Gay men know that it’s not only women who are concerned with their image. Men have an image, too. In fact, a man’s image goes a long way toward shaping what others think about him.
Probably the single greatest mistake men make in the public arena is failing to control how they are perceived by others. This relinquishment of control causes many men to slip into a routine and dress in accordance with the style of their parents.
They don’t realize that they may have fallen a rung or two lower on the social ladder—simply because of their failure to know what works and what doesn’t in terms of wardrobe, haircut, and other matters of personal comportment. Here in Hawaii, we rely on the comfort of shorts and aloha shirts.
And, of course, if you’re comfortable wearing those, please wear them. One of the constant struggles individuals (and especially gay individuals) have in society is conforming to a social construct and and worrying which rung they are on the ladder.
At Bacchus, we don’t care about social ladders. We want you to be yourself. If you want a makeover, get one. Do it for yourself, not for others. We want you to be happy being you (before the Thursday $5 tequila shots).
If you want to dye your faux hawk orange, wear eyeliner, lipstick and rouge, we don't care.
And be beautiful on the inside. That’s what really matters and people who know you will know your true image.
On tonight‘s Rupaul’s Drag Race, the queens give drag makeovers to social media superstars. Come watch your favorite contestant and drink tequila with us!
That’s why we love Rupaul’s Drag Race and her trivial sign-off line:
“If you don’t love yourself, how the hell are you gonna love somebody else?”
Can I get an “Amen?”
