    That’s what you’ll see when gay Obama and Clinton supporters ocme together the last night of the Denver Convention. It will be beautiful…better than porn.

    ‘Course those two don’t look old enough to vote yet, but so what.

    I envision a 30s-era black and white romance flick…

    Hambuechen: “Come to me, Liebchen…”

    Horton: “No, no… we mustn’t… ”

    [Enter Joan Blondell in a maid’s uniform: “Don’t mind me, I’m just here to sweep up the chalk dust…”]

    Hey, MILKMAN,

    if Joan Blondell wore a maids uniform in the 30s, it would’ve been above her thighs. She was sexy back then.

    Is “liebchen” more macho than “liebling”? Lord, I was calling my “street trade” the wrong term of endearment for two decades!

    I think my West Coast Sis, THE QUEEN, probably looks like Joan Blondell…a young Joan Blondell, of course.

  4. the queen says

    this is a excellent opportunity for one of gore vidal or camille paglia’s commentaries … i mean here you have it, the moment when two men look into each other’s eyes with the faint possiblity that “yes, I am a homo” with that crescendo slowly building up (worthy or any rossini overture) of sexual hunger, the knowing that they must have each other at any price but due to society pressures and taboo’s they dare not cross the line and if they do one must kill the other and/or himself… or perhaps choose to live a happy life of gaydom in a west coast gay ghetto… are those the options? gay marriage anyone?

  5. the queen says

    thank you so much, miss derrick, you are so very kind… yes, there was a time (many, many, many moons ago when i did bear an astonishing resemblance to the young joan blondell) … but i’m afraid that these days it’s more marjorie main meets barbara bush… thanks for the memory…

    All I noticed last night was Horton trying to be very butch (Hey Dude! Hey Bro!) every possible moment. Here he looks like he’s trying to get away with Fabian having none of it! Is there any video of this scene?

    I love how the strapping 5’3″ guy sweeps the humpy 5’1″ guy off his feet — it’s like a painting in miniature.

    I used to love tall, dark, and handsome, but now I’m all about the pocket hotties: Fabien, Alexandre Despatie, Emile Hirsch, Ben Foster….

    I have always noticed how the Europeans have no problem with this behavior, good for Horton, though Horton is going to get so much flack for this buy his buddies the rest of the Games. Screw them if they do Horton, you can always move to Germany.

    Eric is right. All this is is a sweet photo. I’ve hugged one of my friends in public, and on more than one occasion, I’ve had some straight boy make a suggestive comment. I can’t say I liked it very much.

    What a beautiful sight!! Ironically, German men are often considered the most stoical of all western Europeans, and Americans aren’t much better sometimes. But is it right for us to speculate on these two? Why are we as gays so quick to assume an affectionate look or touch is also sexual? Some men can be very affectionate together and not at all gay.

    “It’s like a painting in miniature”


    Yeah, Derrick, I was hoping that the mental image of the hemline of Joan’s maid’s uniform would be super short… she was the bee’s knees back in the day.

    Liebchen and Liebling are pretty much synonymous as far as I can tell. Other than singing opera arias, I’m hardly fluent. Maybe someone can correct me if I’m mistaken. As far as butch goes, I don’t see a distinction… and if trade is the same as it was in the 80s and 90s, then honey it really doesn’t matter which of those words you use, does it? It’s all in the eyes.

  12. says

    I remember this embrace. Very lovely. (And of course it’d be nice to see more.) But it was 6 months ago. So why is it showing up again now? Is there some news about either or both of them? (D0n’t I wish!) hmmm…
