Hot guys in ball caps; more gay skaters speak up …

Hi, friends and readers:

I like guys in ball caps. Backward, bill-in-front, or even turned sideways, it doesn’t matter. The guys in today’s photo posts look great in theirs, don’t you think?

I rose this morning around 7:30, for my two-mile beach walk. It’s Sunday, which means a lot of beachgoers form town are already out here, to spend the day on our little island. It’s a nice day for the beach — sunny and breezy, and not too humid. I might take a second walk this afternoon, if conditions stay nice. We’ve had a lot of stormy weather the past few days, but now things have calmed down. I have a painting project I’ll spend time on this afternoon, as well. I’m so industrious.

Yesterday’s comment by Matt, the skateboarder, has prompted a lot more skaters to chime in on the subject of gay boys/men participating in the skateboarding subculture. Here are a few snippets:

Carlos from San Jose, CA said, “My skate posse knows I’m queer. They don’t care. If someone gives me shit about it, my friends stick up for me.”

Cody from Des Moines, IA said, “I’d probably get my ass kicked if I came out to my friends and the skatepark. But I won’t let that keep me from skating. I can bomb in parking garages as good as anyone else, so don’t tell me gay dudes can’t skate. I sure can. I wish I didn’t have to hide my gay side from my friends.”

Evan from New Hampshire told me, “I always look forward to the comments on your site about gay dudes skating. I have skated since I was ten. I just finished my junior year of high school. I agree with Matt. Not all skaters are dumb. I get good grades. I’ll go to Dartmouth after high school, just like my brother. I’m gay and I don’t care who knows it. Screw people who hate on gay skaters. The dudes in Manchester don’t care that I’m gay.”

Thanks to everyone who tossed comments my way. And have a great Sunday, friends.
