Gay Roman Holiday


Planning a trip to the land of Gladiators and well-endowed statues? So are a brave group of American Catholics intent on showing the Vatican the difference between Jesus’ teachings and their latest anti-gay edict. Today’s New York Times dishes:

Responding to reports that the Vatican may be close to releasing a directive to exclude most gay candidates from entering the priesthood, leaders of Roman Catholic men’s religious orders in the United States are planning to travel to Rome to voice their objections in person.

So kudos to these fine men of the cloth, the Conference of Major Superiors of Men (ed. note: hmmm). We here at Queerty would like to help them plan their getaway to that Gucci boot-shaped country. While at St. Peter’s you can light a votive and pray to the Good Lord to knock some sense into these so called Christians.

When in Rome, stay at the Casa Howard with modern designs and a deal-making on-site Turkish Bath. Grab a drink at Rome’s best wine bar, Tramonti e Muffati and then party the night away at Hangar. Monday’s porn video night but you really want to show up on Thursday when the Italian strippers make like the statue of David.

See, you can fight for gay rights and party all at once.
