Justin Sayre Of 'The Meeting' Skewers Planned Gay Boycott Of Fire Island

In his latest clip for HuffPost Gay Voices, writer-performer Justin Sayre tackles the controversy that ensued after two gay hoteliers, Ian Reisner and Mati Weiderpass, hosted Republican presidential hopeful Ted Cruz of Texas at their apartment. 

The media firestorm that ensued prompted a planned boycott of the Fire Island Pines because of Reisner's reported financial stake in the popular gay resort area.

The ever-irreverent Sayre, however, has a few doubts. 

Sayre's "International Order of Sodomites" (I.O.S.) variety show gathers once a month for "The Meeting," honoring an artist or a cultural work that is iconic to the gay community. The next installment of "The Meeting" hits San Francisco's Oasis on Aug. 1 

In other news, "Sparkle & Circulate with Justin Sayre," the official I.O.S. podcast, features an in-depth interview with singer-songwriter and visual artist Justin Vivian Bond.

Meanwhile, you can also view some previous performances from "The Meeting" on Sayre's official YouTube page. For more Sayre, head to Facebook and Twitter.
