Gay Miniature Horses

You can’t tell, but the horse on the left had it hooves painted neon green.
You can’t tell, but the horse on the left had it hooves painted neon green.

Easter is one of my favorite holidays because I’m really fond of frilly dresses, flowers and rabbit imagery/rabbits made out of chocolate. This year I was in New Orleans for Easter and, of course, came to learn that the clever homosexuals down there had found ways to gay up the holiday.

Sadly, we barely missed the afternoon motorcycle parade where riders wear giant baby bonnets. In it’s wake, though, on the gay part of Bourbon, strewn with beads and plastic Easter eggs, we saw these two miniature horses. Their hooves were painted and people were stuffing dollars into their bridals. Yet another reason why New Orleans is amazing.

Culture Shock

By Erin Adair-Hodges

Art as Offering

In many religions and cultures, altars are used to present offerings, tokens of sacrifice. Over thousands of years, altars have become places where people seek solace and guidance. OffCenter Community Arts and the New Mexico Art Therapy Association will be accepting entries for the show Altars of Light on March 25 and 26 from noon to 6 p.m. at OffCenter (808 Park SW). The organizers are looking for art that incorporates the altar and "its image as sacred ground to promote healing from the wounds of sexual violence." Each artist is invited to submit up to two entries for this juried show. There is no entry fee. The opening reception for Altars of Light will be at OffCenter on Friday, April 2, from 5 to 8 p.m. Go to offcenterarts.org.
