Russia isn’t all about love these days, not if you’re a member of the LGBT community, so I won’t be going back there anytime soon, but the title is more about James Bond anyway.
Based on the cars alone, I’m a Bond fan. Just so we’re on the same page here, by Bond I mean Daniel Craig and Pierce Brosnan, not Sean Connery.
Also, any movie that puts a guy in tux? Nice.
Speaking of formal style…
Here’s a picture of Humphrey Bogart wearing a white dinner jacket and the Russian hat I mentioned in my post earlier this morning for those of you who were curious 🙂

For Pride this year, we have our first ever LGBTQ2 themed Heritage Minute.
For all you non-Canadians, Heritage Minutes are sixty second films that document significant people and events in Canadian history. Often, moments and viewpoints are explored in these mini-movies that our high school history books failed to mention.
Case in point: Gay activist, Jim Egan.
Never heard of him? Neither had I.
Today, James Egan would be called a gay activist. Back in 1951, when he first sat down at his typewriter and pounded out an article entitled, I Am a Homosexual he was just a young man who was pissed.
Jim battled rampant homophobia with letters and op-ed pieces in the press, eventually taking the Government of Canada to court demanding spousal benefits for his life partner.
In 1995, Jim and his partner Jack Nesbit cruised down Yonge Street, the same street they could have once been arrested on for simply holding hands, as honorary grand marshals in the Toronto Pride parade.
Happy Pride 🙂
