THE MODERN GAY MAN ABOUT TOWN: GUESS ISLAND

Shirtless Waiters Modern Gay Party Guess

The Modern Gay was invited by Guess to attend their annual summer party and launch of the label’s summer collection. Held on Sydney harbour, guests were transported by boat to the Guess Island where shirtless male waiters served tropical inspired cocktails and a troupe of 22 Polynesian fire dancers and drummers provided unique entertainment. Did I mention that there were shirtless waiters serving drinks? This Modern Gay Man enjoyed his fair share of cocktails, ensuring that a continuous flow of handsome waiters were kept in close proximity.

The party continued with old school tunes thanks to The Faders  who kept the harbour rocking long after the sun had set. On the The Modern Gay Evaluation Scale this party scored 4.5 rainbows out of 5, in part due to the shirtless waiters but mainly thanks to the mix of good weather, friendly people, tasty drinks and a sexy brand.

MODERN GAY STYLE: SPORT

Gay Style Modern Gay Basketball Fashion

Basketball is one of the few sports that has created distinct fashion pieces that are acceptable to be worn both on and off the court. From shoes to singlets to headbands, basketball fashion has inspired street-style which has been adopted by gay and straight men alike. The humble high-top, a favourite amongst gay boys trying to achieve that “straight” look, was first introduced to basketball courts in the ’80s as an athletic shoe before it made its way onto the streets.

In this shoot for Attitude Magazine, photographer Jeff Hahn captures the essence of sports style with a fashionable twist.

MODERN GAY STYLE: FACIAL HAIR

Declan-John Geraghty Shirtless

The beard has made a comeback. Once only found on the faces of bears, cubs and Santa Claus, facial hair has now become the must have accessory for all fashionable men. Whether it’s a moustache, a 5 O’Clock shadow, or lamb chops, there’s a plethora of styles from which the discerning man can choose (given that he’s hit puberty and has the ability to grow facial hair). Recently adopted by hipsters from Brooklyn to Bondi and any band that features the banjo, facial hair is the cheaper male equivalent of going to the salon to have your hair coloured.

British model Declan-John Geraghty ticks all the hipster boxes in these shots by Dimitris Theocharis:

MODERN GAY STYLE: VINTAGE COOL

schon21_601

Sometimes the sexiest look is the simplest to achieve – a pair of blue jeans and a white shirt with a leather jacket. In this editorial for Schon! Magazine, styled by Luca Termine and shot by Stefan Giftthaler, model Franky channels Marlon Brando in the 1953 film “The Wild One”.

It’s no secret that I’m a fan of Marlon Brando. His brooding demeanour, masculinity and timeless handsomeness make him the epitome of “cool”. And let’s not forget his openness about his sexuality which he discusses here.
