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).
Last 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?
