Your Paris Winter Getaway
By Bill Malcolm*
Winter is the perfect time to visit Paris.
The crowds are gone. The weather is not as
cold as many U.S. cities. Since you will be
spending a lot of time in museums, it does
not matter anyway. Plus, Paris has a great
gay scene and a gayborhood (The Marais).
I snagged a great low fare on Delta Airlines.
The service was exceptional—and
everything was free. Free hot dinner and
breakfast, free headsets, free blankets and
pillows, free eyeshades, and more.
Once in Paris, hop on the commuter rail
to town, the RER-B then take the Metro to
get to your hotel from the Gare du Nord
Where to Stay
I stayed at The Moxy, a new Marriott brand
geared for millennials. The rate was very
reasonable (it varied by day with one day at
just 93 Euros or around $110). It is located
near the Marais in the Bastille District
and near no less than 3 Metro stations.
You can walk to many of the major attractions
or hop on the subway. Two nearby
stores (Franprix) have everything you need
including salad bars, hot sandwiches, and a
great selection of wine.
The bars are mostly in the Marias. Bears
will of course like the Bears’ Den. The
Open Café serves food and is a lot of fun.
Sly Bar has a great happy hour and karaoke
on Mondays and Tuesdays. The Raidd
bar has a shower show. You can dance the
night away at Le Depot.
What to do
The first day I walked around the historic
Marais District. Like many gayborhoods, it
has been gentrified and is now full of highend
stores as well.
The second day visit the Eiffel Tower,
the Arc de Triomphe, walk along the
Seine River, and explore the shops of the
Champs-Elysees. Then visit the new Leonardo
da Vinci exhibit at The Louvre.
The third day explore the Natural History
Museums, the zoo (Le Zoo du Jardin des
Plantes), the Indoor Tropical Gardens, the
Botanical Gardens, and then walk back to
the hotel. There is also a farmer’s market
on Sundays in the Bastille District where
you can find local delicacies including pig’s
feet, French cheeses, Paella, and every kind
of pastry and bread you could want.
I liked the new Liberation Museum (Musee
de la Liberation de Paris) which chronicles
the German occupation of France.

Day four go to visit Montmartre and the
Sacred Heart Cathedral. Great views of
Paris. Be sure and visit the Montmartre
Museum as well and the associated Renoir
Where to eat
Grab coffee at Alma Coffee. Don’t ask for
milk or cream in your coffee. The French
don’t use it and don’t drink (although they
eat a lot of cheese).

• Your ATM card works at French
banks and they don’t charge a withdrawal
• Many of the museums are free the
first Sunday of the month in the winter.
• Paris is seven hours ahead of Chicago
so the jet lag is a hassle. Try to check
into your hotel early but wait until 3 to take
a nap. On the way home, stay up late at
home to re-adjust.
• The Euro is worth slightly more
than the U.S. dollar.
• Tips are included at restaurants.
• Buy a 10 ticket pack of Metro tickets
• Turn off your phone and put it in
Airplane mode. Shut off all data for all
your apps too. Otherwise you will face
roaming charges from French carriers
which can be quite high. Most places have
free internet so you can stay connected that
• Most locals speak some English but
if you can, try to start the conversation in
For more information and travel ideas
Paris has a number of LGBTQ publications
all of which have city gay guides. Qweek
has a lot of ideas especially for nightlife
(Qweek.fr) along with maps of the neighborhoods.
Strobo Magazine has a great
map of the nightlife (strobomag.com).
Tribu is another great publication also with
ParisInfo.com has travel tips as well and
you can visit them at the Hotel de Ville
(City Hall) in the Marias.
You can’t beat a winter visit to gay Paree.

THE TRUMP IMPEACHMENT - HOW ARTISTS ARE RESPONDING
Donald Trump as President of the United
States has caused more upheaval in this
democracy than any previous president
or any other political individual in U.S.
history. He has caused much anxiety and
angst even before he was elected to the
presidency by the electoral college, with
at least a five million deficit of actual
votes cast. Trump threatened many
artists and other individuals even before
his inauguration and following. His
bullying, intimidation, attempts to revive
libel laws and attempting to revoke
T.V. licensees, and, to sue individuals
who criticized him gained him no
friends among performing artists of all
Artists are historically the first to react
to tyranny, repression, bigotry, and
racism. There are at least 39 known
musicians who have complained about
or refused Trump to use their music
in his campaigns and rallies. Among
them is Elton John who objected to
Trump using "Tiny Dancer", and, "Little
Rocket Man", at his rallies. although
Elton John did perform at Trump's third
wedding to Melania, he fell out with
Trump after hearing his initial campaign
speeches. Others include Neil Young,
for Trump's use of "Rocking In The Free
World" although he had the rights to use
the music. Even deceased musicians,
George Harrison's Estate rebelled against
the use of "Here Comes The Sun", in
Trump's inauguration. Others who
have protested Trump in their concerts
and other performances include: Adele,
Beyonce, Cher, Kendrick Lamar, R.E.M.,
Madonna, and, John Legend, to name
only a few who rejected Trump as an
uncouth individual and as president.
Visual artists working with varied media
from drawing, painting, sculpture and
other in-between materials have been
responding to Trump's incompetence
and bigotry for the past 3+ years.
Perhaps one of the most telling of

metaphoric paintings is one created by
Brian Stauffer, a political cartoonist, who
painted a U.S. flag being shredded through
a White House that is dark except for
one window lighted presuming Trump

attractive to so many at this moment and

Authors who have protested Trump are
too numerous to list, possibly the one
who will be most remembered is known
as "Annonymous" who has a book being
released this week titled, "Warning".
Annonymous, claiming to be on the
inside of the White House with inside
knowledge of a reckless, possibly mentally
incompetent, dangerous individual in
Donald Trump, who should definitely not
be reelected and should be removed from
office before more damage is done.
One female artist going by the name
Swoon, has stated where the arts should
attempt to be during the remainder of the
Trump dynasty, quoted, " Well, the United
States has historically been a racist, sexist
nation, By law and be deed. And this is
changing. As that changes, huge numbers
of people who are uncomfortable with
change, who are a little disenfranchised,
who need someone to blame for their
unhappiness have found a candidate who
suggests to them that all of their worst
impulses are acceptable.......My goal is to
get past my bitterness and learn to have
compassion for what I see as the misguided
suffering of those 60 million people who
thought this (Trump) government was

Hatsune Miku is back this year with a new
design for the winter season of Hokiado in
Japan. This character variation of Hatsune
Miku is called "Snow Miku".
Each year, the character design for one of
Japan's famous pop star/VIRTUAL DIVAS
is chosen through fan-made submissions
with a new theme each year. Submissions
already happened for this year and were
up for votes on Goodsmile Company's
website, while submissions for artwork are
submitted to Piapro. The results this year
were announced at one of Hatsune MIku's
concert, The Magical Mirai 2019.
Here are some of the designs that were
voted upon fans.

This year's winner is design number 3! The
main visual for “SNOW MIKU 2020” is the
work of illustrator “Hanekoto”.
Hanekoto illustrated a natural landscape
of Hokkaido with animals living there,
and SNOW MIKU in a marching bandlike
costume cheerfully playing a music
instrument. This is a cute and lively
marching band of the forest, which lets its
music resonate in winterly Hokkaido.
THE LAST WORD
America can't seem to get to freedom - Part 2
The great debate will continue because we
wont let go of the rotted beliefs of the past
to enjoy the fruits of the future. We discover
something, then we scream in fear and ban it
and then we decide it is OK. Then a miracle is
declared. I would argue man has done most of
the heavy lifting. And that is my point really.
How can you frighten a man whose
hunger is not only in his own cramped
stomach but in the wretched bellies of
his children? You can't scare him – he
has known a fear beyond every other.
Man considers himself a sinner. We drive each
other mad with it, self-flagellation generally
is hitting oneself with a whip as part of a
religious ritual like Gay S&M really, but its
just not the gays but others mostly who feel
constant pressure to prove themselves worthy.
Dads work hard to earn the bread, Moms do
things out of a labor of love, Philanthropists
give until it hurts, all others take. This is but
one of our long held non-mailable beliefs.
The results almost universally made worse by
the indifferent fixes of the ruling class. Simply
because the ruling class has not ever once
needed fixes. That is maybe, until now.

I give you a cautionary tale of how Hitler put
gay men and women in the camps to suffer
along side the other undesirables, only to
suffer again by being forced to wear a pink
triangle intended as a badge of shame. But a
badge reclaimed by the LGBT community as
a symbol to unite us in our struggles against
continued discrimination. Those that know
and understood we were not welcome. Later
