Dance Dance

On my birthday I typically send a selected group of family and friends crazy doing things that are a little out of their comfort zone, but hopefully still a lot of fun. This year I had them all ballroom dancing. A private lesson I arranged with the delightful Virginia at Logan Dance Sydney who had us laughing sweating and actually moving to the music in some form of order. They do same-sex ballroom/Latin (like I really know the difference) dancing classes there on Sundays but we had the place to just us on Saturday evening and it was a hoot. I was laughing out loud, and a lot. Can you get any gayer than this? I don't know but after seeing the top dancers at the 2002 Gay Games, I thought it looked like the ultimate thing to do and Saturday was the day. It seems it was even more popular than I expected - there is talk of going back for more... It wasn't all same sex, but my brother got to dance with quite a few of my male friends... he is a particularly good sport.  


Speaking of gay themes, and dancing, there is a TV show I've just seen my second episode of called Skins. It's UK based (and UK readers probably know more about it and have probably seen - or missed -  the end of the current series). It's targeted to a late teen / young adult audience and is really a lot of fun. Innovative and certainly entertaining plots with a decidedly cute blonde (above) in the cast... and significant gay themes. I'll be keeping an eye out for Skins on SBS, Mondays at 10pm.

You missed the whole first season of Skins.. it was very good too. It's out on DVD or a torrent somewhere.

I love Skins! As soon as season one finished on SBS I ordered the DVD of season two from the UK. Now I see SBS has just started showing it!
