One More Time
Well, gang, Rhoda is back one
I received a phone message from
T. G.'s dead pet monkey Concheeta
the other day. It was basically undecipherable, but I managed to get
something about that he had managed to move "up" in the world.
But I believe it was really nothing
more than the voice of the dead!
And speaking of the dead, T. G.

too right, but his best friend did!

I don't think Houston was ready
for the Bourbon Pub staff to hit the

Texas Pageant. Pub owner Jerry
Menefee and Dr. John Hancock
made it in to judge the beefcake
show, but it appeared half of the
working staff made in in for a festive two day occassion. It seems
that Ms. Menefee wasn't ready to

by the New Orleans mob! The only

Up Dallas way, it appears that
the Bayou Landing is closed for
good. It seems that the are some

And speaking of the IRS, Mary's

trouble with the boys in coats and

out their cash registers and left a
receipt for amount of purchase.

Montreal - Twenty-five year
old Gilles Boucher has become an
"instant celebrity" in the Olympic
City as the Machismo Man, house
model for Machismo, a Canadian
mail-order menswear firm. The
handsome French-Canadian Lumberjack and truck driver has become the gay world's answer to
Madison Avenue's Marlboro Man.
One of 12 brothers and sisters,
Gilles Boucher left his hometown
of Riviere-du-Loup (Wolf River -
300 miles east of Montreal) at
the age of 19 for a stint of hunting and fishing in Quebec's bush
country, but soon found himself
drawn to the "Metropole" - Montreal. Discovered in a popular
downtown watering-hole, Gilles
was asked to model for a new
Public response was overwhelming as soon as the ads appeared. Cards and letters began
to pour in with everything from
marriage offers to requests for
items of Gilles' personal clothing. Fans began to stop Gilles
on the street, and his appearance
in Montreal bars and discos was
greeted by enthusiastic rounds of
applause. A Machismo Man fan
club, now being formed, will offer membership cards, photos,
and word of his latest activities
in a newsletter written by Gilles
himself. The ads and catalog
have provoked considerable media
interest as well. Major Canadian
and American publications, both
straight and gay, are negotiating
for feature stories of Gilles' rise
to stardom, and one important U.S.
magazine is considering a cover
Gilles has just completed a
feature film that was shot on location in Montreal during the
Olympics. Plans are underway
for him to record an album of
love songs in French. Gilles'
plans also include a personal-
appearance tour in the late fall
to meet his West Coast fans, followed by a three month European
tour with England, France, Holland, Germany, Greece, and Israel on his itinerary.
And what does young Gilles
think of all this? "Cest la vie"
shrugs Mr. Boucher. "I take
life as it comes."
