PLUS OR MINUS ARE WE READY FOR AN INSTANT HIV TEST THAT WE CAN BUY AT WALGREENS?

y friend Gene from Hong Kong has a long-distance boyfriend here in New York, and before Gene’s most recent visit, he sent a special text message in advance: a photo of his rapid HIV test result, which was negative. The thing that was different about this test, however, was that it was done at home, bought over the counter at a Hong Kong pharmacy just as if it were a pregnancy test. This soon may be possible in the United States. Recently, a 17-member FDA advisory panel voted unanimously that the agency should allow the OraQuick In-Home HIV Test—an oral swab that displays results within 20 minutes—to be sold in retail stores. The FDA will announce its decision later this year. During a routine, free rapid HIV test at Callen-Lorde Community Health Center this week, I asked my counselor her thoughts about it. She said that a number of people have come in for second opinions/tests after they bought an inhome rapid HIV test through eBay and were dubious of or freaked out by the results. She thought that a rapid home test was a bad idea for now, because many people would not be emotionally prepared for a positive result (some are gen-

G we can bareback!” permission slip, the test could be used that way. Guys who want to have unprotected sex after hooking up on Grindr, at the Boiler Room or wherever may just swing by Duane Reade, grab a couple of tests, and go bareback-bonkers if the results are negative—despite the fact that up to 90 days are required to show a positive result after an exposure to HIV. Then again, it could stop some infections from happening, and is much more reliable than just, “Oh, sure, I’m negative.” And it could be what finally gets a few guys I’ve met who have never been tested to learn their status—preferably with a knowledgeable, comforting friend in the room. Actually, according to one article, the FDA panel “stressed the importance of a toll-free number to put those who test positive in touch with counseling and medical care.” Add an iPhone app, and maybe we’re good to go.

Too many factors can screw it up. “In a clinical setting they are better off,” she opined. Indeed, trials and studies conducted by the test’s makers, OraSure Technologies, Inc., showed that the home test is only 93% accurate (in clinical trials it’s 99.8% accurate giving HIV-negative ones). Eight out of 114 people who were actually HIV-positive reported HIV-negative results. While my Hong Kong friend didn’t send along the photo as a sort of “Hey,

ONLY A TRUE GOLDEN GIRLS FAN would go so far as to get a Bea Arthur tattoo on his arm. But Eliot Glazer is such a fan. The 28-year-old writer (he’s responsible for pop culture blog Vulture’s addictive clickables) even took to the stage last week to defend the ladies against their possibly campier competition, Designing Women(it’s his boyfriend’s favorite), at a GG/DW trivia night at Brooklyn’s Bell House. “Both shows were campy, but in a comedically sophisticated, thoughtful, heartfelt way that made so many [gay men] feel safe,”he explains of their impact. So as an Internet aficionado and contributor (he writes and stars in the web series It Gets Betterish and created the viral video “Shit New Yorkers Say”), what does the Chelsea resident think it takes to go viral?“Good timing, relevant subject matter and an irreverent angle. And cats.”

Everything Bea Arthur did—every tiny gesture, every eye roll and every well-timed verbal zinger—was flawless, even when she was reading cue cards. But I think what was most fearless about her was that she let the writers exploit her size for jokes, which only made her cooler.

Were you surprised at the success of “Shit New Yorkers Say”? I thought people would like it, but I had no idea it would do what it did. We were the bumper for the 11pm news on NBC, which meant I technically shared airtime with Tina Fey. Mission: accomplished.

GAYS EATING COOKIES? It’s happening in Hell’s Kitchen these days. And despite what many a low-fat, low-carb dieter might say, 28-year-old baker Zachary Schmahl knows homos love to eat treats. “Everyone has to reward themselves once in a while and no one knows that better than the gays,” he jokes, following the response to the new storefront for his one-year-old business, Schmackary’s (362 W 45th St, Schmackarys.com). “[A store] seemed like the next logical step for Schmackary’s. The online business was growing so fast and I knew Hell’s Kitchen was hurting for cookies,” he explains of its inception. The Nebraska native never set out to be known as “the cookie guy,” but after friends urged him to explore the potential of a life-long passion, his web business for Schmackary’s was born. Since then, the brand has become known for its creative offerings like the Maple Bacon cookie with candied bacon, maple syrup and toffee bits. “We are taking cookies to the next level,” he explains. “Just like the cupcake and doughnut world did a few years back, we are taking the level of sophistication up a few notches.” But even Schmahl will admit it’s has been difficult to set Schmackary’s apart from the deluge of artisanal sweets New York has to offer. “It’s a foodie’s paradise,” he admits. “If you’re going to do something, you have to do it well and you have to be innovative.” It’s why the store is expanding from cookies into other treats, like brownies, cookie bars, ice cream sandwiches and Schmack Pops, as well as a full line of coffees, milkshakes and local milks. As for getting the gays to eat sweets again? “They are all quick to tell me how I’m going to ruin Broadway Bares this year. But I say ‘Work hard. Play hard.’”

Gay fests, now on Your TV COULD VIDEO ON DEMAND BE THE FUTURE FOR GAY FILMMAKING?

espite my best intentions and plans, I lamed out of attending any screenings or events at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival. Yet not all was lost: a number of its films were made available through video-on-demand (VOD), so 40 million homes nationwide could suddenly play a mini TFF in their own living rooms with help from iTunes, Amazon, Vudu and Samsung Media Hub. The same goes for a growing number of theatrical releases these days, which in some cases precede their theatrical runs or debut concurrently. Indeed, on June 1 two gay-interest titles made their premieres via VOD. Loose Cannons, a comedy about an Italian gay man who plans to come out to his suffocating family but finds his plan derailed when his older brother comes out first and causes dad to have a heart attack, and Sexual Chronicles of a French Family, involving a frisky clan whose 21-year-old son is bisexual and loves threeways. The latter opens at IFC Center the same day. Ditto for home video releases. Wolfe Video’s Joe + Belle, a comedic lesbian road/caper movie in the vein of Something Wild/Thelma & Louise, went VOD on June 5, a full month before its July DVD release. On-demand movies’ pluses are multiple, from avoiding typical movie theater annoyances—crying babies, texting douchebags—to the ability to pause and, as in many cases, the potential to see it first. (2011 awards bait Melancholia was made available via VOD a month in advance of its theatrical release). And, this part is important folks, you are supporting the indie distributors and filmmakers who can’t afford mainstream distribution in the process. That said, the filmmakers and stars won’t be showing up in your living room afterwards to conduct a Q&A as they would at most film festival premieres (and boy are some of those sessions lively!). In the cases of queer films, that sense of

California is one step closer to banning “ex-gay” reparative therapy for minors. The State Senate voted in favor of a bill that would ban mental health professionals from attempting to alter any minor’s sexual orientation.

A report released last week by the National Coalition of Anti-Violence Projects revealed that the number of hate crimes committed last year against LGBT people was the highest it’s been since they started tallying attacks in 1998.

DC Comics announced that their much-hyped gay hero is the original GREEN LANTERN, who lives on an alternate version of Earth.

community and social interaction that’s one of the most critical and essential elements of why gay film festivals exist. But as we loose the independent stamp of landmark gay festivals like New York’s Newfest, which merged earlier this year with LA’s Outfest—it is important we don’t also loose our access to gaythemed films and directors. Afterall, we can’t all afford a flight to California just to watch Keep the Lights On or Struck By Lighting, both of which anchor Outfest

Meanwhile, on our Earth, One Million Moms’ anti-Green Lantern Facebook posts were met with so much pro-gay support the hate group shut down its profile.

A RAINBOW OVER BROOKLYN PRIDE IS RESTRUCTURING THE WAY PRIDE WORKS IN KINGS COUNTY AND BRINGING THE PARTY TO THE MARKING OUR TERRITORY The rainbow flag above Borough Hall last year; (below) Gay Men of African Descent in the Twilight Parade; (inset) Ginger’s bar along the parade route in 2011

hese days, the undeniable cool factor of many neighborhoods in Kings County has meant that any discussion of the city’s most populous borough is peppered with comparisons to what’s long been considered the borough’s big brother: Manhattan. “It’s so big and so huge that the crowds aren’t able to get as close,” says Mickey Heller, Brooklyn Pride co-chair, of Manhattan’s annual Pride March. The comparisons are more friendly sibling rivalry than serious competition, but it’s helped raise the eastern borough’s standard for Pride celebrations without losing the neighborhood feel Brooklyn gays have come to expect from the Park Slope parade and festival. “We have a lot of great or-

T

ganizations that are coming with us,” Heller, a Prospect Heights resident, explains. He says that this year the national organization Condom Nation, which has an 18-wheeler truck traveling all around the country, will be part of the Twilight Parade. That mix of down-to - ear th neighborhood events coupled with slightly larger-scale organizations is part of a renewal that Brooklyn Pride is going through this year. “Every Pride group, after a while, it sort of gets like, ‘Oh well, it’s sort of the same thing.’ So we’re rebuilding,” explains Jerry Allred, a founding member of Brooklyn Pride. Sixteen years ago, Allred says the Brooklyn Pride board of directors was a diverse mix of folks that represented the varied neighborhoods of the borough,

BOROUGH HALL BOROUGH’S MANY GAY NEIGHBORHOODS. but over the years that changed. “When it was set up sixteen years ago we had everyone in there—men, women, transgendered, black, white, green, Asian—whatever, we had it,” he says. This year, he points out that the addition of Heller as co-chair has marked a return to that diversity. “It just needed a push,” which he says has been seriously facilitated by political support from people like Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz. “We’re the only government building with the gay flag above the building. This is something Marty’s been doing since he came into office,” he says. In a borough that’s just as easily characterized by the trendy cool of the fertile crescent of nabes on its western waterfront as it is by the industrial ’hoods to the east and strollers near Prospect Park, part of the challenge of putting together a Pride celebration has been representing every community equally. This year, especially, they’re working hard to do just that. “We’re reaching out to a lot of different organizations of color and other organizations just to become more inclusive, and want to feel that whole Brooklyn spirit,” Heller says. “I’m particularly excited

about the fact that Brooklyn Pride seems to be expanding beyond its attachment area of Park Slope,” notes Robert West, a volunteer with Brooklyn Pride who helped organize the June 7 tribute party and fundraiser for LGBT icon and current Brooklyn resident Stormé DeLarverie. Even neighboring borough Pride organization Queens Pride is getting in on the action. Last week Brooklyn Pride helped Queens celebrate its 20th year in Jackson Heights and this week Queens is returning the favor. “[What I said] many, many years ago was, ‘If Queens can do it, then we know Brooklyn can,’” laughs Allred. Allred is quick to note that the Internet has been a major catalyst for Brooklyn Pride’s move towards inclusion. “We’re using that much more now, because everyone moves around,” he says. Heller reassures, “You’ll always have people who just want to do things; it’s our nature to want to have a good time.” —Alex Erikson Brooklyn Pride Twilight Parade on Fifth Ave (from 14th St to Union St), Park Slope, June 9 at 7:30pm; free.

“I used to act out scenes from BEWITCHED, I DREAM OF JEANIE and FLASH GORDON when I was like four or five—didn’t think anything of it. I joined the school choir and the band and got cast in numerous school plays and yet it didn’t occur to me that I wasn’t straight. In band class during my freshman year of high school, I couldn’t help staring at the tuba player—a senior! I’ve always liked older men. [He was a] nice-looking guy with black hair and a moustache (at 17!) and wore sunglasses indoors, and I couldn’t help but get aroused when talking to John the football captain during biology class—and yet I was oblivious. It wasn’t until I was a senior in college when I discovered I had a crush—and sexual feelings for— a male friend (who was also gay). Then I knew! I was 22.”

HOW TO MAKE THE MOST TIPS AT BROADWAY BARES WEEK

D.I.Y.

BROADWAY BARES VETS EXPLAIN HOW TO MAKE THE BIG BUCKS DURING ROTATION. n 1992, at the original Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS fundraiser Broadway Bares at Splash, the rotation for tips was born. Over two decades later, the “rotation” portion of the evening where the barely clad boys jump off stage to carouse with the crowd is still a staple of the event. The many volunteer Broadway chorus boys work the room, corralling cash for BC/EFA’s cause. To help the BB rookies beat last year’s $1 million-plus night, we asked some of the veterans how they make the big tips. —AE

I

Broadway Bares at Roseland Ballroom, 239 W 52nd St (btwn Broadway/Eighth Ave), June 17 at 9:30pm and midnight; $60–$750. Visit broadwaybares.com for more info.

BRANdON RUBENdALL “Keep rotating. All the dancers want a little face time during rotation. Don’t hog the good spot. When you hear rotate... rotate!”

ANThONY CEFALA “Location, location, location. The closer you can get yourself down towards the front of the stage the better. That’s where the people are.”

AdAM PERRY

TIPS FOR TIPPERS

“Although you may be wearing next to nothing, eye contact goes a long way. Most importantly, have fun! It’s all for a really important cause.”

HEADED TO BROADWAY BARES TONIGHT? LEARN THE RIGHT WAYS TO TIP AND MAYBE YOU’LL GET A TIP OF YOUR OWN!

IAN PAGET “Get creative with your costumes and have something to give away. I’ve seen candy in the past. It’s an attention grabber. Oh, and sit-ups. Lots of sit-ups.”

EddIE RABON “[Wear] knee pads…[Rotate] with a buddy so you can help each other get down to crowd level without falling off the stage, wearing something like a speedo, which will do better at holding in those dollars (and, god forbid, change) than a jockstrap.” 34 JUNE 8, 2012

Reed Kelly

REED KELLY: “Come ready to have a blast! Be ready to get sweaty and worked up and also make sure you bring a lot of bills to tip your favorite dancers…the bigger the bills the better because it all goes to an amazing cause.” BRANDON RUBENDALL: “Keep it classy! Yes, this is a burlesque show, but remember, we are not real strippers. It’s all for a good cause, folks. Have fun with your bill placement, but don’t cross that line.” ANDY MILLS: “If you have a Benjamin let me know. There is a lot going on and often I have no idea what number is in the corner of that bill.”

FOLSOM STREET ESSENTIALS

FOLSOM STREET EAST CO-EXECUTIVE PRODUCER FIL VOCASEK ON THE LEATHER/FETISH STREET FAIR’S MUST-SEE MOMENTS.

une 17 marks the 16th year Folsom Street East will host the East Coast’s take legendary San Francisco kink event—that this year will benefit The Anti-Violence Project, The National Coalition for Sexual Freedom and The LGBT Center. “The leather [and] fetish community is alive and well in New York,” explains Fil Vocasek, co-executive producer of the event. The 32-year-old Brooklyn resident says that while Giuliani and company may have left many of the city’s leather bars closed in the wake of their “cleanup,” there’s still plenty to do for fans of the freaky, of which FSE is a major anchor. “Folsom Street East is one of the only events of its kind in [New York], and it is one of very few chances that kinksters and sexual minorities get to come out en masse onto the streets and celebrate the diverse scope of our community,” he explains. “Anyone who complains about the scene is not paying attention.” We asked

Fresh Meat In previous years Will Clark has hit the stage as the day’s emcee. He’s back again, joined by local cabaret performer Xavier “Mamma” Rice. And that’s not all that’s fresh this year. “We’ve got a new co-host, new exhibitors, new stage events and lots of new kinksters in attendance,” Vocasek explains.

Feeling Free “One of the really excellent traditions we have at the street festival is handing out the Sexual Freedom Award,” says Vocasek. “The award goes to one or more persons each year in recognition of an unwavering voice and dedication in working on the many issues of importance to sexual minorities.” Previous award winners include leather historian John Weis, SM Policy Reform Project organizer Susan Wright and attorney Diana Adams. Today they’ll announce this year’s winner, whose favorite charity will receive the award’s cash prize.

The fair kicks off at 2pm, and by 3pm the T stage show is underway, with a lineup ON’ of performers that includes the likes of DMISS S!

contest, hosted by the gorgeous Dallas Dubois.” There’ll be six couples, six pies and a dozen happy men with whipped cream and piecrust in all sorts of fun places, he says. “And thousands of horny revelers egging them on.”

WHAT HE COULD LIVE WITHOUT

“Hopefully we lose the creep-o fundamentalist haters who like to come, get a self-loathing boner and then trash us on their blogs after the fact because it’s not their idea of what a Father’s Day brunch should look like,” Vocasek says. Folsom Street East on 28th St (btwn 10th/11th Aves), June 17 from 2pm–7pm; $10. Visit folsomstreeteast.org for more info.

THE BREAK-UP Joel Kinnaman and Greta Gerwig in Lola Versus

Reel Love Lola Versus Time Investment: 86 min. Return on Investment: 21 min. ith a beguiling title, New York locations and trendy NYU-bred cast and crew, Lola Versus (Fox Searchlight) at first feels like it might be different, but pretty soon it becomes obvious: there’s absolutely nothing new here, and instead of improving on the excessively tedious rom-com format (replete with the kooky sidekick and inaccessibly perfect man), Lola never quite knows what it wants to be. Much of that ambiguity comes from the bewildering and awkward-to-a-fault performance of Greta Gerwig as Lola, because it’s hard to tell: is she having a good time getting her heart broken? You might think so, since her slew of overly emotive grimaces and spazzy smiles never quite make the connection to true pain (or any emotion, for that matter). The other characters don’t fare much better, since the fiancé (Joel Kinnaman) who dumps her in the opening seems equal parts gay and boring, and her filterless best friend (Zoe Lister-Jones, who co-wrote and produced) is like a floating circus show present only for slapstick purposes. The writing is jaunty at best, with entire scenes built around specific zingers and Gen X references like Margaret Cho or Ani DiFranco (the latter is part of one of the film’s only amusing interludes—a weirdo sex scene with the hilarious Ebon Moss-Bachrach). In the end, Lola Versus lacks any true urgency, and the thought occurs that if breaking up were this easy and fun, then why is it such a big deal for Lola in the first place? —Dan Heching

Marina Abramovic: The Artist Is Present Time Investment: 106 min. Return on Investment: 90 min. ike many New Yorkers, I heard the press coverage of 65-year-old performance artist Marina Abramovic’s 2010 MoMA retrospective, in which visitors had the opportunity to sit opposite her for whatever length they chose. After seeing Matthew Akers’ impressive debut feature, Marina Abramovic: The Artist Is Present (Music Box Films), I regret mightily not venturing into that seat myself. Abramovic is an incredibly vibrant and striking woman, a “provocateur” who’s clearly had more than titillation on her mind during her storied career. Her impressive physicality has lent itself to any number of strange ministrations in the name of art—from self-flagellation to a three-month trek across the Great Wall of

L

DON’T LOOK NOW Marina Abramovic in The Artist Is Present

China to meet her longtime partner and collaborator, Ulay. Their former romance—and present emotional connection—forms the emotional backbone of an arc that also includes the legions of visitors who gazed into Abramovic’s eyes during the three-month show and were touched by her on multiple levels. Akers’ film is exceedingly well made, with excellent cinematography and editing; a filmmaker could be excused for framing this compelling material in barebones fashion, but the movie boasts its own, un-showy artistry. The subject has made a career out of exposing her vulnerabilities to audiences, and she allows the cameras the same unfettered access. Watching The Artist Is Present gives you the sense that knowing its star in real life would be a terrific privilege, and that this accomplished character study is the next best thing. —Justin Lockwood

Curtain Up

THEATER

NEXTMAGAZINE.COM

By David Hurst n the eve of Broadway’s biggest night, the Tony Awards on June 10, we take a look at who will win— and who really deserved to. PICKS: Best Play: OTHER DESERT CITIES: Jon Robin Baitz’s searing family drama has lost some of its momentum in the race since last fall, but it deserves to win for both its insightful writing and superb acting. Best Musical: NEWSIES: it’s not great art but it’s good, old-fashioned entertainment boasting a rousing score and a starmaking, Tony-nominated performance by its hunky lead, Jeremy Jordan. Best Revival of a Play: DEATH OF A SALESMAN: a riveting, heartbreaking production of one of the greatest plays ever written. Best Revival of a Musical: FOLLIES: the original still remains definitive but this shattering revival of one of Stephen Sondheim’s greatest masterpieces was the season’s musical highlight.

O

PANS: Best Play: CYBOURNE PARK: an overrated play posing as a meditation on race relations. Best Musical: ONCE: a charming film turned into a pretentious, overblown stage musical with one great song. NICE WORK IF YOU CAN GET IT: an uninspired, lackluster bore even with the divine Kelli O’Hara and Estelle Parsons. Best Revival of a Play: MASTER CLASS: a Tony nomination? Really? Tyne Daly is a wonderful actress, but Maria Callas she

42 JUNE 8, 2012

ain’t. And don’t get me started on the play. Best Revival of a Musical: JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR: some great singing yes, but the acting, staging and set design of this overly praised revival are dreadful. Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role in a Musical: Tracie Bennett in END OF THE RAINBOW: she’s a great performer, and likely to take home the Tony, but Bennett gets it all wrong as Judy Garland in this hateful piece of grandstanding exploitation. Elizabeth A. Davis in ONCE: who was she in the show? Exactly. They didn’t nominate Elaine Paige in Follies but Davis is giving a Tonyworthy performance in Once? I don’t think so. EGREGIOUSLY OVERLOOKED: SEMINAR: this examination of writers and their craft had its problems, but it should have been nominated over the psychosexual babble of VENUS IN FUR. GODSPELL: why didn’t this clever and entertaining revival get more love for its talented cast and Michael Holland’s terrific orchestrations? Yes, it’s preachy but that score is gold and its crucifixion is far better than Superstar’s. Patrick Page in SPIDER-MAN, TURN OFF THE DARK: yes, the show is dreadful but Page is pretty terrific as the Green Goblin.

Dan Bucatinsky

Out Words By Jameson Fitzpatrick

Dispatches from the Frontline of Gay Parenthood wenty minutes into my chat with Dan Bucatinsky about his new memoir, Does This Baby Make Me Look Straight? (Touchstone Books), I’m convinced: the world would be a better—and funnier—place if everyone had a dad like him. Does This Baby…?, Bucatinsky’s first book, is a collection of 27 short comic essays about his and husband Don Roos’ experiences as parents to their two young children, a girl and a boy. Whether he’s recounting his daughter’s discovery of her “front tushy” (her words), the jealousy that his kids’ adoration of his husband sometimes inspires in him or how he agonized about whether or not to come out to the nannies he befriended at the local playground, Bucatinsky’s stories manage to be at once touching and laugh-out-loud funny. (Seriously, be prepared for a public guffaw or two if you take this book on the subway). If you recognize his name, it’s probably because Bucatinsky has had a long career making people laugh in the film and television industry: he wrote and starred in the 2001 romantic comedy All Over the Guy, as well as producing (and costarring in) the classic 2005 series The Comeback and the recent Web Therapy, both with Lisa Kudrow. Though he’d spent the last 10 years living “in the world of fiction,” when he was approached to be part of a performance series in Los Angeles called Afterbirth: Stories You Won’t Read in a Parenting Magazine, Bucatinsky says he saw “an opportunity to write from a completely different place—from the gut, just the truth.” The stories in Does This Baby…? evolved out of the monologues he performed for Afterbirth over the course of four years. “Two things happened: I had been sucking in my gut for the better part of my adult life and I finally put on some loose pants and emotionally burned my man-Spanx. At the same time, I was craving to put something out there that Don and I had not read before.” Indeed, Bucatinsky’s candid, hilarious stories about gay parenting fill a void in publishing, continuing a story Dan Savage began with his memoir of adoption, The Kid. I can tell if I’ve struck a nerve when I ask whether Bucatinsky was at all worried about how his children might

react to some of the embarrassing stories in the book when they get older. “I lost sleep over it,” he says. “I went back and forth…In the end, I saw what potential value there could be in communicating this way with a larger group of people about what it feels like, in the trenches, as a parent—when you question yourself and when you question your kids, when you find things adorable and when you find things disgusting—which you can’t do without total honesty.” Of course, Bucatinsky’s love for his kids shines through on every page—even when he’s discussing the intricacies of their bodily functions. His advice to first-time dads? “There’s no end to the absolute wonder of the wet wipe…Put them everywhere.” N Dan Bucatinsky recommends: The Kid by Dan Savage, Barrel Fever by David Sedaris, Rockabye: From Wild to Child by Rebecca Woolf

Bookmark duardo C. Corral’s recent debut, Slow Lightning (Yale university Press), won him the prestigious Yale Series of Younger Poets award last year—and for good reason. Steeped in the surreal tradition of Federico Garcia Lorca, Corral’s work takes in ranchera songs, Frida Kahlo and the landscape of the Southwest to reflect on Chicano identity and deliver lyrical, inventive poems as musical as they are striking on the page. Not to be missed. American Boys (Floating Wolf Quarterly), a digital chapbook, is the first release from Alex Dimitrov, the buzzed-about young poet. The eight poems, which serve as an extended love song to the great gay Allen Ginsberg, are interspersed with screencaps from Grindr, Facebook and text messages, lending it a unique visual texture and a refreshing sense of humor. Originally self-published in 1997, Emanuel Xavier’s newly re-released Pier Queen (Rebel Satori Press) is a brave, confessional book recounting his experiences as a teen hustler on New York streets. The poems, composed in language accessible to any reader, demonstrate a moving sense of healing and an impressive grace. In this edition, they’re exquisitely paired with Richard Renaldi’s photographs of the West Side Piers.

NEXTMAGAZINE.COM

By Peter Sherwood hat opulent, over-the-top old war horse otherwise known as The Russian Tea Room (150 W 57th St, 212581-7100, RussianTeaRoomNYC.com) has been razed and built back up again at least twice over the years. There are scads of caviar to be had and, besides borscht, look for blinchik, crepes filled with seafood and drizzled with a lobster reduction, and veal chops in a seductive, brandied cream sauce. Naturally, RTR also serves High Tea from 2pm–4:30pm. A trip to Brooklyn will bring you to Café Glechik (3159 Coney Island Ave, 718-6160766, Glechik.com), and lead to cuisine from Odessa, Ukraine. Chopped herring, smoked mackerel, syrniki—cheese pancakes—and stuffed cabbage round out the appetizers; dumplings, pelmeni raviolis and hearty meat dishes flesh out the rest of the menu. Newcomer Nasha Rasha (4 W 19th St, 212-929-4444,

NashaRashaNYC.com) has it all, from sharing plates for nibbles to classic Russian entrées, an alluring vodka bar and caviar and blini indulgences for the more moneyed amongst us. It’s a Soviet snap to get your drink on at the Russian Vodka Room (265 W 52nd St, 212-307-5835, RussianVodkaRoom.com). As the name implies, it’s not entirely about the food although schnitzel, stroganoff and blintzes are on hand for the peckish. The Room boasts dozens of varieties of vodka. The specialties are house-made infusions, such as ginger or horseradish, or the sweeter apple & pomegranate, available as shots or poured into a selection of carafes. A piano player tickles the ivories in the lounge as patrons bend elbows and pickle themselves. Inspired by Stravinsky’s beautiful ballet of the same name, Firebird (365 W 46th St, 212-586-0244, FirebirdRestaurant.com) serves standard dishes with a few twists on Restaurant Row. The list of vod-

kas is extensive and reason enough to belly up to the bar while the historical ambience out of Tolstoy’s royal Russia in the grand dining rooms overrides the mostly moderate menu. Just come knowing that a gorgeous evening at this three-story townhouse will definitely set you back a few rubles. Grinnel caviar laces fantastic buckwheat blinis made tableside and layered with sour cream, sprinklings of egg and finely minced red onion. Redtinged gravlax salmon is pulled from cold waters and served with sweet beet and green tobiko caviar. Classic dishes such as Beef Stroganoff and Chicken Kiev are still being worked out in the kitchen. Imagine that your little Russian grandmamma had invited you into her elegant home for dinner and behold Mari Vanna (41 E 20th St, 212-7771955, MariVanna.ru), filled with mismatched plates, delicate linens and draping chandeliers. The Kiev dish fares much better here and is a focal point despite

their menu pointing out that it’s actually a French dish branded in 20th century New York for Eastern European immigrants. Show-stealing blinis are brushed with butter and sugar and topped with red caviar, and the fresh beet and vegetable salad. Smetannik with strawberries for dessert is a creamy, dreamy cloud and a must-try. Take advantage of the twocourse prix-fixe lunch for $24. Calvisius Caviar Lounge (58 E 58th St, 212-207-8222, CalvisiusCaviar.com) is an exercise in grossly excessive indecency. Wrapped up like a little box of chocolates, this 11-seater is situated in the Four Seasons Hotel. Malossol (which translates to “less salt”) caviar headlines and of course goes down very well with icy shots of Stolichnaya Elit. The Italian Way appetizer features 10 grams of Oscietra Classic caviar, grown wild in the Caspian Sea and served in a martini glass with warm potato purée. Toast it all with bubbling flutes of Champagne! N

NEXTMAGAZINE.COM

HOW TO GET CLEAN SO YOU CAN GET DOWN AND DIRTY.

hether you’re a top, a bottom or versatile, you probably know or have learned, um, the hard way that bottoming requires preparation. Yet it never ceases to amaze me how often I meet sexually active gay men—especially young ones—who have never heard of using an anal douche or an enema to clean out before having anal sex. So if you’re one of those bottoms whose pre-penetration ritual involves nothing more than making sure you’re wearing your cutest underwear, this article is for you.

W

A REGuLAR COLON is a clean colon, so monitor your diet, especially during the days preceding planned sexual activity. Digestion takes anywhere from 24 to 72 hours depending on what you eat, so if you know Monday that you have a booty call Friday, don’t load up on steak, rice & beans or Indian food on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. POOP DOESN’T LIVE where you fuck; it just passes through. until you actually go to the bathroom, fecal matter is usually held deeper inside you (in your sigmoid colon) than where most anal sex will occur (in your rectum). So unless you’re getting fisted or trying to win an Olympic medal in Bottoming, a bowel movement followed by a basic cleansing of your rectum should suffice. OVER-THE-COuNTER disposable enemas (like Fleet brand) are affordable and easy to use. But if one enema doesn’t make you feel clean (the bottoms I surveyed like to do the douching/enema process anywhere from 10 to 20 times), a reusable anal douche system may be a better investment.

50 JUNE 8, 2012

DO NOT uSE douches designed for women, as the chemicals in women’s douches can be unnecessary irritants. Just because you call your hole a boy pussy doesn’t mean you should treat it like one. THERE IS A WIDE array of affordable anal irrigation products available on the market, from complex shower systems with hoses and valves, like the StreemMaster Hydra Premium Shower Douche (StreemMaster.com, $69.95) to small, discreet rubber-bulb-and-nozzle syringes. My favorite is the StreemMaster Hydra Elite Douche Bulb ($24.95). WITH A PuMP DOuCHE,you basically fill the bulb with water, attach the nozzle, insert it in your hole, squeeze the water up inside yourself, wait and expel the water into the toilet. Repeat this process until you’re satisfied with how clean you are. DOuCHING WITH WARM water is best. Some guys like a light saline solution. Adding soap is not a good idea, as it dries you out and can cause irritation. If you use tap water, be sure it is clean. So if, for example, you’re prepping for a wild night of sex in Brazil and you’re tap water is questionable, use bottled water. GIVE YOuRSELF PLENTY of time. First-time douchers, budget at least an hour of bathroom time. DO NOT DOuCHE after sex, especially if you have chosen not to use condoms, as an enema will push fluids like semen and blood farther up inside you. Inserting a nozzle post-sex can also cause additional abrasions to already-tender tissue.

Bottoms certainly have it harder than tops when it comes to sex, but developing an anal hygiene routine will give you the confidence that clean brings—and keep you from giving your top the shit end of the stick. N

HOT MESS

Soaked to the Core THIS ENEMA HORROR STORY TEACHES US “WHAT GOES IN MUST COME OUT.”

had a booty call up in the Bronx with this very aggressive top with about nine inches. So I needed to be really clean. I have this hose thing that hooks up to my shower that I use to take enemas. Well, I was in there for over an hour cleaning that girl out. Hey, I didn’t want to give him a shitty deal! When I was finished and dressed, I got on the D train and headed uptown. This lady came onto the train and wanted to sit right next to me, so I kinda shifted positions onto my other hip. That’s when I felt this gush of water come pouring out of me. My pants were soaked. Some of the water must have been hiding in some fold inside me. Honey, it was nasty. I could smell it and I’m sure everyone saw it when I got off at the next station. Now, I’m extra sure to get every drop of water out. I massage my intestines, lean to the sides, hell, I even do handstands sometimes.” N
