Gay Pride History

   THE GAY HIGH HOLIDAYS If Halloween is gay Christmas, then Gay Pride is Easter. The time we honor all those who were sacrificed or sacrificed of themselves so that we can the live the way we do now. A life that many of us take for granted. This past June, Danny and I took Hello Sailor TMH on the road and did our first Gay Pride event in Boston. We packed up the Subaru with boxes of tee-shirts, hoodies, etc. and set up a booth in the market tents. We didn’t know what to expect since we were practically event marketing virgins. Would people actually show up? Would our wares warrant homo recognition or would we go unnoticed? The...

Sailor Fantasies & "The Donald"

The story of how Hello Sailor TMH, a gay men’s clothing and nautical decor line, evolved continues….. The Jack-Pot movie, airing on a country station, based in San Angelo, came on TV every weekday at 1:00.  This is how I spent my summer days as a child, while land locked in hot, desolate Texas. I could escape into a fantasy world of vintage movies, while wasting away on the sofa, in our air-conditioned living room. Each week would feature a theme – Bette Davis Week – Joan Crawford Week – Audrey Hepburn Week, etc. I dreamed of one day growing up and being just like Holly Golightly, in Breakfast at Tiffany’s: a glamorous, depressed, champagne guzzling, fashionista whore who was...
