2mryuku

The ancient pagans believed that during Halloweenthe delineation between the physical and spiritual realms faded, allowing supernatural entities to frolic among mere mortals. Similarly, during Halloween in LA, the delineation between the queer and heteronormative realms fade, allowing men and woman of all integers on the Kinsey scale to strip half naked and folic across the gayborhood of West Hollywood. But, Angelenos know there is plenty of fun to be had before October 31st. So slip on your animal ears/underpants combo ensemble, because, to paraphrase a song for another holiday, “On the thirteenth day of Halloween, by Grindr trick gave to me…”
