In which The Gay Recluse asks a reader to think more conceptually. In response to our recent Franco Harris Hot Gay Statue submission, Reader Queerunity writes: all football players wear spandex, why is this gay? We’re posting this comment — and thanks for bringing this up, Queerunity — because we think it raises an interesting […]


In which The Gay Recluse holds a contest. Sort of. Today we received an interesting submission from Reader Troy, who writes to us from Pittsburgh: I have an important question for The Gay Recluse. In the Pittsburgh airport there is a statue of Franco Harris, who I have no reason to believe is gay. Yet […]


In which The Gay Recluse attempts to reconcile his traffic-whoring impulses with a desire to flee the crazies.   In March, as part of a new traffic-whoring initiative, we opened up The Gay Recluse to commenters. By and large we’ve been very pleased with the results, not only in terms of traffic but in terms of the many […]


In which The Gay Recluse holds a contest. Sort of. Today we received two unofficial entries for the contest, “unofficial” because 1) the first statue is in Europe and we are primarily interested in locating the hottest gay statues in the U.S., and 2) the second statue doesn’t exist except in someone’s photoshopallucination! Yet we […]


In which The Gay Recluse holds a contest. Sort of. Today reader Jason sent in the following note along with some pictures: I don’t know why I never really noticed this before, but the statuary at Columbus Circle and Central Park West is really gay. There’s two seriously built guys who seem to be having […]


In which The Gay Recluse holds a contest. Sort of. Today reader Will wrote with the following update: I was just in New Orleans and got some more photos for your Hottest Gay Statues contest. They’re from the Mardi Gras World museum (http://www.mardigrasworld.com/). Laissez les bons temps rouler! Let’s see what New Orleans has to […]


In which The Gay Recluse holds a contest. Sort of. Today reader Scott LaPierre sends in this from Georgia, as in the former Soviet Socialist Republic. Scott writes: i don’t know exactly what’s supposed to be going on in this mural/statue, but there seems to be a lot of innuendo here…it’s in Gori, Georgia (the […]


In which the Gay Recluse holds a contest. Sort of. Although this is not an official submission, we felt it was imperative to share a comment from reader GenghisKuhn in response to Seth Tisue’s entry from Philadelphia (shown below). Genghis writes: What makes this even funnier is that it looks like the J-Man might be […]


In which The Gay Recluse posts news and analysis from our U.K. correspondent, The London Eye. Today we received this missive from The London Eye: Dear Gay Recluse: Here are a few more London statues… Even though we’re not eligible for awards, we want the United States to know that our statues are HERE, our […]


In which The Gay Recluse holds a contest. Sort of. Today we present a submission from Seth Tisue, who sends in an entry from the 30th Street Station in Philadelphia. Let’s check it out, shall we? Hot or not…? Are you kidding!!? This is seriously gay and smokin’ hot. Nicely done, Philadelphia! You have not […]


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 […]


In which The Gay Recluse holds a contest. Sort of. Today we received this submission from Ed, a reader in Murray Hill who writes: Dear Gay Recluse: Since you launched your competition I have kept my eye open for hot gay statues in Murray Hill, which is my neighborhood (32nd and Lexington, to be exact). […]


In which The Gay Recluse — with help from our United Kingdom correspondent, The London Eye — examines life abroad (instead of just dreaming about it all the time). Today, this exclusive analysis from The London Eye: “These [statues of Antony Gormley] seem to be naked, and possibly gay, but not necessarily hot …” (Photo […]


In which The Gay Recluse runs a contest. Sort of. We are extremely pleased to announce that we’ve already received our first hot-gay-statue submission, from Andrew of 801a.info, who tells us: “This is in Washington D.C., directly across from the White House. The pictures could be taken to look more salacious, I guarantee.” Really? We’re […]
