An assembly of beautiful people gather for Hunky Jesus in the park
Is that your torn Bible on the ground?
Gay C/DC rocks the stage
And the Hunky Jesus winner is . . . Baby Jesus
Like Folsom Street Fair, the Hunky Jesus and WTF Mary contest marks the SF spiritual calendar of fantasy, spectacle and the sublime. This was the 36th annual contest and my first HJ in many years since I’ve been living in Tokyo.
I like how each Jesus created their own storyline, often independent of the Christian chronology. A 9 month pregnant woman won WTF Mary. “Good timing on her part,” as my friend said. Baby Jesus, “I’m just a baby,” won the HJ category. His is probably the sexiest adult diaper I have ever seen, and he won a lot of attention by pouring milk from his baby bottle across his hairy chest.
Thanks, Sister Roma, and all the good nuns for an outstanding event that brought together freaks, families, and pure joy.
