The Washington Blade reports that the site selection committee for the Gay Games are being shown around the city today as part of the area’s pitch to host the 2014 Gay Games. The two other cities bidding are Cleveland and Boston and they’ve already been visited by the committee.

Supporters are being encouraged to show up for a rally Monday night at Stead Park. Mayor Fenty, other members of the council, and some of the Nats are expected to attend. Performers will begin at 6:30 and after the sun has set and the rally is ended they’ll be screening the movie Hairspray- the more current musical, natch.

The selection will be announced in late September.

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.
