NYT: The British fashion stylist IB Kamara, originally from Sierra Leone, and the South African photographer Kristin Lee-Moolman have collaborated on a project titled “2026,” which addresses heteronormative attitudes to self-expression through fashion. The photographs imagine what men’s wear may look like in 10 years, through the use of fabrics rescued from garbage bins and thrift shops in Johannesburg and made into contemporary garments.
“I wanted to create a utopia where you can be whatever you want to be, without emphasis on masculinity or sexuality,” Mr. Kamara said last week, as he put the finishing touches to the large-scale photographic prints of young African men in dresses now hanging from the walls of Somerset House, one of Britain’s grandest palaces. “I wanted men, in particular black men, to just be able to be and breathe like every other type of man has been able to breathe for centuries, without the pressure and policing of black masculinity lingering over them.”

Sissydude totally got a boner when he read this Jake quote @ The Chicago Tribune:
“I’m extremely hairy,” the Cubs ace says in the annual photo spread featuring athletes in the nude. “It pretty much connects from the top of my head to my toes with a nice upper body sweater/track jacket type of thing. I’m shaved right now. The chest is good, the back is pretty solidly shaven.”
I think the beard plays a slight factor to my presence on the mound. It’s kind of part of the persona now. Everyone in Chicago embraced it, so I got to keep it. I can’t ditch it now. I got rid of it in the offseason and I got some pretty intense reactions. I told them, “Don’t worry, give me two weeks and it’ll be back.” READ THE Arrieta ESPN interview HERE.

Sunday is frequently MEGA-POST day, but today after the heartbreaking Orlando news it just didn’t seem right to post frivolous and fun sexy man bits. But life goes on sadly and if you need a few minutes to escape this terrible tragedy (and you aren’t watching the Tony Awards), here’s a MEGA-POST for you to savour… when you’re good and ready, of course.

WIKI: “Iconic photograph Flower Power, snapped by Bernie Boston on October 21, 1967, at the National Mall: Many debates have been brought up as to the identity of the young demonstrator placing the carnations in the gun barrels on that day. According to a 2007 Washington Post article by David Montgomery, his name is George Edgerly Harris III. Harris was a young actor from New York, about 18 years old, who later made the Summer of Love pilgrimage to San Francisco that for which the hippie movement was famous. There, he came out as gay, changed his name to Hibiscus, and co-founded of The Cockettes, a “flamboyant, psychedelic gay-themed drag troupe. Harris died in the early 1980s during the beginning of the AIDS epidemic.”
