We just got back from a holiday in Palm Springs. Our holiday coincided with the largest gay dance party in the USA - according to the banners that arched the roads into the town. I don’t know if it was the specific occasion or not but American gay men are so…buff! I’ve never seen such a gathering of muscular, tanned, tattooed men in one place. Hoardes of big steely biceps glistening in the sun! And the buttocks! Malcolm and I and Joey stood out, not because we weren’t gay but because we were so pale and non tattooed and little in comparison.
We all really liked Palm Springs, I was worried it might be sanitised and consequently dull but actually the landscape doesn’t allow it to feel uninteresting or bland. Of course, there are golf courses and casinos and fast food chains. But the setting is spectacular. And I really like old people.
