On Saturday the semi-finals for Mr. Gay happened at The Nevermore Hotel for Mr. New Hope Gay. This is all leading up to the finals at Mr. Gay US National on November 12th and 13th at Voyeur Nightclub. With three handsome contestants, Michael Probe, Steve Warner and Chocolate X Vizcaya competing for the title of Mr. New Hope Gay; the Contestants paraded around in as few clothes as possible at times to impress the judges, from work wear to swimsuit/underwear there was something for everyone. After all the diverse talents were shown from Drag to a suggestive way on how to eat a banana. Michael Probe was the winner and crowned Mr New Hope Gay. The contestants, judges and audience danced the night away to the music of DJ Michael DeCero and Edge was there to capture every minute.
"Freedom to Be" was the theme for the eighth annual New Hope Celebrates Pride parade, which ambled, tooted and trotted down Ferry and So. Main Streets in the borough this past Saturday. The parade was filled with music from The Philadelphia Freedom Band and The Gay and Lesbian Big Apple Corps Marching Band, floats, flag-twirlers, Mummers, colorful entertainers, families and many friends of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgendered as well as allied community. It even included recognizing former Congressman Patrick Murphy for his efforts in repealing "Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell". After the parade everyone went to Mechanic Street where the party went into full swing with local performers and some surprises. EDGE was there to capture all the festivities!
This past Saturday the newest bar in the Gayborhood had its Grand Opening. Boxers introduced themselves to everyone with all the fanfare that was expected. With hot shirtless bartenders and a jam packed bar, a fun time was had by everyone that came.
This fun adventure was held at Gondola Plaza, with comedic host Miss Richfield 1981 and hysterical judges. The crowd enjoyed watching the costumed skiers come down the hill accompanied by the music of their choice.
