Manhattan Gays have three National Holidays: Halloween, when we can get dolled up in our most ostentatious drag; Gay Pride, where we can militantly sashay around every nook and cranny of the city; and Fleet Week, where we can ogle roving packs of uniformed, young, horned up straight boys. Except things are little different this year: Now those navy men can be openly homo!
Will the sailor boys now hit all our favorite gay bars? Will the ones in love hold each others’ hands in public? Will there be a gay seaman orgy somewhere in the depths of the Intrepid? So many sexy possibilities have opened up with this new era of out and proud gay military men. Let’s all go out and proudly support our boys in blue, and coerce them to slip out of them.
