Bright College Years, With Pleasure Rife, The Shortest Gladdest Years Of Life...
We apologize for two Yale posts in one week, but this is worth noting. If you read Towleroad you no doubt know about the Yale a cappella gay bashing. It’s very strange for us to write about, partially because two members of that a cappella group (in previous years) were longterm boyfriends of ours. Many other members of the group were our close friends (and not all of them, by far, are or were even gay).
Apparently the group and their alumni are putting a lot of pressure on San Francisco authorities to prosecute the kids to the full extent of the law, though those authorities are dragging their feet. The group continued on their winter tour without the most seriously injured kid, and are trying to stay positive about it (we imagine with the usual help of buckets and buckets of Natty Ice).
What’s funny about this, if there is anything funny at all, is that we always thought of the Baker’s Dozen was the STRAIGHT Yale a cappella group. But in retrospect, the idea of a straight Yale a cappella group is pretty hilarious.
