On Hot Gay Statues: Los Angeles Is Definitely on the Map
In which The Gay Recluse holds a contest. Sort of.
For those of you who haven’t heard of it, Los Angeles is kind of like New York City except it’s in California, and instead of subways you have to drive everywhere! Crazy, right? But that said, like New York City, there are LOTS of gay men there, so we were very pleased to receive our first official entry from L.A. resident Will who writes:
I am attaching photos from a recent trip to the Getty Villa in Los Angeles. The statues are in a quasi-public place since it is free to get into the Getty Villa museum, you just have to make a reservation for timed tickets to visit (see http://www.getty.edu/visit/). Hope you enjoy them.
Let’s check out ’em out:
Uhh, yeah. We’d say that pretty much qualifies.
Here we have (in duplicate) a traditional shot of a pitcher and a catcher. (H-O-T!)
What more can we say? Gay. Naked. Smokin’ hot. It’s official: Los Angeles is now in serious contention.
Nicely done, Will! You should seriously be a hero to the millions of gay men who live in Los Angeles, who unlike those in so many other cities in the United States have yet to submit a single hot gay statue. (That said, it’s not too late!)
Finally, Will asked us to post the following, and given his smokin’ hot submission, how could we refuse?
I also wanted to share a video I made with some friends and posted on YouTube this week. It would be excellent if you shared it with your readers. Even though it relates to immigration, there is a gay angle since it was written, directed, and performed by gay men. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-30BZtpvaTY)
We enjoyed this. It has a 1980s goofball-comedy quality to it that’s very charming, even as it makes a good point about how archaic our immigration system is.
