Fitness - The preparation and the start of a work-out

Until now in the Gay News fitness series there was a beginner who wrote his first experiences down. That’s one side of the story. Let’s now have a look from the other side, the personal trainer with a lot of practice experience. The first item I would like to pay attention to is "the costs", because there was nothing written about it in this column so far. Like for many things in life, also here you could say, you can make it as expensive or keep it as cheap as you would like to.

Portfolio - All American Jet Set Boys

When you're discussing porn, usually it will primarily be about the so-called "stars". When you're talking to real aficionados the talk might also turn to producers such as Falcon or Bel Ami, or to directors such as Jean Daniel Cadinot or Chi Chi LaRue (although I doubt anyone will be able to name some of her productions offhand, because she's more famous as a persona).

Wining and Dining - Walem: Threefold Nice

In the beginning of the eighties one of the first Grand Cafes in Amsterdam opened it doors. It was named "Het Land van Walem", and situated opposite of the former residence and workshop of Dutch gay fashion designer Frank Govers. When "the small doll" used to have his breaks there, everybody could enjoy his vicious thoughts. Situated next to Morlang - which also still exists - the difference between the two places was like Scheveningen (Morlang) and Zandvoort (Walem).

Style 2004 - PARIS

During five days the summer presentations for the male collections closed with in total thirty nine shows. An opportunity for many designers from different countries like Spain, Japan and Belgium. Paris still seems to be an international fashion laboratory; it’s the city where trends are set, headed by designers like Helmut Lang, Hedi Slimane, and Jean Paul Gaultier. Nowadays, they mainly have to prompt men to buy clothes. Innovating cloths in a rather difficult market. Still disgusted with the just ended war in Iraq, all designers decided to ban all items with a military look out of their collections.

How gay-minded is the Amsterdam Tourist Board?

How the Amsterdam Tourist Board (formally and nationally known as VVV) completely fails when it comes to providing gay information, which is completely free available in large amounts; but instead they provide gay tourists with a map which costs two euros which contains no gay information at all, and next to this they also act up as moralists. Here is the sad story of two tourists who were looking for gay information in Amsterdam.
