Ever Wonder Why Gay People Are So "Gay"?
If you've ever been fortunate enough to be among a gathering of gay people, especially when they are on vacation, you'll notice one thing:
They are VERY GAY!
Look in vain and you'll rarely see a face that doesn't have a mile wide smile. One would think with all the obstacles thrown at gay men (more than gay women, let's be real here), there would be a lot of sadness and long faces, not so.
Check out this video of the 2011 Provincetown Carnival in Provincetown, Massachusetts. Lots and lots of happy faces here folks.
Remember our Bloggerpalooza last year in Lewes? Any sad faces? No ma'am! Big smiles abounded.
What is it with gay people that when they get together, even if they're not camping it up (which is a lot of fun but we don't do THAT all the time), we always have a LOT OF FUN. When is the last straight party or get together you've been to that you've seen these many smiles and just a total abandon of good times?
The Provincetown Carnival was an event that began after I stopped visiting Provincetown in the early 80's. Back then we had our daily afternoon Tea Dance at the Boatslip. Back in my day we didn't have iPhones where we could take an instant video. You know if I had one I would be posting those videos now! Here's what I find interesting about this video that I pulled from YouTube, NOTHING HAS CHANGED! This is the daily afternoon Tea Dance (from 4 pm to 6 pm) at the Boatslip exactly as I remembered it and participated. Yes, there really are that many men there. Does it look crowded? I never had a problem body surfing this crowd.
By the way, how long do you think it will be before Rehoboth Beach has it's own GAY CARNIVAL?
