Jeremiah! Does anyone remember a male dancer who used to wow all the women at the Dayton bars in the 70's. I think his name was "Jeremiah". This was years before the Chippendale dancers and other male revues. He actually lived right down the street from me near the Dayton Mall.
The sign, so modest that the letter G must stand in for the word gay, is a fitting symbol of a 30-year-old salute to immodesty, the city's last surviving all-male burlesque house and the only remaining strip theater where performers danced completely nude.

One of the guys who often headlined went by the name Jeremiah (with various spellings) Shastid. His family had immigrated from some Middle Eastern country or other in his childhood, so his actual surname probably wasn't that much different than what he was known by.
The first one he did was much better but this one was pretty funny hahaha. I have one special cousin

Thursday, October 11, The Gaiety Theater. Where were you allowed to put the money, and what were you permitted to touch? I do recall this one time a hot guy came and sat down next to me, I was wearing cut downs and a tee and he business suit and tie and had been seat hopping about the stalls. Have hard time recalling names but wish I could return for a minute. Toledo, Ohio. No other dancer came with a bag of tricks like this old hoofer. I tried to keep both books personal, entertaining, and educational to anyone of any age or gender experiencing the same quandary of how to continue living their lives seeking euphoria in a healthy manner. Everywhere but gaeity Christopher Duquette. Early 80's at the Gaiety I think you are Italo-American. I thoroughly enjoyed his company on several occasions. I think it attracted mostly closeted men like myself. They even have stores in Japan! Between live shows gay porn was screened no sound just visual from a projector , most of the title came from the Kristen Bjorn stable, with those beefy dark men not unlike the dancers. And the diseases then were cured with a shot. She was so happy, she asked if I'd take the position. Tere was one or two bodies a week turning up there. I been in the navy for nearly 30 years and find myself wondering where they all went. It is free and quick. It was the first time I had ever seen someone Puerto Rican naked and that's all I needed to get hard. Interesting series of photos. And yes - the dancers were available behind the stage - for a price. I worked there as a dancer in , I was A show was in progress and I couldn't believe what I was seeing it's worth noting I was a closet adolescent visiting NY with my straight friend - this was a coming of age for me. We shouldn't have let them brainwash us. Gene forbid tricks While on a west-side night spot scandal roll, let's also air out the "West Side Story" story. The dancers would help each other get hard in the dressing room. Detailed information about all U. I went to Gaiety when, for brief time, it was a hetro place with women dancers and porn movies showing on a screen in back of the stage. Now those bossy, boring republicans are gone any chance of having Gaiety or such back? I also came with my own CD music labeled with the track and my stage name: Xristo. So much for living in the puritanical Etats-Unis. User-defined colors Preset color patterns. Double standard.
The Book of Lamentations: a bitterly nostalgic look at a city in the process of going extinct. I used to visit the Gaiety back in the 80s every time I came to New York on business. The whole concept seemed very outdated. I think it attracted mostly closeted men like myself. As your post noted, there was a small reception room next to the theater itself. They served snacks for the customers and the dancers. Most of the time the customers were shy middle aged men who stood in awe of the well built dancers. They rarely had the nerve to mingle. I wondered at first if the dancers were engaging in prostitution with some of these men, but I never saw an indication of it if they were. Oh it was really fun, it was raining men. Huge muscles. We are writing about NYC only 5 years ago, when I was 25! It all souns like history, like an ancient myth, tragicly unbelievable to US anymore. How come we got so boring in such a short time! Who is to blame? We shouldn't have let them brainwash us. Now those bossy, boring republicans are gone any chance of having Gaiety or such back? It is only fare to have male strip clubs while having somany female strip clubs everywhere. Guys love to perform, showoff. Double standard. Double Standard it is that we got pushed in to by gender-chauvinist powers. We want Gaiety, we want Male Burlesque. I loved the Gaiety. I used to go with my gay boys and watch them work the room I danced there in , for five months. What ever happened to the lovely Denise and her sister, Evi? I miss them. And I have sadly lost track with all the dancers who were friends for many years. I worked at the Gaiety beginning of It was wonderful, especially for me who was coming from France. At this time the boys were all natural and not bodybuilders. Great bodies; the customers were very nice and the owner too. I had a wonderful time there and it's one of my favorites moments in my life. Too bad it disappeared. My first visit was in I'll never forget the incredible dark-haired dancer with the chain that went sailing over the audience; it's a wonder nobody was hurt. Every subsequent visit to NYC found me at the Gaiety. And yes - the dancers were available behind the stage - for a price. I was a devoted patron of the Gaiety from April, , to June, I loved the backroom scene, which was sexually modest for the most part, until Giluliani's clamp down. I made many friends and lovers with the boys. I saw it's decline for many years under Giuliani's harrassment. I left New York just a year before it ended. And, it was not replaced. I now live in Montreal, where the culture of the Gaiety is well and alive. So much for living in the puritanical Etats-Unis. I actually danced there briefly in 79 and came in second in a burlesque review behind a John Holmes impressionist
And I have sadly lost track with all the dancers who were friends for many years. I think you are Italo-American. It was wide open. I miss them.

Posting Quick Reply - Please Wait. Dancers from the gaiety would dance at the Nob and dancers from the nob would dance the gaiety Big porn names!! Thank you for your patronage. We shouldn't have let them brainwash us. I loved the Gaiety. Mama Lina's I was born the same year as Madonna. Christopher Duquette. I devorced 4 yrs later and moved to Miami. Everyone was reasonably nice including the other dancers, but there were minor dramas. Anyway - The dancers weren't dancers till they hit the stage. The building was just demolished and last week's visit to the site revealed the zig-zag vestigial trace of the stairs you used to climb to reach the Gaiety. Click here. Had a chain chair hanging and the shows were times better actually. If you charged any less the other dancers would hear about it and they could alienate you in several ways for it. The guests walked through the dressing room and gave you a BJ to the side of the stage in a semi private area. Post a Comment. I made many friends and lovers with the boys. This was my first visit to New York I stay in London, England and to a male revue bar of any sort, I remember walking the streets late evening trying to find the theatre and when I did, being nervous to go in - once I got in there and up the zig-zag stairwell my world changed. Homo GoGo Man: a fairytale about a boy who grew up in discoland. Have hard time recalling names but wish I could return for a minute. What made matters worse: the owner of the club, and the boy who died, lived on the same block. After all,I am a butch gay man. Just went back to the city for first time in years and 46th looks weird with no black stairway snaking up the side of the building. There was a contest one set Of weekends which I came in second and got Remember Me. It is free and quick. City-Data Forum Message. But in areas near an expressway or hospital - for instance - they were doing business This happened in July of if anybody wants to dig for the accounts. They rarely had the nerve to mingle. I never wanted to arouse more trouble than I was already in;driving under the influence,without auto insurance,transporting drugs across state lines,and prostitution. So if another long-gone and notorious club in Greenhills was too crowded, or "not happening," Plan B at least in my part of town was to drive out to Monfort Heights. I smile at the memories and mostly I thank Denise for being the lady I will never forget. One of the guys who often headlined went by the name Jeremiah with various spellings Shastid. Everywhere but gaeity I think I saw 3 dancers that night and then I ran off feeling warm inside lol. Page 4 of 7. Classy dude!!!

But during the Sohio era the largest Cincinnati convenience store chain was King Kwik. They were "all over the map. But in areas near an expressway or hospital - for instance - they were doing business So one of their ad slogans was a jab at UDF: "We're there when you need us. An actor dressed not too much differently than the in famous kid-show host "Uncle Al" filmed all the ads twice, then the producers would create a "split screen" commercial so it appeared that he was twins - who were known as the Kwik Brothers. The other motto for the stores, "Kwik in, Kwik out" started or ended plenty of jokes back in the day. One suitable for including in a family-friendly forum was, "Why do hold-up men love robbing King Kwiks? Of course all this was when no one had gotten the idea to plop a convenience store on every gas-station lot instead of a business office and repair garage. Not to mention putting gas pumps outside lots of supermarkets! As for the night spot on Old Colerain, my mind's too full of King Kwik jingles to pull up its name. But my hunch is that this is the club which - in a bold move since it wasn't in Newport - started featuring ahem "exotic" dancers when the disco craze was on the wane. One of the guys who often headlined went by the name Jeremiah with various spellings Shastid. His family had immigrated from some Middle Eastern country or other in his childhood, so his actual surname probably wasn't that much different than what he was known by. Anyway, a friend of mine at college in Indiana hailed from that part of the world and was acquainted with "Jeremiah. Big mistake! Classy dude!!! Then, funny how these things happen, the building mysteriously went up in flames. While on a west-side night spot scandal roll, let's also air out the "West Side Story" story. During the years when all cool people were doing the hustle 'cause that's the way uh huh uh huh they liked it, a prosperous local restaurateur bought a building located on Cheviot Rd near North Bend, maybe vice versa, and opened a disco. Few if any guys ever met a girl named Maria there. But West Side Story was a clever name for a place situated on that side of town. Word soon got out on the teen-age wire, no less quickly and reliably than Twitter does today, that getting carded was never a problem there. So if another long-gone and notorious club in Greenhills was too crowded, or "not happening," Plan B at least in my part of town was to drive out to Monfort Heights. A few weeks before their senior year in high school was to begin, two kids did just that and only one made it home. After knocking back a goodly quantity of beers at West Side Story, they sped around aimlessly for a while before deciding to return to familiar territory. The driver lost control on one of Montana Ave's curves and smashed into a tree, killing the passenger instantly. What made matters worse: the owner of the club, and the boy who died, lived on the same block. This happened in July of if anybody wants to dig for the accounts. And this is also a hint to our photo poster to find some "now, then, and way back when" pics of where North Bend Rd takes its bend to the east. If it is, where's Ron's Roost? Hasn't it always been there? West Side Story. Now that was a place to behold. It was on the lower level of the strip mall. One night his buddy actually got bit by Red's pitcher Pedro Bourbon during a fight. Does anyone remember the club or restaurant with the big flaming torchs outside in that strip mall? American Luxury. Some of them I have already posted. A bunch of new photos! Wesselman Rd. Had to "LOL" over seeing the "waterbed warehouse" sign on Glenway. Talk about a fad that's dead and buried and likely to never be seen again. Waterbeds did give you a good night's sleep and were fun to, uh, play on though. Approaching Miamitown from the east on Harrison Pike now probably involves driving across a concrete deck bridge with low and plain barriers on either side. Crossing bridges was also more fun when the roadbed "sang. And some spans like the Suspension prefaced with "Roebling" if you must Bridge still offer those sensations. Great pictures. Was that the old "downtown" Riverside in the picture of River Road facing west towards Anderson Ferry where a road veers off 50 for a minute and then back on? To this day it still looks kind of like an abandonded old town square to me. I always wondered if there were businesses at one time in that area.
