Why I Stopped Going to the Barbershop



by Mark o Estes

The other day, I caught wind of a new documentary by filmmaker Derrick L. Middleton that would showcase the dread and fears of black gay men in the hyper-masculine barbershops of the black community. The film, which is called Shape Up: Gay in the Black Barbershop, will chronicle the lives of a few gay black men as they disclose their fears and stories that range from being subjected to hearing the words “faggot” and “sissy” being slung about like a card during a spades game to being thrown out of the barbershops just for being who they are. Watching the trailer for Shape Up brought back my own memories as to why I haven’t stepped foot in a barbershop for years and have never returned.

Prince! Live!


Originally published in the Mellifluous Breeze

Years ago I had the distinct pleasure of seeing the little man who sits alone in a paisley park, under the cherry moon while it rains purple… it’s the sign o’ times, it’s the sign o’ the times, it’s the sign o’ the times. It was during a queer little period of his career when he decided to hold camp at the Forum in Los Angeles for 21 days.

One day after I settled down into my chair at my local coffee shop and checked my email, I got a message from the Amel Larriuex fan club saying that she would be opening up for Prince that evening. At this point, just about everybody in the city had seen him, especially with tickets going for as low as $25. Now every time I tried to get those tickets they usually ran between $75 and $150. And with the mountain of expenses I procured at the time, I had conceded to the fact that $25 Prince tickets were just an “Urban Legend” and that I would just have to skip a possibly monumental, once in a lifetime opportunity; but for shits and giggles, I clicked on the link in her email to see… and there they were $25… total. No convenience fee, no handling fee… $25. That’s it. Holy. Shit.

Musings of a Philosophical Bear: It's All a Game

by Malcolm Travers


When I was a believer and went to church regularly, there was this married couple I used to eavesdrop on the regular. The husband often bragged to his friends about his golf game, but his wife would tell another story. When he came home from golf, she knew not to ask how the game went. As much as he put on a front with his friends about how good he was, she knew it went one of two ways. He would talk about it for hours, about each great shot he took which bored the hell out of her, or he'd be upset for days ranting over how this or that is unfair or what was wrong with the country club. One day the husband came home clearly upset about the game, but he wasn't talking to her. He wasn't being rude, just passive aggressive. Normally she would have put up with it, but for some reason she had enough, and she told him "honey it's just a game." And he said "it's more than a game, it's a way of life, golf is life" She wanted to roll her eyes, but she stopped herself and said, "well then if golf is life then that means life is just a game."
