It’s not every day that 2 gay male penguins are given an egg to incubate and care for. After building a nest for the past 6 year, penguin couple Inca and Rayas are getting their chance. Yolanda Martin, who cares for the pair at the Faunia Park in Madrid said: “We wanted them to have something to stay together for – so we got an egg. Otherwise they might have become depressed.”
This is certainly some great gay penguin news, especially in light of the recent controversial separation of gay penguin couple Pedro and Buddy at our own Toronto Zoo.
This really cool bike frame storage titled “Reel” by Yeongkeun Jeong makes trendy old school bike baskets seem so 2002.
Best of all, it’s made from a flexible elastic material so you will always have a unique, custom Reel for your bike. Personally, I’m hoping to strap one of our lattes in there.
As May winds down, here at the Gladstone we are already getting excited for our fave month of all… Pride (aka June, aka Pride at the Gaystone). It’s that special time of year when all the glitter and unicorns we’ve been saving up since last Pride are finally able to explode from our storage closet and onto the world.
Even though it’s not officially Pride month yet, here’s a little gift from a hilarious NYC Gays gif site that just happened upon our Pride-ar.

Often Goth culture prefers to be left underground, sitting straight-faced in a dark corner. But, today is World Goth Day, so today the we will shine a dull light on all that is Goth.
To show our true Goth love, here’s a Goth-couture pic of MK +A proving that pop culture can re-appropriate just about anything.
So celebrate. For every tube of black eyeliner, fishnet and pair of Dr. Martens you’ve ever worn or wished to wear. Today is the day to show the Goth scene just how much we care.
So, it only seems natural to start a Catual Friday update. To kick things off, here’s Kaleb Robertson channeling his Catualness with this not-so-shy tuxedo cat.
Feline Catual yet? Please Note: cat puns are definitely going to be a reapurring theme in these posts, so pour yourself a warm bowl of milk and get ready for the amazingness of Catual Friday’s.
Do·cent (noun) a person who is a knowledgeable guide, especially one who conducts visitors through a museum and delivers a commentary on the exhibitions.
You don’t have to get wild on this performance tour, but your docent will. Starting May 12 from 1-2pm and continuing every Saturday until September, an eclectic team of wild docents (read: drag queens, thespians and other outspoken characters) will be leading moderately historical tours of the Gladstone Hotel. Based loosely on fact and strongly in entertainment, you never know what your docent will do.
*Docents will rotate from tour-to-tour so don’t be shy to come back for seconds.
