RoadLongtime SF Tenderloin gay bathhouse to become doggie day care center: "A doggy day care center with space for up to 60 canines is scheduled to open early next year at 130 Turk St., which is on a rundown corridor between Taylor and Jones streets. The facility, which could aid city-led efforts to rejuvenate the rough-and-tumble area, will provide only daytime accommodations for dogs, proprietor David Nale said. Customers could include Tenderloin residents and workers who park in surrounding garages who will pay up to $40 a day for the service, according to Nale. The charming three-story building has been vacant since The City cracked down on gay bathhouses amid the 1980s AIDS epidemic."

  1. Um...maybe someone could explain to me the grease smeared on the underwear models?

  2. The "hot guy who works with his hands and gets all dirty" is a fixture of gay erotica and old Madonna videos. Or maybe it's just fun tracing all those greasy hand prints with your eyes and imagining your own hands wandering...

  3. That Netherlands story isn't gay enough. Maybe this instead:

    "Two fathers go out to buy a gerbil that costs 17.95 euros. The Pet Shop Boys give them a 20 per cent couple's discount. How much must Jan's fathers pay?"

    Answer: 7.18 euros each (they're going Dutch).

  4. "Defense bill (along with DADT repeal) in danger if GOP takes House this November."

    I think it's sad that gays still cling to the embarrassing delusion that President Messiah (and most Democrats) actually care about LGBT issues.

    DADT has just as much of a chance of passing now as it does after November: none. Why? Because President Political Genius doesn't want to piss off right-wing voters who aren't going to vote for him anyway, and he knows none of you are going to break ranks to support a big bad Republican.

    Sucks to be a battered wife, doesn't it?

  5. Sad article about meth use in Seattle. The really sad fact is about meth abuse in ALL US cities. Meth is evil, plain and simple. I'm a meth survivor, I know how hard it is.

    We need to do a better job of holding each other up rather than pushing each other down. I'd never have made it without help.
    We need to be better at accepting ourselves and each other.

  6. The end of an era. Ginsberg and his crowd left behind some interesting memoirs, interesting reading, especially the sex. Sad to see his apartment scrubbed beyond recognition. Good article and comments, good find. Thanks for posting it.
