Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go Dancer

The artist formerly known as Georgios Kyriacos Panayiotou didn’t call herself Girl George, but she might have. When George Michael was arrested for performing a “lewd” act in front of an undercover policeman, he showed the world that gays could have class, by doing it in Beverly Hills. And his 1993 collaboration on Five Live with Queen speaks for itself.

Ken and George

As wagging gay tongues know, Girl George has just announced her intentions to form a civil union with her man Kenny Goss. Ken has pranced up the straight-and-narrow gay track all his life; from being on a varsity gymnastics team he went to being a flight attendant, then a sales rep for a cheerleading supply company and finally an art gallery owner.

Queerty has gift ideas for the lovely couple. S&M Supplies in Macclesfield, Cheshire has upscale BBQ equipment to heat up the newlyweds’ life together. And for those clean-up jobs in public places, Greatlinenz.com has a full assortment of floral-print lacy handkerchiefs.
