On Hot Gay Statues: Grand Central Not Exactly Straight, Appropriately Enough


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

We’ve been lazy about posting hot gay statues, but it’s time to take care of some local favorites that have been languishing in the submission box. Reader CBNY, who possesses one of the greatest photo collections of hot gay statues in the world, sent these in for our viewing pleasure, along with the following note:

How many among rush hour throngs notice Mercury, and his obviously impressed admirer, presiding over Park Avenue?

We must confess that we had never noticed, but are quite anxious to check these two out. Shall we?

Hey, these guys are hot! Also, is it us, or does Mercury have a hard guy not exactly concealed in the folds of his tunic? Whatevs, these guys need to get a room.

Clearly the lady statue represents the sad plight of so many (straight) women in New York City who must turn to more intellectual pursuits while the men (all gay, of course) are busy chasing each other. But who knows? She may get a book deal out of it — perhaps even a teevee series — and have the la$t laugh.

    Don’t forget to thank Jackie, even if posthumously, that the statuary is still there. If only she could have saved Bonwit’s.

  2. Well put, Wayword Son! There’s almost always a reason to thank Jackie, n’est-ce pas?

    Oh my Lord, I’ve been in love with Mercury (or at least this stone representation of him) for several years. I’m glad to see he/it has finally made the list.
