Today is day 2 of our vacation. We arrived in Toronto and are staying with a Univertsity Musician Dean or something like that. I didn’t quite get his title. We had a lovely night of homemade dinner and wine.
We decided to go for a walk. We are about 20 minutes walk away from the Gay Village, aka Toronto’s Church Street of gay central. Basically, it’s the centre of the universe for Ontario at the Gay Village. There’s not much there to be honest… bars and coffee shops galore… but you wouldn’t find just anything there.
We are staying in a very old home that has been renovated beautifully. We walked last night and could see inside some of these extremely old homes and were in awe about the decor and changes done.
Eventually, we walked into Woodies for a Drinkee… My Gawd, flashback to my single days. Woodies is a gay bar you see. A nice one, not too upscale but beautifully done. You would see guys in groups…. typically, you see one twink, you will see another 5 just like him laughing and carrying on. Then you would see many guys standing alone holding up walls, posts, and more… Just standing there drinking their drink. Pretending life is great and waiting by the side lines for someone to approach them. MY oh MY was that sad.
Diva Dan and I sat arm in arm… he’s my man and very proud to be at his side. It was a hardcored reminder why Diva Dan is at my side last night. All that pretentiousness in the air and faking kiss kiss as people come and go… It reminds me so much that Daniel is not one of them… not a person to eager to please, but not whimpy enough to allow things to negative things to happen.
IT was a lovely evening, we did go to a place Called Zippers where a drag queen was signing show tunes… 2 songs was enough before we made the journey home… In less than hour from now, we are heading back out and to ROM (Royal Ontario Museum). I am taking my camera! Can’t wait!
