So this is a little video that my husband R put together for me a few years ago.
What you are seeing is the path outside our cabin during the Midwest Men’s Festival. You can watch this and take a lovely walk through our camp outside out cabin and see the sarongs we sell as a community service (we’ve asked if we should stop and were threatened with our lives–LOL!)
This video makes me smile and tear up a little. You can see Sarah Jane wandering here and there and relaxing in the shade.
Many of the days temperatures reach the nineties and even lower 100s. Therefor, wearing as little as possible is the thing to do! Sarongs are the choice of outerwear and we’ve taken to selling them for really cheap prices, just enough to try and break even. We buy them, making sure there is only one of each because, after all, no one wants to be wearing the same thing as someone else! This is gay men after all! LOL!
Midwest Men’s Festival was the inspiration for my novel, “Summer Lover.” The main character finds a couple of men who do just what we do. Sell sarongs. At first he’s too chicken to get one. He sees it as wearing a dress and that is the LAST thing he’s going to do. But with a little encouragement, he does buy one and finds out how freeing it really is.
I hope you enjoy!
Peace and Love,
