I never expected to be around this long. Pure luck. I’m proud to be a contributing photographer on this intense, difinitive documentary of the “AIDS years”.

But, You’re Not Gay, Are You? SF Pride 2012

Youre not gay are you pride 2012 26431711_324945921325726_5713852386963881984_n

This gorgeous man was walking arm-in-arm with an attractive lady friend at gay pride 2012.

There were several other women with them, so I asked the entire group if they would pose for a snapshot.

The women were delighted, and quite rambunctious if not inebriated.

After about a dozen shots, I summoned the nerve to ask “the handsome man” for a few more shots by himself.

Only briefly hesitant, he stepped right up to the challenge, his rowdy posse cheering him on.

He put his hat and sunglasses on, but I guess that wasn’t what I was focusing on.

This image is heavily altered. I had almost as much fun manipulating it as when I originally took the photo.

You can see the original unaltered version, and hundreds more like him in my virtual gallery:

It started as keyword research for my photo expose on Gigante SF, Frisco Robbie’s Sunday weekly Latin hip hop and go go romp and stomp at Q-Bar in the Castro, SF.

Two hours later and I’m still scouring Instagram and drooling on all the eye candy that came up on that one search! I’ll share a summary of the research at the end of the post.

Meanwhile, here’s my favorite top ten:
