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.

MEN OF DISTINCTION: ELTON JOHN

Sir Elton John is perhaps one of the greatest living performers of our times. Beyond the talent, Elton is a generous supporter of HIV and AIDS programs through his charity the Elton John Aids Fund (EJAF). The foundation’s mission is “to reduce the incidence of HIV/AIDS through innovative HIV prevention programs, to eliminate stigma and discrimination associated with HIV/AIDS, and direct treatment, care, and support services for people living with HIV/AIDS” (www.ejaf.org).

I had the great honour of spending the day with Elton John aboard a chartered yacht on Sydney harbour a few months ago. It was the most surreal experience. The breathtaking harbour as a backdrop and a day with Sir Elton, his son and a small circle of friends. We spoke about music and Australia while I sipped on champagne and Elton sipped on Diet Coke. Although the media like to exploit Elton’s “diva” antics, in person he was absolutely charming, friendly and a doting father to his adorable son Zachary.
