These Santas Are Running in Speedos for a Good Cause. Promise!

It’s the middle of December, which can mean only one thing: ‘Tis the season to run through the streets wearing only red Speedos and Santa hats. Okay, and running shoes. Benefiting the San Francisco AIDS Foundation and Team SF (to send athletes to the 2010 Gay Games in Cologne), some twenty runners — armed with cash pledges from supporters — took to the Castro for some nearly-naked cardio. And you thought selling sex was bad for AIDS. (Video via LexMag)

    Why are the homosexuals always about getting naked in public?

  • Peter

    Hey Bonnie

    Why are heterosexuals always getting into women other that their wives ( I am assuming they are totally naked)?

    Why not?!?

  • romeo

    Hey, idiot from Duluth, ever seen “Girls Gone Wild?” Or how abut those straight naked runs on college campuses?

    Oh, I’m being too abstract. How about this, Duluth, you’re no fucking better than we are, so can the “holier than thou” bullshit.

    @ Duluth —

    We get naked for the same reason my chihuahua licks her cooch: Cuz we can.

  • RomanHans

    If you want to get in touch with Ms. McHenry, Google says her MySpace name is “boner_69.”

    And if speedos are “naked,” then I’ve never seen Michael Phelps clothed.

  • Lady Ga-Gasp

    One of those guys in the video is the perennial hot bartender from the great (now defunct) SOMA dive bar on Folsom whose name escapes me. He used to wear his hair long (now short) but otherwise looks the same as he did 20 years ago. Fucker.

  • Freddie

    Lady Ga-Gasp, that’s Sip (his nickname), a very sweet guy. He’s now running Underground SF on lower Haight St., which is gay each Saturday night, including Cockfight this Saturday!

    No. 1 · Bonnie McHenry – Duluth, Minnesota, “Why are the homosexuals always about getting naked in public?”

    If you had bothered to look at the video, you’d have seen
    that everyone was wearing a bathing suit. Nobody watching it in person seemed to mind. Why should you?

  • Aaron in Honolulu

    Heh, older men :)

  • Chris

    I live in Duluth, MN too(yes I have my reasons!)and I have yet to see any man, let alone men, running around naked, although I vote YES to them doing so, and often! Bonnie, honey, what are you on and can you get me some?
