera.

Madge didn’t disappoint. Madonna opted for full-on red
carpet drama in a sheer black Marchesa gown with a lace and sequinencrusted bodice and gravity-defying ruffles on the sleeves

With Madonna’s “W.E.” taking home a Golden Globe
just over a week ago (her “Masterpiece” won Best Original Song), much
of the buzz at the film’s NYC premiere Monday night (January 23) was
about the upcoming Oscar nominations. (Today).

the night’s well-wishers: star Andrea Riseborough , Oscar Isaac, David
Harbour & James D’Arcy + Lady Bunny , Carson Kressley, Diane Von
Furstenberg, Calvin Klein, Julia Stiles, Craig O’Connor, Ivanka Trum,
Vinny Moschetta, Zac Posen, Joey Selden, Mark Nelson, Arik Azulay, Donna
Karan, Christopher Jiménez,Ewan McGregor, Kristopher Haigh and Keith

Lady Bunny, whose opinion I do value says,I did not enjoy the very confusing film, which Madonna introduced to a
very impatient audience cuz it was almost an hour late and she gave a
dud of a speech.

And then the film? Make that W/E for
whatever? She fancies herself a story-teller? You can’t act,
so…direct? A complete head-scratcher whose plot lost me in the
second scene. In the very first scene, a woman does two things no one
ever does: takes a drag from a cigarette and then gulps some booze
before exhaling (!) and then unzips her dress before removing her high
heels? Never! Ladies, don’t we always kick off the uncomfortable heels
first? Unless you have a crap director who doesn’t know what she’s doing
and isn’t capable of catching stuff like that. Had to split halfway

When Madonna takes the Super Bowl stage next month, her performance will
reportedly be “imagined” by Cirque du Soleil and Madonna’s longtime
choreographer/ creative director Jamie King. The event may also feature
appearances from her “Gimme All Your Luvin” collaborators, including
Nicki Minaj. According to reports, the set list for the Super Bowl show
will include “Luvin” as well as Madonna classics like “Ray of Light,”
Vogue” and “Music.”

Kenneth Cole Honored by Gray Line and Announces New Aids Awareness Plans

York is a wonderfully energized and creative city. I continue to be
inspired by its eclectic, diverse and accepting spirit.

I am honored
that Gray Line New York has
made me a part of their Ride of Fame campaign, and I hope to continue
contributing to what this great city stands for and stands in.

Kenneth Cole

Kenneth Cole was honored by Gray Line New York yesterday in New York City, as the tour company’s November 2011 Ride of Fame dedicatee.

Mr. Cole is the first fashion designer to be inducted in the campaign and is the only Ride of Fame inductee to design his own bus wrap.

The celebration was timed to coincide with Cole’s partnership with MTV Come Together AIDS Awareness Campaign where on December 1, 2011 (World AIDS Day) he will announce new call to action items and his newly designed AIDS awareness ribbon.

After his Ride of Fame ribbon cutting, Mr. Cole held the broken piece of red ribbon next to his chest, emulating an AIDS Awareness red ribbon.


Earlier this month, Cole partnered with the MTV Staying Alive Foundation and amfAR on the reinterpretation of the iconic AIDS ribbon. Designed to commemorate the discovery of the virus 30 years ago, and to ignite a new wave of awareness about the pandemic with the next generation, the new AIDS ribbon, features a double loop, and symbolizes the coming together of individuals and the re-doubling of efforts in the fight against HIV and AIDS. In addition as part of this campaign as noted above, Cole will be announcing a call to action including the new AIDS ribbon on World AIDS Day, December 1.


Michael ABS Situation Sorrentino asked to Please stop Wearing Abercrombie and Fitch

The internet is buzzing this morning…..

While Most brands are begging for celebrities to endorse their product; what could be better than free advertising?

But Abercrombie & Fitch are requesting that the cast of Jersey Shore do NOT wear their clothing. They allegedly even offered the Situation  money to STOP!

The retail company released a statement yesterday, referring to the proposal as ‘A Win-Win Situation’.

They expressed ‘deep concern’ that the cast of the MTV reality show are parading around in their goods and blackening their reputation.

It also stated: ‘We understand that the show is for entertainment purposes, but believe this association is contrary to the aspirational nature of our brand, and may be distressing to many of our fans.’

The Situation –  Michael Sorrentino, 29, has now been offered a ‘substantial payment’ to ‘wear an alternate brand’.


SIR RICHARDS the world’s first Luxury and Charitable Condom

Designer Condoms!

What more could you ask for?!

As humorous as their name may be, Sir Richard’s is serious about public health, and social and animal welfare.

The distinctive packaging of Sir Richard’s condoms does more than help the product, ahem, pop out, on the shelf. It is helping to reach consumers who want to protect more than themselves.

The condoms, made their debut in eco-friendly type stores late last fall, and are trying to reach a more receptive audience then your typical male condom buyer. Targeting women, college students and the gay community, Sir Richard’s is hoping to reach a more socially progressive market.

They have  been very well-received by retailers and hoteliers such as The Wynn Las Vegas, Viceroy, Cassa Hotel, and even boutique retail outlets like Fred Segal, Paul Smith & Whole Foods and more.

Not only will the condoms be vegan-friendly, made without casein, which is typically a standard part of the manufacturing process, but for each condom purchased, a condom is donated to distributing organizations in developing countries.

The condom maker is developing partnerships with organizations in Haiti, Thailand and Uganda for donation distribution in those countries. Semi-annually, the company will send a shipment equal to the number of condoms sold in the previous six months to these areas.

Sir Richard’s founder Mathew Gerson, in an interview for Elephant Journal, explained that in recent years, most of the US funds for sexual health in developing nations went toward abstinence education, leaving the global demand for free condoms only 10 percent fulfilled.

While there is an obvious, and great, need for protection in every country, cultural acceptance is a huge barrier that must be treated cautiously. Each of the countries being given condoms will have their own cultural-specific branding and language on the packaging, hopefully easing any remaining stigmas or social barriers.

Sir Richard’s is also aiming to make condom buying more of a fashionable experience here in the US, where the majority of people are sill embarrassed to buy rubbers at their local drugstore.

The company is hoping that the future brings more opportunities to be more than just a pretty face, though. Currently the lubricant is silicone-based, rather than petroleum, and they eventually want to implant seeds in their packaging as well as many other eco initiatives, but FDA regulations make any kind of change difficult in the condom industry. So while their goals are green, for now they will have to make do with providing free protection from sexually transmitted diseases and unwanted pregnancies in developing countries. After all, as they say, doing good never felt better.

Available in Extra large, Ultra Thin, Classic Ribbed, and my favorite,  Pleasure Dots!
Compared to most brands I checked, they are actually the same price or a little less expensive. And GREAT QUALITY!  SIR RICHARDS   find them on FaceBook!
