Wednesday is “friends’ day” here at The Novus, as well as in my everyday life. This week I’d like to draw your attention to 100 Boyfriend’s Mixtape, a new film by my very talented friend Brontez Purnell which is premiering this Saturday at Outfest.
It’s one of life’s unfortunate ironies that nudists are rarely the sorts of folk you’d like to see naked, and the cadre of skin-clad sunbathers who congregate at Jane Warner Plaza in the heart of San Francisco’s Castro Village are no different. Generally flabby, paunchy, falling demographically somewhere between Jurassic and Antediluvian, and usually wearing nothing more than sneakers and the occasional sun hat. It’s… not a pretty sight. But fear not citizens! Scott Wiener has a simple solution to the plague of wrinkled old man flesh polluting Cloud City’s pristine streets: criminalize nudity.
