Gay Hotel Is Seeking A "Straight" Employee

Categories: Gaaaaayyyyyy

The Out NYC Hotel is the gay hotel complex on West 42nd Street, attached to the gay club xl.

But they don't want anyone too "gay" working the spa, it seems.

Various people just got an email from the place saying:

"We have a 5000sf foot ultra sexy and luxurious wellness center with 3 water falls, 2 hot tubs, a sauna, a hamam, a large gym, a spa deck and more.

"We are looking for a 'straight' good looking young man that probably is in school now or works retail or is working part time that would enjoy this fun job.

"Who ever finds this person gets a free membership to our amazingly sexy wellness center."

Weird. Creepy. Some gay hotel complex!

Even if putting quote marks around "straight" implies that the person should simply appear to be hetero -- whatever that means -- I still want to spew some gay vomit.

Are their clients so self-loathing that they can't deal with a gay towel boy who actually seems gay because he indeed is gay?

And are we still stuck on those antiquated ideas that there's a "gay" way to act and a "straight" way to act?

End of blog. End of "quote marks."

I guess the ad writer was too worried about appearing feminine to just say they wanted someone butch for the position.

Oh come on girls. Your acting so dam New York. I recall a nice little gay bar in Austin, Texas back around 1984 that my brother told me about. He knew very well how much that I love big hairy muscular dirty white country boys. And in my youth had many climb up into my bedroom window at around 12:00 in the morning after dropping thier girlfriend off at home. Well there was one of those bartening at the bar .And he was just what the doctor ordered. He was 6'4" and 238lbs. And straight. And absolutly magnificent eye candy. I'll say that young man was so hot that he made my brain smolder. And he had an identical twin gay brother. And I hit that bar everynight that he worked. And he was totaly unattainable they say in all the 4 years that he worked there. Well every night that I came into the bar I showered him with admiration, praise, and flattery. And not to mention I would continual all night tell him what I would do to every inch of that magnificent body of his from head to toe, with my lips, teeth, tongue, and hands. Well I guess that the morals to the story is that kindness and flattery can and will get you any where! He guit his job, and moved to Florida. And let him have his girlfriends. And I had a great 5 years of total bliss ,and at the same time I had two other srtraight boyfriends. He was 26, one was 24, and the other was 19. And Ihad not one day of bull-crap, strings-attached, or gay-antics. Ever! And that was with keeping a gay lover from 1969 to 2000. When I lost Dennis to Agent Orange lung cancer.Dennis was 57years old at the time of his death. I was born gay, lived gay, and will proudly die gay. I've been tought not to place limitations on my self. And for all those hot country boy climing through my bedroom window, my mothe and farther never had a problem. I guess some people are just more luckythan others. And at more than 60 years of age I have a wonderful 23 year old gay boyfriend! So don't put limitations on yourself! Life is to dam short for that kind of hog-wash. GOD did not give you the toys between your legs if he didn't want you to use them. Don't limit yourself, enjoylife, and be safe. Life is truely short. .So get a life.

don't they know that "masculine" is the new "straight" when it comes to self-loathing gays?

This makes me ashamed to be gay--but I must say I'm not surprised. A lot of the gay bars operate on the same principle.

Hmm. If this is the style & attitude of the place, I predict they won't last long (as a "gay" hotel). Expect a style change by...oh, next Jan., if not sooner.

yes! there are gay ways to act and straight ways to act.

works in retail. that´s the part where you have to have experience in how to fold and unfold towels. know a thing or 2 about laundry. (it won´t be all glamorous and fun).in school now. low pay.and now they are searching for free talent scouts in exchange for a bathhouse card to look for trade for this joint. 42nd ain´t what used to be.

what about chaz bono?

Appalling.  They should immediately be called out (like you have!) for discrimination.  Similar to other minorities being told not to be "too black" etc.  They will not ever get my gay $.  I will not recommend to visiting friends to go there.

I would copy the ad and send it to the NY Attorney General.  Discrimination in the making.

Wow - isn't it illegal to discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation in NY state? But you're right - it probably means straight-appearing.

Chile, you need help, so cut the typing and hit that psychiatrist's couch!

"Don't put limits on yourself." Isn't it the Out hotel that's doing that by saying we have to be "straight" acting to get a job??

Yes, it reeks of self loathing. They should call the hotel a "gay" hotel in quotes.

LIMEN ! and always  chilled!

Boy talk about a hot topic!  Cut the typing? And only one day on the page, and then gone? VonD. First I'de say sad, sad, sad! You sound like you've been really heavly indoctrinated by one of those religions that tell you to hate yourself. Or you might just be one of those prudish self hate mongering Lincoln Log Boys you know what I'm saying!  I don't need help. I just need a good supply of American made condoms! As for the psychiatrist's couch, well how romantic. Like dude what planet are you from? I showed your comment to three friends that are psychiatrist, and they pissed thier self laughing. Those couchs whent out decades and decades ago. Like your prudish ideology! Sweety, and I use that term factiously. Get a life. Other than an ability for only two liners. So much for your sad inabilities? My lover an I owned NA NA'S. It was in the old Marlin Beach Hotel, on Fort Lauderdale Beach, from 1973 TO 1986. We knew gays peoplenot only from America, but from around the world. And a hairdresser hears more than a psychiatrist. So being a business man, there are two things you learn. One is that the costomer is always right. But there are laws of discrimination of employment. And third overhead. The second is for the xl. to deal with not it's gay fickled patrons how do not understand to laws. Mr. Musto replace this story to teach the gay public the dilemma that xl may be in! Thank you Michael. Oh one more thing. Deepak Chapra agree on one thing. When a man puppress his natural urges. HE may be come a Jeffrey Dahmer, a child-molesting priest,or worse!
