Gay Guy's Fashion Note: Hot Pink is NOT the New Black

Straight Guy,

I'm enjoying my long weekend in New York City to visit my friend.

The weather was gorgeous today, so we planned a whole day outside. That meant being prepared with sun block, water bottles, snacks, a sweater. While I was getting dressed, my friend packed the tote bag and asked me to carry it (she was already dealing with her purse). No problem, I said.

The pic is what came out of the closet. Literally and figuratively. I am all about materials promoting breast cancer awareness, but really, do I have to carry this?

Hot pink? Like I don't already have enough gay bells and whistles? No navy? No black?

So... I toted our stuff around New York today in this Malibu Barbie bag. Not one gay man in Chelsea, SoHo, or the West Village dared make eye contact. Pink, yes. Pretty, no.

WOW. That's not just pink-that's PINK.

As a woman, I want to say that I would find any man willing to carry around a tote bag promoting breast cancer awareness to be SMOKING HOT. Hot pink or not.

Bless your heart buddy! So hot - love seeing a man in pink and pink accessories - you rock!

I won't say the bag is too gay... unless you were toting around any of those babybel mini-bree cheeses...

You are too kind. I don't know that I rock. I think that's the end to my pink wardrobe.
