South by So Gay. That's what we like to call it.
GAY ETHER Your friendly neighborhood Gay Place has our own Web page on the Chronicle website. Yes, darlin' dearies, you can access all this Gay Place goodness under one unique URL of all things gay in tha A: austinchronicle.com/gay. Under this convenient online addy shall reside the Gay Place calendar listings, the Gay Place Blog, this weekly bit of random musing, and so much more. We are proud as pregnant peacocks. Puffed up like poopy unicorns, we are. And so very chuffed that you might consider lounging with us for a bit during this big Conference. Also, our ol' pals at SXSWhomo are up and running for this year's events. Check them out on Facebook or at www.sxswhomo.com throughout this thing called South by Southwest. Speaking of SXSW ...
GAY MEATSPACE So, your friendly neighborhood Gay Place tour guide (me, Kate X) will be hosting this year's SXSW LGBT Interactive Meet-Up, this Saturday, March 12, 3:30-4:30pm, in the Victorian Room at the Driskill (Sixth & Brazos). And gays, I must tell you: You really, really want to see this room. It is cush red-velvet posh in its most plush whorehouse finery. And we mean that in the very best way. (Then again, we are "available" for a song, especially this time of year – and especially to dark, hard femmes whose successful startups went public this year, inspiring them to take that pile of money they are splayed naked on, relocate to Austin, and "adopt" a kept editor ... but I digress – so we are probably not the best judge as to whether or not "whorehouse" is offensive, generally speaking.) Hope to see all you flaming gay-wads out there. (See Saturday.)
