The Gay Guy at Galaxy Fair '94
Well, I have had a very tiring week, and I might get into it later. But let's skip all that for now and go directly get directly to the bit about the gay guy.
(The following was originally posted on another blog on December 31st.)
I'm sure that gay guy had a real name, but I don't remember what it was, and he might not want it in some strange woman's blog anyway, so let's move on.
So I was setting up stuff in the art room, and gay guy walked in wearing mostly black leather and a dog collar. He was being led around on a leash by a blond girl who later turned out to be his sister. And he told me right away that he was gay. I wondered at first if had been overly friendly, but apparently that is just what he does. Right away he's like "Hi, I'm gay." So that way he doesn't waste time trying to be friends with you if you can't deal with it. Pretty soon after that, religion came into the conversation. I'm a Christian, and maybe I should say that right away so I don't waste time trying to be friends with you if you can't deal with it. Anyway, we went on to talk about the art and whether or not he liked this or that costume and the usual stuff that you talk about at conventions.
So that was nice. Catch you later.
So later, I am in the costume contest with the borg costume, and I do just this tiny bit of the "When Harry Met Sally" restaurant scene as part of the show. And it was a lot of fun, and I tied with a friend for Best Trek.
So after the contest, I run into to this gay guy again. And he is like, you were all talking about being a Christian, and then you get on stage and have an orgasm. And I'm like, I didn't know Christians weren't supposed to have orgasms.
(The following is new material.)
I think that I was a bad influence on this man. I swear I saw him a few years ago at a costume contest at another convention. I'm trying to think of a nice way to describe what he was wearing. Let's see. He was wearing green spandex, and there was a ten inch green pole between his legs, and on the pole was a giant green eyeball with flashing lights. And he would walk around on stage in such a way that the pole and the flashing eye would sort of swing around in a circle.
There weren't many people in this contest, and I believe he won Best Original. Well, I'd certainly never seen anything like it before.
