    Thanks so much for this posting, Johnny. I remember once being caught in a traffic jam in a taxi in front of Maple Leaf Gardens. I asked the cabbie if there was a hockey game on (this was back in the ’90s when the Leafs still played there). But the crowd didn’t look like a hockey crowd: too many girls, a lot of fey young men. “Na, no game tonight,” the gruff cabbie said. “Think maybe figure skating. Phh… figure skating…”
    I steeled myself for a possible anti-fey, anti-figure skating, possibly homophobic rant. “I can’t be bothered with figure skating anymore,” said the cabbie, “not since Toller Cranston retired. Now there was a true artist.”
    I guess I was the one pre-judging somebody.
    Toller Cranston: What a force for the fey arts. No one like him.

    I remember he was once a judge on some sort of beauty pageant, all the other judges had stupid and almost sexist questions for the contestants but Toller’s questions were very intelligent and informed.

    Oh my! His house makes you look like a minimalist John. Take it as a challenge!

    Anyone can do porn but it’s your special eye that always brings me to Sissydude. Thank you!
