On Hot Gay Statues: Getty Villa Continues To Dominate West Coast


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

We are quite pleased to tell you that our favorite art blogger C-Monster has recently been documenting the hot-gay-statue scene in Los Angeles, where in addition to the University of Southern California, some of the hottest gay statues in history have been cropping up at the Getty Villa. Of course, longtime readers will no doubt remember our first entry from the Getty Villa, which proved to be quite gay and almost insanely hot; thus, we expect that you’ll be as shocked (yet pleased) as we were to learn that there are possibly even hotter — yet just as gay! — statues to be found in the same environs. Let’s check ’em out, shall we?


Whoas…here’s the Greek “Victorious Youth,” dating from 300-100 BC, which as we all know was the pinnacle of hot gay living (and not coincidentally, western civilization)! (Photo by C-Monster.)


Srsly hot.                                                         (Photo C-M.)


Note the commentary on the wall, which seems a bit too long? How about: “Smokin’ Hot!” Also! We have more pix of that guy in the back (and — we promise — you won’t be disappointed).  (Photo by C-M.)


Here’s someone else, clearly gay — hello toga! — and above all super smokin. We have to imagine those patrons leaving the scene are some satisfied customers! (Photo by C-M.)


Wait, what!? There’s more? Is this the hottest (and gayest) collection of statuary outside of Washington Heights? (Photo by C-M.)


Apparently so! This guy is obviously in the running for hot gay twink statue of the year. (Photo by C-M.)

Thanks again, C-Monster! We’ll look forward to seeing any other hot gay statues you happen to see on the left coast. As for everyone else, it’s not too late to submit your entry for the 2008 Hot Gay Statue of the Year.

    I was at the Getty Villa years ago, when it was just the Gety Museum period. I was visiting from out of town and with a fab posse of LA Lipstick Lesbos and all they could comment on was the circle jerks happening on all the sarcophogaii and urns. Tney were on everything!! Talk about hot!!!
