I decided to do a long weekend in Chicago. Summertime in Chicago is amazing, the boys are beautiful, nice and the scene is to die. You can tell when I have visited your town cause there are clues everywhere. I spent some time yesterday postering up the gayborhood of Boystown in Chicago. The most fun gay neighborhoods that I know. The famous North Halstead Street is where it is at and it is the capitol of Boy Butter in Chicago.

Every Summer I conduct a lone marathon swim across some large body of water somewhere around the world and raise money through sponsorship for my favorite charities. This is my fourth annual marathon swim for charity and this year, on Sept 18th, I will be swimming a 7-mile (11.25 km) non-stop, round trip marathon swim across the Boulder Basin of Lake Mead from Nevada to Arizona directly across from the world famous Hoover Dam. For this reason my marathon swim is called Hoover Dam This is a Long Swim.
I am asking my friends, loved ones or any supporter to sponsor my swim with a donation of at least $30 or more. We will collect all the funds and distribute them to SAGE. Every donation is eligible for a tax deduction.
SAGE (Services and Advocacy for Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Elders) was established in 1978 and is the world’s oldest and largest non-profit agency dedicated to serving and advocating for LGBT older adults.

"The New Colossus" is a sonnet by Emma Lazarus (1849–1887), written in 1883 and, in 1903, engraved on a bronze plaque and mounted inside the Statue of Liberty.
The New Colossus - Emma Lazarus
Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
"Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries she
With silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"

Yesterday Brendan, myself and some friends went to "Oasis" an annual summer benefit for the Ali Forney Center, a social services organization in NYC whose mission is to protect LGBTQ youth from the harm of homelessness, and to support them in becoming safe and independent as they move from adolescence to adulthood by providing housing, food, employment assistance and mental treatment. The benefit brought out many well to do and some famous Gays and some well known drag queens from RuPaul's Drag Race, Pandora Boxx and Carmen Carrera. The event held at the beautiful Bowery Hotel, featuring a popular open bar, music, live entertainment and a silent auction.

A great new photo taken by Donna Feldman on location in the scenic hills of the Santa Monica mountains in Calabasas, CA has hit the streets of New York City. The new banner is already causing a bit of a stir with the patrons of the Gym bar next door, who always appreciate a new window display to walk by or smoke in front of. The permanent Boy Butter rotating window display at the Blue Dvd adult store in Chelsea is making this sex store just a little bit sexier : )

My cute little buddy and first floor neighbor, Seamus Franck and I hang out a couple times a month and take a walk or go out and explore Manhattan, especially in the summertime. He is a great little explorer cause he is always up for a little sunshine, a little stroller, a little playground and alot of fun. Today we visited the The Highline Park famous new city park that runs through our neighborhood, Chelsea. The High Line is a New York City park that is an elevated railroad line that runs from West 12th Street up along the West side to 30th Street it has been redesigned and planted as a beautiful aerial greenway, which is the most unique and beautiful park to visit in Manhattan right now. I took some photos of today's adventure with Famous Seamus.
Seamus and I are ready to stroll
Arrived at the Highline and we are already admiring the scenery.
So many beautiful accents to the park
Seamus took this photo, not bad huh?
Seamus loves to point out the train tracks embedded in the walkway garden.
Nice views of the street below
Seamus loves these flowers, so do I. Lets take a closer look.

Our beach house in Fire Island had a 4th of July bash that rocked.
I would describe the rager that ensued but a picture and some videos are worth a thousand words.
