get to the bathhouse...

the stand out booth (besides the max scott events booth natch) at this year's gay erotic expo was the men's sexual health project. what made them stand out was not only their great and sexy team but the fact that under the bellevue hospital center umbrella, this project offers FREE HIV/STD testing at both the WEST SIDE CLUB and the EAST SIDE CLUB, two of manhattan's popular bathhouses. but the best part is you dont have to be a member or get a daily membership to participate in the testing program. all you have to do is send an email to testingproject@med.nyu.edu or click the link above or the link in my "community resources" links below.

i got to chat with michael torres, the supervising public health advisor about the testing project and this is what he and his team want you all to know...
the men's sexual health project (mshp) offers comperhensive screening for sexually transmitted infections, specifically syphillis, gonorrhea (oral, urethral and rectal) and chlamydia (urethral and rectal). hshp also offers two types of tests to screen for hiv, 1: rapid hiv antibody test and 2: a pcr viral load test to identify acute infection that may not show up on the antibody test. testing is free, however treatment for any infection is not. we have a really good system in place to refer people to low-fee hiv and std care. we can be reached via txt msg at 917 568-2272 or at 212 562-8999. testing varies in time, day and location. testing is usually offered wednesday through sunday. you can call, txt or email us to confirm testing hours.
many thanks to michael and his team for being at the expo this year. the men's sexual health project gets the 2008 mike dreyden award for outstanding community service. thank you for being where we need services most guys and keep up the great work!

i done lost my head...

ok, so i wasn't gonna do this, but with so many of you stopping me on the street, at the bars, and in the middle of a gogo set on a box, i figured i should say something. so here it is... i have no idea why HX is running the expo ad with my head cut off. i appreciate the concern but honestly... im not bothered by it. the important thing here is that i am thankful to have been, for the lack of a better term, the poster boy for this year's expo AND i'm grateful to wilson models for asking me to be in the shoot. so fret not. if the add with my missing head is fuckin with your head then come on down to the manhattan center today at 3pm to see AAAALLLLLL of me, or at least what i can legally show you in public with other people around. LOL! ~MD

2009 MR. EAGLE...

on saturday night, jack and i hit the Mr. Eagle contest at where else... THE EAGLE. when we got there we thought we'd be late since we showed up beyond fashionably late to the "meet and greet" reception for the contestants and judges the night before. but time was on our sides and we'd arrived five minutes before the festivities began.

the usual cast of characters were in attendance... our host and mc, the sassy brian kent, mr. eagle 2005, the magnificent and true master of ceremonies... vern, and the beautiful and talented interpreter for our hearing challenged brothers... mistress susan weinstein who by the way can sign "cock and ball torture" and "feltch" like no body's business! everybody loves her and when i got the chance i thanked her for being there. she said this is by far her favorite event of the year as an interpreter and she wouldn't miss it for the world.

also in attendance were our favorite nightlife photographers... the super sexy peter lau and the jeffrey eason covering the event for NEXT and HX respectively and of course what would the event be without eagle big daddy himself derek!
