Put Some Gay in Your Day

Hey Kids-

So I just started writing for a new site called Gay List Daily. It's a swank e-publication that sends daily write ups to your inbox on people, places, and things you absolutely must know about. If you're in NYC, check it out and sign up at Gay List Daily. It's totally free (of course!)

If you don't live in NYC, check it out anyway. They have plans for global domination.

In addition to snarky fun daily write ups, they also do a weekly calendar. Below is what I wrote about for this weekend (it looks much better on their site!) Also, if you or your friends have a product or event to promote, let me know. I'll plug it if I can.

Sign up now--put some gay in your day!

Don’t Just Stay Cool, Be Cool!

The heat is on! Summer is here, and if you’re not already lying out on the beaches of Fire Island, then let us tempt you out of the house. So what if it’s hot? Some like it hot, and remember: You didn’t move to New York City to get intimate with your air conditioner.

Please Curb Your Dog!

Times Talks refuses to hush up!

I'd love to Put Some Gay in Your Day, but the boy never wrote me back. :-(

Meanwhile, I'll be putting lots of gay in my weekend. Off to Fire Island tonight! Toodles!
