Sights seen at International Mr. Leather in Chicago

 Who’s a good boy?  Woof!Etienne art. From the historic Gold Coast. Now on display at the Leather Archives and Museum.     The original leather flag. By Tony DeBlaise. 1989. LAM. 

Peter Fiske’s Jacket with 15 Association colors. 

Morris Taylor art.   The California contestants.   Numbers 19 and 20. Al Parso on the right. 52-card pick up, anyone?  Innovative footwear…. 

Rats! For real. Sight seen at IML. 

  

Sign seen near host hotel at IML. International Mr. Leather. If some of the pups here were really pawing around for realness, they’d catch these critters in their mouths and bring them in as offerings. Don’t hold your breath, y’all. It’s mostly just all about the outfits – and sure, a bit of sex. 

Married at last! Gay pair make it official on 30th anniversary…

 

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!  

Island hopping…

Mokulele Airlines. Tiny airline, tiny terminal, tiny plane. 

More cool signage. More to follow…Watching planes and airport personnel…

Volcanoes! Whales! Surfing! Snorkeling! Zip-line the jungle! Horseback riding! Golf! Manta rays! Vanilla Kitchen? Not so sure about that one. Brochure still-life…

Best not get dehydrated on the long flight….

Iolani Air signage…

Our plane…

A note of familiarity…

In the air. The view out the window. The underside of the wing…

The view of the aisle. The Ex-Texan’s boot…

Water traffic out the window…

Co-pilot. Nice view…

Landing on Maui…



I know you like poke…



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.

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!”

Hey, Hippie Birdy, Harvey. Here’s something for you: words, words, words…now glowing pixels maybe making a mark in the brightly-lit on-line world of today. No: no apologies.

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…
