Eclectic Bistro Bar
1425 Piedmont Ave., Atlanta, GA 30309 404-426-7728, facebook.com/eclecticbistrobar Good choices: a starter of Portuguese clams with chorizo, tomatoes and garlic croutons; Greek moussaka; and Italian veal marsala with Portobello mushrooms, roasted potatoes and sautéed spinach Robert said. “But porn is also about the natural variation of sexual desire. True story. Y’all remember Jerry Falwell, right? He was one of the most mean-spirited, homophobic evangelical leaders ever.
“His most successful fundraiser one year was sending people who made donations a video made with a hidden camera at the Folsom Street Fair. He said it was to provide evidence of how sick we are.
“But it was really gay porn for good Christians. They watched it, shocked and praying, while hiding their erections under Bibles. That’s what sexual oppression is all about – hiding your own taboo desire. ”
Most at the table laughed. Appetizers were arriving and the conversation turned to chatter. Robert reached for a clam and just as he did so, a man came to the table. “I’m sorry to be late,” he said.
Robert looked up and was astonished. If ever an outwardly perfect man had entered his vision, this was him.
“I’m Lee,” the stranger said extending his hand.
