Is Mayor Bloomberg Gay?
And what if he was?
"That's the kinds of questions we at Next magazine found ourselves asking in our Gay Pride Issue 2011.
"What keeps the gay dream alive in New York when things like AIDS, 9/11, marriage inequality and, yes, mayors who campaign against our nightlife, our dancing, our sex lives and our freedoms, constantly seem to knock us down.
"TroyBoyDesign, one of many artists asked to visualize their dreams for gay New York in the issue, created this fun, sexy (and slightly disturbing) digital composite that imagines an alternate reality. How would life here be different for gay men if our mayor was gay?"
I haven't been this attracted to a mayor since John Lindsay.
