Big Gay Cookie MakingHappy Memorial Day weekend, everyone!  Now that you can officially wear white without sending the fashionista gays into a dizzy tizzy, bust out your loafers and pick up a copy of the Thursday May 21 edition of the New Paltz Times for an extra gay double feature highlighting Big Gay Hudson Valley and The New Paltz Pride March & Festival.

We hope you all have a safe and relaxing holiday weekend – and don’t forget, we’re now just one week from our Pride Preview Party at Locust Grove in Poughkeepsie.  If you haven’t seen all the big gay discounts lined up for you for this event, check out the event homepage and order your picnic dinner from the Artist’s Palate, download your big gay discount coupon to Arlington Wine & Liquor and brace yourself for an amazing sunset tour of the Samuel B. Morse home.

And now – on with the homo happenings!
