    Christian Ladies and Biker Boys

    Five stories reveal five faces of one city, New Orleans. I made my first trip to New Orleans this past April, and the faces I remember most were those of two Christian women in their mid-to-late-twenties. Their faces were worn and slightly red -- pink, really, as if drawn from the plain's wind. And the women themselves were plain. Neither wore makeup or adornment of any kind. They were both wearing the long denim skirts common among devout evangelicals. Their faces were simply pretty and graceful without being

    Triple-X Marks the Spot

    How New Orleans's oldest cemetery can make your dreams comes true. Three blocks north of Dauphine Street, in St. Louis Cemetery No. 1 , the oldest and most famous graveyard in the city, the relics and offerings of myriad religions are left at graves long after the bodies are gone. Because the lime-washed granite tombs are above ground, new bodies are put in once the old remains have disintegrated. More than a few tombs bear a series of charcoal Xs. The most are found on the tomb of Marie Laveau, a Voodoo

    A Shirtless Farmer in a Fancy Hotel

    Just a small part of an $8 million collection. The Windsor Court Hotel , my well-appointed headquarters for the trip, prides itself on its extensive art collection. Valued at $8 million, it includes a picture of Windsor Castle by Thomas Gainsborough and Jacob Huyman's "A Noblewoman with Her Three Children" and, during Hurricane Katrina, when looters ran rampant, the Windsor stationed armed guards at entrances to protect the irreplaceable treasures. One of those works, located in the

    'Look Where You Want To Go'

    Great advice for travelers of every variety. On my last morning in the Big Easy, I picked up a breakfast banh mi sandwich at Booty's -- a Vietnamese po'boy with egg and pate -- and returned to Clouet Park. It was a beautiful scene: mid-70s weather, a bright, strong sun on green grass, a yellow swing set swaying with the wind, and just me and my sandwich in the shadow of a rustling oak. Before long, a handsome man in his early thirties with curly black hair and Umbro soccer shorts (that made clear

  • Stockholm Has Some Truly Sexy Statues

    Stockholm Has Some Truly Sexy Statues

    These sculptures are definitely hard and hot. If you're into well-sculpted bodies and art history and in Stockholm , you're in luck, because this Swedish capital's brimming with rock hard abs and preening naked men. Those who are really gung-ho about Adonises will definitely want to head to Millesgården , the former home of preeminent Swedish sculptor Carl Milles, a national treasure whose works pepper the city, and the world: a replica of his famous 1926 creation Sunsinger can be found

    Faces Glass and Painted

    What does this New Orleans AIDS memorial say to you? GLASS FACES: Walking through the Faubourg Marigny neighborhood one day, I came to Washington Square Park, the corner of Dauphine St. and Elysian Fields Ave. At the northern boundary of the park—away from the short palms and ancient oaks and bands of young families and homeless alike—stands a curved steel structure from which the translucent glass faces of 34 men and women emerge. I guessed from a distance that it was an AIDS memorial. I was right.

  • New Orleans's End of the World

    New Orleans's End of the World

    And the beginning of a new one. Southeast of the French Quarter, past an already eastern neighborhood called Bywater and across a set of disused railroad tracks, there's a levee locals call The End of the World. It jets into the Mississippi under the shadow of the East Bank Naval Clinic, a set of three hauntingly desolate buildings decommissioned in 2011, and is bordered by Industrial Canal. A tanker is parked at a dock the city's renting out until it decides how to develop the clinic's 23-acre

  • Walt Whitman's 'Zesty Guy' Moment

    Walt Whitman's 'Zesty Guy' Moment

    Bridge's 50s-era erection spawned 'homoerotic' versus 'homosexual' debate. If you're driving west on Interstate 76, over the Delaware River from New Jersey to Pennsylvania (or, bless you, vice versa), you'll ride over the Walt Whitman Bridge, a simple steel structure that today seems completely unremarkable. But from 1954-1956 before religious groups like the American Family Association's One Million Moms could use the internet to instantly turn fringe

    A Pot of Gold That's Also The Rainbow

    The biggest influence on San Francisco's evolution into a fully-fledged gay mecca wasn't acceptance and embrace, but rejection and admonishment "SF induces a lyric mood in me, a feeling of high destinies working out," wrote Samuel Steward , the mid-20th century gay author, academic, and tattoo artist whose decades of diaries and archives  Justin Spring researched for his stunning 2010 book,  Secret Historian : The Life and Times of Samuel Steward, Professor, Tattoo

    We recently relaunched our Friday nights with a new fun summer theme calling it SUMMER OF HYPE.
