The Black Guard of Minneapolis welcomed out-of-town and local friends to its 32nd annual Black Frost Run the weekend of February 6-8, with the Days Inn-Midway in St. Paul as the host hotel.
On Saturday afternoon, February 7, the run’s show was presented at Rumors/Innuendo in Downtown St. Paul. Entertaining and fabulous as always, the show had a different feel this year. Historically, members of club have presented it in a dark bar on a stage with theatrical lighting. This year’s show was performed against a backdrop of floor-to-ceiling windows in sun-drenched Innuendo. Putting aside metaphoric parallels about increasing openness and visibility for the gay and leather communities, I’ll just say that the new venue was refreshing, transforming the show.
