Love To Be Doing This Right About Now…

Today it got above 90 degrees F in San Francisco, a town where people melt on the sidewalks and call in sick if it gets above 78.

So here’s a fun little flashback, no, splashback to last spring at the Jomtien Complex. It’s an enclave of gay bars and cabarets in the town of Jomtien Beach, Thailand. It’s also during the Thai new year holiday of Songkran, a crazy water festival.

Enjoy the fun, and sign up to my jimslist newsletter to hear about future trips to the land of smiles, my latest photo exhibits, and other misadventures.

Coming To SF This July

Vintage Gay SF

“‘Black And White Nostalgia — Vintage Gay S.F.” is the working title for my upcoming photo exhibit; July 2019 at STRUT SF. Reception on Friday, July 12 from 8pm to 10pm.

Here’s a few teaser images, out of dozens under consideration for this show.

Castro Street Fair, 1990 ish. He was intimidating at first, but was happy to pose. I gave him my card, but never heard from him. A collector mentioned he may have made a few adult films. Anyone know who he is, leave a comment below?

The first ever “Up Your Alley” festival, on Ringold Alley, July 1985. These crazy queens were selling kisses and beer.

Consuela Del Rio, drag mother at the Black Rose, 1984. The Black Rose was a rough and tumble drag bar in the gritty Tenderloin. I felt safe because she took me under her wing, and nobody messed with Consuela.

I came across this historical gem, taken back in 1984. It’s Eric Pendigar, leather master and craftsman, alternative music dj, and a breathtaking example of manliness. This was at the first ever Folsom Street Fair.

Vintage Gay SF — Who Is He?

This image is from a gay pride parade around 1989 or 90. It’s one of dozens under consideration for two photo exhibits this summer, at the Harvey Milk Center in June, and at STRUT SF this July.

Intimidating at first, this tattood hunk of muscle was quite sweet in the end. He took my card but I never heard from him. Several collectors have suggested that he’s made a few adult films.

Waddaya think? Hot or not? Your type? Should I put his picture in the show? Know who he is, and where I could contact him these days?
