Social justice, arts and politics, life in New York City

Strolling the streets of Boystown

Arrived in Chicago yesterday to visit my friend Scott and eventually attend the wedding of the great poet P.F. Potvin (he and his bride Honor are hosting a Roaring 20’s Reception that I’m looking forward to).

How young we look! Alden\'s house in Ptown, 2005Last night, Scott showed me around his hood, Boystown, and we had a fantastic dinner at this hipster place called Ping Pong. I love the fact that the place was hopping, and that there were as many lesbians as there were gay men. Scott and I noted that in the Boston gay community, everything seems more segregated and less friendly. Maybe this is a generalization, but seems to hold some truth. Are people as approachable in Boston as they are here in the Midwest?
