Time and time again, we at TTT see trannies pushing girls out of the way to catch the train, let doors go unopened, even take the booth seat at you favorite cozy two-top. As gay men, we owe the same courtesies to women as straight men (which are frequently ignored by them as well). In fact, it is often the heteros who look to us, setting the example. Give her the single seat on the subway, open her cab door and let her in first, wait for her to be seated at the dinner table and stand when she gets up powder her nose. Obviously, in large group settings, this is not always appropriate but ake it is from us, with all of your tranny drama, you at least owe it to her to feel like a true lady.

You're probably 5'10" to 6'. Reddish looking beard with reddish-brown hair. Orange shoes or orange and black runners. Anyhow, you always get off at Myrtle-Wykoff and maybe you should take it another stop one day. We could get off together. Zing! Oh yea, I am short, brown hair, beard, grey coat, few rings in my face and an all around rad guy.

While engaged in conversations with friends who are infamous for getting out of line; when you're waiting for drink at Boiler Room on Friday night and someone tries to step in front of you; when you're on the L in the morning and some bitch decides to have a full-on conversation with their friend in your ear (BEFORE you've had your morning latte).
Reign-it-in; Check yourself
Note: If you're feeling extra ghetto one day, can be led with 'Oh no you di-int'

“Millennials, or Gen Ys, are definitely different. They seem to feel more empowered – and more entitled– than any generation before them. They have an innate team orientation that makes them excellent collaborators. And the ideas about issues like marriage and career are radically different. Their “American dream” isn’t about the picket fence; it’s a flexible freelance career and a life defined by passion. … Gen Ys see themselves as change-makers. But they’re also busy trying to have a middle-class life, so their protests take different form than youth protests of the past. They see corporation’s as having lots of power but little heart, and they try to create change by using their dollars. The “aha” for corporations is to recognize that values and authenticity are important to this generation — and that directly affects how they spend. American Apparel, for example, has been totally embraced by youth because of its labor practices. Shopping there make them feel like they’re spending money in the right place. Companies that really “walk their talk” about core values will be endeared. If you want to be relevant to Gen Ys, you need to understand their mindset.”Note, the second to last hipster is called "The Williamsburg". We're so 2000 and late.

For a second time, a pair of Stubbs has made it into "Shoes". Footwear is the most telling part of a man's wardrobe. These broadcast the sort of irreverent whimsy at home at any cocktail party.

Let's measure how things in Palm Beach compare to those in Williamsburg:
Saturday Evening Festivities:
11211 - Recovering from Friday's happy hour - turn dinner - turn Boiler Room expedition - turn trick-fest, arrange a Saturday night dinner at your place for six via text and Twitter. By the time a meal fit for Martha, with modifications for vegetarians and glutards, hits the table, it's 10pm and everyone is drunk on red and Grinding away on their iPhones. Forget dinner, drink more, trunk show, car service, on the dancefloor at Sugarland by 1 and in a car home with a tickity-tack trick by 2:30.
33480 - After an afternoon perusing the sales at Saks while avoiding cruisy eye contact from the sales associates, pop home for a workout, shower and cocktail with the fam (yours or your host's) before heading out in uniform (blue blazer, khakis or crisp jeans and loafers) for a night of party hopping. Begin at Ralph Lauren, vodka soda, Shiny Sheet photo, vodka soda, gift bag, door. Motor over to Jungle Road for exotic animal charity event. Pay respect to aging gay establishment, endure ass grabbing with a smile, vodka soda, vodka soda, vodka soda, dinner plans, New York Social Diary photo, door. Table for eight on the patio at McCarty's. Facelifted and belligerent aging gay who's picking up the tab declares "I will not sit in a parking lot!" Relocate indoors. Vodka, vodka, chicken, vodka. Hit the Lounge, survey the fresh meat, remain polite to the old. Wake up at 10 AM, Sunday not quite sure how you got home.
Libation of choice:
11211 - Bloodies at brunch, Pinot Gris for the afternoon, reds at dinner, vodka to maintain
33480 - Bull shot for breakfast, champagne at lunch, manhattan before dinner, vodka to maintain
Tracks on the Dancefloor:
11211 - Kid Kudi, Discovery, Cassius, Lady Gaga remixes, "Meet Me Halfway", Black Eyed Peas
33480 - Ke$sha, Rihanna, Madonna, whatever Daisy Deadpetals brings up from Miami
11211 - An ever-growing influx of boys from far-flung places (Jersey, The Bronx, HK and WV) makes going out in the 'burg more diverse. You're as likely to meet your banker-husband on the stage at Sugar as you are your next disposable trick.
33480 - The men of Palm Beach are a polarized set. Fresh out-of-high school boys and guys visiting home from Princeton, Duke and Penn sip vodka sodas alongside late-in-life homo converts two generations older. Most of the guys in Palm Beach are under 30 or over 60: waiting to begin their careers or having already completed them with much success.
But, the most notable difference . . .
Despite its exclusively WASPy origin, Palm Beach has morphed into an increasingly open society. Still a conservative place and staunchly Republican, there is much socioeconomic co-mingling in the PB. Some of the biggest events of the social season are hosted by GPCs at which WAMRs and millionaires do not self-segregate but party together, and, in many cases, are the very best of friends. For all its supposed exclusivity, Palm Beach is a place that requires only a good pair of shoes and good attitude to enjoy.

When caught between ladies' footwear staples like a camel-on-black spectator pump and the perennial patent ballet flat, a tranny's best move is Gucci's classic horse bit loafer.

SPOTTED on holiday vacay . . . Marc Jacobs and lover Lorenzo Martone mixed it up on the beaches of St. Barts with Rachel Zoe and her banker-hubby Rodger Berman as Lindsay Lohan tweeted her resolutions from a yacht deck . . . Miami Beach was invaded by the design set: Oprah's decorating guru Nate Berkus and a gaggle of other international designers spent New Years at the Standard creating a poolside scene described as "a parade of homosexuals" . . . members of that crowd and others crossed the beach for a party at the toney townhouse of John Barman inside the modern Asian Setai residences . . . down the beach on Ocean Drive, designer Roric Tobin kept cozy for the new year at a beachfront condo with boyfriend Justin and friends . . .
Miami Beach was invaded by the Haus of Gaga on New Years Eve. After being heralded as THE place to be for New Years Eve by Perez Hilton, Lady Gaga attracted her "little monsters" and trannies of all stripe to back-to-back shows at the James L. Knight Center and the revamped Fontainebleau . . .
