They raised children and have grandchildren. After 30 years, it is official.
The wedding took place in Hayward, California, on the patio at The Turf Club, the second oldest gay bar in the San Francisco Bay Area. The White Horse is the oldest.
Springtime flowers for an equinox joining.
Is it a bear? Is it a dog? Could be both! Lots of critters and plenty of 15 Asociation men showing colors. Fresh ink. Hey, Tiger! Nutritious and delicious! Well, delicious, anyway. Reception at the home of the old/new couple. Enjoying the reception. Congratulations!

Inspired by our recent trip to Hawaii, I make poke. And a meme. Ahi, pico de gallo, cucumber, avocado, wasabi, fresh ginger, sake, rice and a pinch of code.

The Suit in which Harvey Milk was Assassinated. Collection: GLBT Historical Society. Photo: Dan Nicoletta
Happy Birthday, Harvey. You would have been 84 years old. And yesterday was the 35th anniversary of the White Night Riots. The Texan was there and had this to say about that: “I was there. Much has changed. If I were in San Francisco today I would throw Flowers at City Hall!”

What is writing? Staining sheets. While écriture is understood as operating on a symbolic level, the physical act of mark-making is grounded in materiality. Ink on paper, cum on the bedspread and bloody clothing of all sorts share the pull of the gaze…

Chain cage. Works like a full body Chinese finger trap. Poster art from London scene.
Barbering strop and antique calipers. No dungeon should be without.
Detour. Repurposed floatation device or boat bumper. More chain.
Good advice! Feeding tray. Corner of the main cage. Cozy.
Many a night many a day. Locked up safe and away. Those who dig cages find it a nice stay.
Dubious history, great Novy art and duct tape.
Bear flag and medical exam tables.
Sling of course. For a St. Andrew’s Cross click here
Another cage. Faux bamboo.
And a head cage. Want a pear tree? It’s in the orchard…
