IF you haven’t looked at your Instagram feed lately, there’s a massive circuit party taking place this week on the Greek island of Mykonos, where dozens of built, mostly European and American men have gathered for a hedonistic week of sex, drinking, drugs, parties, and thirsty selfies in the sun. But things were not so harmonious at a recent event in the Aegean paradise.
An embarrassing fight broke out at the XLSIOR Festival on Monday, just as the chorus from The Greatest Showman’s “Never Enough” was reaching its heights.
Facebook commenters lapped up the schadenfreude and turned up the sarcasm.
Wrote one commenter: “It continued on outside for another 20 minutes. I witnessed it first hand while I was outside too. Interesting that gays fight like this. This happens mostly among straights.”
Added another: “I thought a gay mosh pit was a back room and some gun oil… God, I’m so out of touch with ‘duh gaze’ these days.”
Said one observer: “‘Beyoncé is better than Madon…’ (fisticuffs)”
Another posited a theory: “Probably started over another guy trying to touch or fuck his weekend bf. I’ve seen it happen there before. I think it’s always a Cavo paradicio too. Probably the same muscle Mary every year”
Another pleaded for harmony: “Rare thing to happen in the gay community , stick together, stay together , love together. Keep us strong.”
Another replied: “Aggression does not equate masculinity as some comments seems to suggest. This at a gay function is not the look. Matter of fact this entire display is beyond disappointing. I expect better from the gays. Leave that B.S display of aggression to idiotic straight boys… Also venue capacity shouldn’t be an excuse either, because I’ve attended wall to wall gay parties for years (TRUST ME) & this sort of thing hardly, ever happened.”
