    That Grand Rapids lib dub was wonderful! What a complicated production. Grand Rapids was the city where I went to my first gay bar (3 Sons + 1 on Division) and where I moved to for 6 months to hold onto a boy friend.

    OMG, that’s hysterical. I grew up in Grand Rapids, and actually know some of those people. But honestly, it’s not nearly that exciting.

  3. says

    Its where I experienced my first gay bar too! Club 67 and then Diversions. NYC is my home now, but I have so many fond memories of visiting Grand Rapids during my college years.

    I’m a cranky cynic and pretty much over the lip dub video fad but I’ve gotta hand it to Grand Rapids. Great job! Almost brought tears to my eyes.
