Gaydo on tour

Gaydo investigates men in tight shorts and locker rooms

Gaydo on tour

Hello Dears

Hope you are all well and enjoying the autumnal sunshine. What a pleasure it was to mince through The Village in mid October and see all the lovely boys still in their sexy t-shirts. Although, to be honest dears, I would rather see them without.

Sorry I haven’t been in touch lately but after the hectic Pride 2007, which by the way, raised over £95,000 I took myself off to South America for a well earned rest and to watch the Gay World Cup 2007. Buenos Aires was the location this year and Gaydo went along to support The Village Manchester Football Club. The boys did extremely well and managed to get through to the quarter finals. Gaydo did enjoy the half time. The things you can do with that magic sponge could make your hair curl. I would like to say a HUGE thank you to Vicky, Abi and Nancy for all their support and for setting up the BAPS (Boyfriend and Partners Society). Next year’s World Cup is in London and so the boys will not have jet lag to contend with – Good Luck.

Gaydo was fortunate enough to get an invite to Amber’s birthday party at Spirit. The night was a real glitzy affair with an array of amazing Drag Queens, Butlers in the Buff and top DJs. Check out the gallery section of
www.canal-st.co.uk Are you featured?

Thursday took me to the top floor at Manto to see the outrageous and talented Ms Veronyca Kastle. It was a camp old do with live singing and lots of great prizes. Gaydo hears that it was so successful that it will be on every Thursday, from 9 pm.

A BIG congratulations to Daniel Broughton from Blackpool who won the title of ‘Mr Gay UK 2007’. He was spotted on Canal Street over the weekend. Let’s hope that the bright lights on Canal Street can tempt him away from Blackpool on a regular basis. He really is a lovely bit of eye candy. Who knows, if I play my cards right (and I don’t mean my credit cards) this time next year we may be married.

The first Saturday of the month took me to Sub 101 at Cruz, for ‘Kink’. Under new ownership it certainly is raunchier and sexier than ever before with live performances and sexy erotic dancers. They’re also taking ‘Kink’ to Amsterdam and Rome. So, girls, save up those airmiles and jet over for a dirty weekend.

My friends at Doubletake Studios are letting me share the opportunity to win a £2000 photographic session. The prize will include cocktails on arrival, full make over and lots of other goodies. For full details go to

Lots of love,

I know you do it to be 'fun' and maybe even 'controversial' but the whole gaydo thing is an embarassment to man con.'Gaydo did enjoy the half time. The things you can do with that magic sponge could make your hair curl'I mean..for pities sake, I would have thought your editor would have put a red line through that & many others! Some of the sh1test (to use the technical term) writing I have seen on the web.

DisappointedOctober 25th 2007.

agree with gaz on this one...what a load of sterotypical rubbish!! Please wake up...this is 2007. Its not funny, its simply pathetic and a complete disappointment/turnoff to 99.9% of gay readers.

OuchOctober 25th 2007.

I got as far as reading that this one-dimensional so-called 80's throw back columnist was off to South America. Do us all a favour - next time STAY THERE.

BobOctober 25th 2007.

Lighten up for Heaven's sakes Gaz. Gaydo is a bit of fun and camp humour delivered firmly in the spirit in which it is intended. What is your problem with it? Not a fan of camp humour??? Well then here's a novel idea for you, don't read the article.

DarrenOctober 25th 2007.

Can we have a straight version written in the same way - one that uses all the stereotypes that straights try to avoid too? This article is just out of place on Man Con.As for Bob who says 'dont read it' - what a stupid comment - surely you have to read it to know what it says and be able to provide comment. Isnt that what the 'rant' facility is all about in the first place?

epsOctober 25th 2007.

Ouch, you seem like an open minded person....NOT.Perhaps YOU should travel??How's about Sudan??
