On Hot Gay Statues: Madrid Shames the United States

17Mar08

In which The Gay Recluse holds a contest. Sort of.

Let’s face it: when it comes to gay rights hot gay statues, Europe is miles ahead of the United States. Reader Anthony Goriainoff, a journalist and photographer based in Madrid, writes:

Madrid these days is really into its art and it takes itself very seriously. Wherever you read in the Spanish media, the fact that Madrid has three major museums within walking distance of each other is a source of pride. Art is big business in general. That goes double for Spain, for many a bargain when compared to other capitals such as Paris or New York…The Prado boulevard has been peppered beautifully with Igor Mitoraj‘s sculptures. Neoclassical, postmodern, certainly sensual and at the same time, cold, given their metallic nature.”

Let’s check out some of the pix Tony submitted:

Cold? More like smokin’ hot.

We wish this photograph was bigger, but — whatev, that’s why we present it in triplicate — in any case, it’s still seriously gay and smokin’ hot.

That’s what we’re talking about! Let’s face it: Madrid is light years ahead of most if not all cities in the United States. As usual, we’re kind of embarrassed.

Nicely done, Tony — thanks for submission! (Even though we’re kind of depressed as we consider the bleak landscape in the U.S.) Does anyone know of any public installations in the United States that are even close to this gay (and this smokin’ hot)? If so, we want to hear about it!
