My latest photo essay — the first in quite a while — is now online!:

Up Your Alley Fair, San Francisco, July 26, 2015

While this new report covers all aspects of this year’s “Up Your Alley” fetish street fair, I pay special attention to a bizarre fad sweeping the gay underground: “puppy play,” or pretending to be a dog during sadomasochistic group sex romps.

Up Your Alley was teeming with men not only dressed as dogs (or a least a fetishistic approximation of caninehood), but also behaving as dogs.

Why? Read the report to find out!

    If the Founding Fathers could see this…From a once proud city to this…can things get any lower? Does San Fransicko hold a fair for excrement eating and fecal loving fags yet? If they do not how can they really call themselves Progressive….hello

    I was quite surprised to find a photo of my ex-husband beating a black woman with a cat o’ Nine Tails. He never tried that shit with me, and I’m happy about that — oy! I found it quite by accident, which means our daughters can, too. Ugh! I’m not looking forward to that conversation.

    The older I get, the more I sympathize with the God Hates Fags crowd.

    Anyway, I actually would like to buy you a brew and have some laughs if I ever make it back to the bay.

    oh shit, I think my last post didn’t save. Apologies, I’ll blame it on my horrible broken tablet.

    Anyway, this might be an odd bit of fan mail, but you have pics of me going back over 10 years from everywhere from folsom to protest marches. While I’m quite sure we don’t see eye to eye politically, I have always appreciated the quality of and composition of your shots and writing. Indybay can suck a dick in terms of good shots. And you shamed the RCP for being anti-semetic drones, which warmed the cockles of my heart.

    .I’m not sure if you recall the website Encyclopedia Dramatica, it was a very anti PC and anti SJW parody wiki with tongue firmly planted in cheek in the spirit of the Devils Dictionary with a bit more spite and bile. Many of us who ran it in day to day operations cracked up at your writing and passed around posts playing a game of “spot a sysop in a compromising position” since many of us lived in the greater sf bay area. I was trying to get a formal invite extended to you to write some humor/satire columns but a key person died and the owner of the site lost her stomach for the game and quit, so it fell through. c’est la vie.

    Anyway, if you can’t take a minute to pause and laugh at your self you need to re-evaluate your life priorities. I just wanted to send you a begrudging and belated job well done. :)

    Dear Zombie:

    In case no one had pointed this out already, the “M” logo you were talking about on the “cum pigs” tee-shirt is for Magnet, the gay men’s health clinic in the Castro. So: “Magnet loves cum pigs.”
