The first time, during it's heyday in the 80's. Because I didn't have a high ass he obliged, but somewhat hesitatingly. How do I meet masculine gay men? I remember the place well. The conversational gambits at Rounds were in general more mannerly and indirect. Maybe now it's a crime but back then everything wasn't so sterile and rigid like it is today. Anymore Joey Stefano stories?
I often end the night here listening to the piano after Oscar Wildes.
Not too long ago I saw this real cute boy hanging out with friends on Christopher Street. Oh great, just what the gay community should be focused on, a gay hustler bar from the "good ol days" and its AIDS spreading owner. Did anyone here that posts on DL work at Rounds as a male prostitute? The guys were not really pros. One of the sweetest love stories I know began at the Haymarket. We know it wasn't The Hay Market.
Any gay man who had unprotected anal sex after who was paying any attention whatsoever to the national news knew that he was taking a terrible risk. Most were actually quite decent boys as I remember. He should be run out of town. R12 Do a search of the book title. For those of us 'mature enough' to remember the old school leather bars, this is a great place to be.
